Adventures in Salta and Jujuy

Exploring Argentina’s Northern Realm

Trip Level

This trip is rated Level 3, Moderate. Cultural explorations and day hikes are the focus of the trip, with hotel accommodations throughout. Much of the trip takes place at higher altitudes, ranging from 7,625 feet at Purmamarca to over 11,000 feet at the Cuesta del Obispo and the Salinas Grandes (this is by vehicle only). For your enjoyment of the trip, we recommend you make a special effort to be in very good physical condition, and ready to hike on varied terrain (rock and sand). We will be exploring a relatively undeveloped part of Argentina. Driving times are made longer by the narrow roads, and our hikes will often be cross country, not on developed trails.

Weather

Northwest Argentina has a generally mild subtropical highland climate. During fall and spring, the weather should be pleasant and dry, with lows in the 50s and highs in the low 80s, depending on elevation.
