Discover the wines of Cafayate in the Valley of the Calchaquies - Tour Extension

Discover the wines of Cafayate in the Valley of the Calchaquies, nestled in the Northwest of Argentina.

First, visit the colonial city of Sala, then venture into the semi-arid northwest region, where strange rock formations like "the windmill rock" dots the landscape. Wine taste in Colomé and Cafayate, admiring the breathtaking colorful scenery along the way.

Salta City Tour

Day 1

Upon arrival at Salta Airport, meet your guide, who will transfer you to your hotel. In the afternoon, take a half-day city tour to discover Salta, one of the most important cities in Northwest Argentina. Founded in 1582, this city still has a Hispanic character that distinguishes it from the rest of the Argentine capitals. Its skyline is outlined by the colonial façades of its houses and churches framed by the surrounding hills. Visit its churches, the National University, and its museums to learn about the 'Salteño' culture. Transfer to the San Bernardo Hill, which offers panoramic views of the city.

Afterward, drive 10 km (6 mi) to arrive in the summer village of San Lorenzo, located at the foot of the San Lorenzo 'Quebrada' (ravine). Contemplate the verdant landscapes offered by San Lorenzo and the nearby town of Lesser, ideal for taking pictures.

Finish off the tour at the fascinating artisan market before returning to your hotel, where you will spend the night.

Calchaquíes Valleys & Arrival in Cafayate

Day 2

Depart from Salta to start the Calchaquíes Valleys tour, known for its fascinating and ever-changing colors and terrains. Ascend the Cuesta del Obispo with its magnificent landscapes and hit a high altitude of 3400 meters above sea level at a point called Piedra del Molino (Stone Mill). As you descend, enter into the Recta del Tin Tin and go through the Cardones National Park until arriving in Cachi.

Take the Route 40, the most emblematic route in the west of Argentina, and arrive at Estancia Colomé. Visit its winery and learn about their particular wine process, which takes places in an area located 2400 meters (7800 ft) above sea level. Many wine varieties are produced here, including Argentina's classic: Cabernet-Malbec, which is a refined fruit-flavored red wine. Visit the James Turrell Museum, located within the Colomé Winery, featuring amazing works by these remarkable American artists who uses light and space to create optical illusions.

Transfer to Cafayate, and check in at your hotel, where the last Realist Governor of Salta Province lived.
