Full description
Start your day of nature exploration with a convenient pickup from your centrally-located hotel in Salta to be transferred to the beginning of your trail.

The half-day option offers you a moderate-level 3-hour hike. Arrive at the ravine to climb paths that border the river, and gradually ascend on its slopes to reach different panoramic viewpoints, where you’ll get beautiful views of the city of Salta. Enjoy the vegetation of the yungas with epiphytic plants, climbers, and other spices typical of this biome.  

If you choose the full day option, your hike will be 7 hours long at a more difficult level. Climb up the trails of La Quebrada to reach the mountains of Eastern Cordillera. Along the way, you’ll see imposing trees such as Ceibos, Nogales, Laureles, Cedars, Cebiles, Arrayanes, and Alders, among many others.
