This two-week self-drive trip allows adventurous travellers the freedom to enjoy the rugged crimson scenery of the north.
Argentina’s arid north is a world away from the lush pastures of the central grasslands and the frosted mountains of the far south. Culturally too, this region is unique. Sharing traditions, local delicacies and indigenous languages with the peoples of neighbouring Bolivia and Chile, Salta and its surroundings are distinctly Andean. This exhilarating self-drive road trip will take you via impressive salt flats, ragged red mountains, fields of giant cacti and dusty northern vineyards. We can of course suggest the must-see highlights, but with the freedom of your hire car, each day can be whatever you make it. Sample the Torrontés white wines for which the region is famous, take breath-taking photos on the crystalline surface of the salt plains and relax during a charming luxury farm-stay. For those who would rather not self-drive we can organise a similar itinerary using a private guide and driver upon request.
