The Argentine Northwest is a charming land with multiple colors and experiences. Salta and Tucumán warmly welcome visitors and propose them to explore ancestral routes, discover archaeologcial and architectonic treasures, learn about brave men of the Argentine history and enjoy the Northern authentic culture that combines pre-Hispanic, Creole and modern traditions.
The Northern sun shines stronger and hardens the skin. It defines the profiles of cardons rising in the middle of the valleys. It accompanies travelers by meandering roads between mountains trying to reach villages where time seems to have stopped. It gets into the dense vegetation of Yungas, altitude forests where nature challenges adventurer spirits. It breaks the arid Puna soils, with its salt seas and red deserts. And it accompanies the route of the Train to the Clouds.
The Northern moon is festive. It follows zamba dances at folk festivals. It smells like locro, empanadas and red wines. It is present in coplas and traditional songs. It illuminates the hills; it is reflected on the dunes and on the salt fields; it accompanies rivers, cradles horses and makes travelers fall in love.
The North invites to stop, to go around with no hurry and to learn about the history of independence struggles, colonial and pre-Hispanic times. To discover the Andean culture and thanksgiving rituals to the Pachamama (Mother Earth). To cross valleys and ravines on horseback and to conquer the skies as birds do. And… to let oneself go by this typically northern magic.
The Argentine Northwest is a varied palette of colors and experiences. Culture, history, incredible landscapes, adventure, golf, trips and traditions. A destination to explore.
