Our Expert Guides will take you on a thrilling journey trekking in the "Yungas" (mountain jungle) area which surrounds the city of Salta.
We will explore the lush vegetation that composes the mountains and hills in the pre-cordillera region, and have the opportunity to admire the city of Salta and its valley from incredible natural lookouts.
We will set off on our journey early in the morning from Salta and head west, arriving at the nature reserve from where we will start our hike. The first part of the trek is steep, but very rewarding. We will enter the mountain forests following old trails, covered in vegetation, used by the few shepherds in the area.
Along the way we will observe domestic animals which, while they have owners, live a free life style during the day. With a little luck, we will also be able to see wild animals such Guans, Corzuelas (a kind of small deer) and various bird species, among others.
Join us for an exciting trekking adventure, discovering the magnificent landscapes of Salta!
