The Andes Plateau. The Atacama 'puna'. Land of volcanoes and salt flats.
Traveling through the North West is to feel the essence of Argentine soils, its colors, textures, scents and landscapes. Our senses will be stimulated to make the tour a unique and unforgettable one.
A sophisticated and ancient regional cuisine. Andean flavor and aromas. Dishes that always stand the test of time. High altitude wines. Young and talented chefs, born and raised in the highlands, who have come to rethink from a current standpoint how to enjoy good food with an emphasis on the regional traditions. An invitation to go touring restaurants on a motorcycle!
The heights, the silence, the vastness and the colours will immerse us in these magic Argentine roots. We will travel the line between past and present in one of the highest plateaus in the world, with an average height of 3,750 meters above sea level.
While the great Salinas Grandes will transport us to a unique feeling of freedom, the Yungas Forest will amaze us with the contrast of their deep and varied shades of green and the certainty that hide in the bushes, incredible animals such as tapirs, toucans, anteaters, monkeys or the magnificent jaguar will be watching for us.
Driving through ancient and narrow adobe villages, we will see, closely, half a dozen gigantic and active volcanoes.
Cafayate and Cachi, in the Calchaquí valleys. The Abra del Acay (Acay Pass) with its 5,000 meters abobe sea level. Sleeping in San Antonio de los Cobres, at 3,900 mts. A quick visit to the 'La Polvorilla' Viaduct, a masterpiece of the fifth highest railway in the world, the Train to the Clouds. The Obispo, Lipán, Sosa, and Portezuelo passes, with its thousands of turns and cliffs. The towns of 'La Quebrada de Humahuaca', inveterate witnesses of millennia of human civilization. So many turns. Good winding routes. Some gravel to test our capabilities. Adventure and friendship. All of this awaits us in the north. An unforgettable tour that never make us regret!
