Day 1

Arrival in Salta, Argentina & Hike the Lerme Valley

Arrive in Salta, Argentina, and transfer to San Lorenzo, a small town about 15 km from Salta. Check in to the 3* Hotel Posada Don Numas, and then head out on a hike through a nearby canyon, passing gorges and arroyos in the Lerme Valley. Salta is a remote city in northwestern Argentina, and after reaching this tucked-away region, the dramatic landscapes and brisk hike will be a refreshing welcome. After the hike, relax in the hotel or explore the town. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Day 2

Train to the Clouds Ride

Wake early and go to the General Belgrano train station in Salta to board the famous Tren a las Nubes, the Train to the Clouds. This 15 hour round-trip train journey passes through 19 tunnels, 29 bridges, 13 viaducts, and winds through the Andes Mountains. The route was designed by an American engineer who used twists and turns in the route rather than a brake system. Along the way, enjoy beautiful views of the landscapes, Andean towns, and deep ravines. Return to Salta and transfer to your hotel at the end of the day. Breakfast & lunch are included aboard the train.

Day 3

Horseback Riding Through San Lorenzo

Have breakfast in your hotel and then meet your guide and fellow riders for a horseback riding tour near San Lorenzo. This full-day horseback ride is a relaxing, enjoyable way to see the hills, landscapes, and farms of the San Lorenzo region. Visit the Lesser farm and surrounding fields. In the late afternoon, return to your hotel in San Lorenzo and relax.

Day 4

River Rafting on the Dique Cabra Corral

Enjoy another full day of exciting adventures in this remote part of northwestern Argentina. After breakfast, embark on a full-day excursion to the Cabra corral for river rafting and trekking. First, hop into a river rafting boat to take on the rapids of the River Juramento. The Juramento river canyon is an amazing natural landscape. After tackling the rapids, hike through the Cerro Peñas Blancas, the White Pains Hills, until you arrive at an indigenous observatory. In the late afternoon, transfer back to your hotel in San Lorenzo.

Day 5

Salta City Tour & Departure

After breakfast, take a city tour of Salta, and climb the Cerro San Bernardo on the outskirts of the city. Then visit the Cathedral, Church of San Francisco, Town Hall, the Historic Museum of the North, as well as the crafts market where you can purchase silver trinkets and handicrafts. In the afternoon, transfer to the bus station or airport for your journey home or to your next destination in South America.
