Discover a kaleidoscope of colour and breath taking natural wonders

Marvel at the landscapes around Jujuy in Salta and beyond

Few venture to the wild Northwest of Argentina, but those that do are welcomed by rich Argentinian culture, striking mountain terrain, and moon-like landscapes all to themselves, as well as discovering quaint towns with fine food, great wine and quaint architecture.

Catamarca is the gateway to El Norte, where the spectacular Calchaquí Valleys begin their journey, winding through Tucumán, Cafayete and Salta. Horseback ride through the picturesque Tafí del Valle and don your hiking boots to take in the impressive rock formations of Quebrada de las Conchas near Cafayete and sweeping views of Quebrada de Humahuaca; a narrow mountain valley in the province of Jujuy.

It's in Argentina’s wild Northwest that you’ll find, not only its famously impeccable wilderness of astonishing contradictions but some of the highest vineyards in the world and award-winning wine. A few nights in a bodega near Cafayete or Salta is a must-do on your luxury Argentina holiday.

Speaking of “must-do,” those seeking solitude and a breath-taking expanse must head Northwest of Salta into the Argentine Andes. Here you’ll find La Puna; an intense, rich landscape with Inca ruins emerging from volcanic craters, immense, sparkling sand dunes, other-worldly pumice fields, glasslike lakes with flutters of flamingos, and sweeping salt flats.

Your Luxury Argentine Northwest Trip Ideas

 The Argentine Northwest makes for an incredible stand-alone destination; fly into Catamarca or Salta from Buenos Aires and self-drive or take a guided tour by road, foot and horseback. Combining Salta and La Pena with Iguaza Falls is also a great way to cover all that Northern Argentina has to offer. Those on the wine route may enjoy combining a few nights in Mendoza with a bodega in Cafayete, whilst those looking for adventure can begin their journey in Patagonia and traverse the Argentine/Chilean border all the way to the Atacama desert.
