Our Expert Guide will take you on an exciting adventure discovering Northern Argentina's most iconic attractions: Obispo Hill and Los Cardones National Park, from the top of Torreón Peak.
You will experience an unforgettable journey through Argentina's impressive nature, on an adventure for all five senses. This is a different kind of trekking tour where we will take time to interpret nature, take photographs, visit archaeological sites, and observe flora and fauna.
We'll travel from Salta towards the south, passing by the towns of Cerrillos and El Carril, before heading west in the direction of Chicoana (an excellent area for horseback riding). We'll then cross through the Yungas Forest, and after a few kilometers of ascent, arrive at Escoipe Ravine, where you can see cactus, cardons, carob trees, and landscapes full of of red rocks and multicolored crops.
After about a 2 hour car ride, we'll park our vehicle in Margarita and take a local bus line. This bus is mainly used by locals to move about the region, and also tourists who are traveling independently to Cachi. The bus will take us down road about 20 kilometers to the entrance of the National Park. Here, we'll begin our 4-6 hour hike through the park's spectacular scenery.
