Day 1Arrival in Salta & City Tour

Evening on Salta street

Welcome to enchanting Argentina. Meet your travel guide at the airport and head to your hotel in Salta. Unpack your luggage and go on a 3-hour tour to explore the city, known as the “pretty one”. Ride a cable car to the top of Cerro San Bernardo Hill and absorb the panoramic view of the city and the adjacent landscape below. Visit the inspiring Salta Cathedral, the 18th-century Cabildo, and the bustling center of Plaza 9 de Julio. Make your way to the regal Church of San Francisco and the formal Town Hall. Then acquire some local knowledge by seeing the exhibits and displays at the Archaeology Museum of the High Mountains, and enjoy bargaining at the local handicrafts market. Afterward, return to your hotel and gaze at the beautiful northwest Argentine skies as the sun sinks into the horizon.
