Advise re travel itinerary in north west argentina

by raandaka

My husband and I are planning a trip to Argentina later in the year and will be flying into Salta and out of La Roija with 12 days in between. I am looking for advice / recommendations to help build a rough itinerary re the top places to go in the north west of Argentina, recommended time frames in these places and how best to get there - eg car hire, local buses, locally arranged tours?
Many thanks.

If you want to visit Jujuy:
From Salta city, you can take the Balut Bus up to the city of Humahuaca (staying 2 days is enough). Then you can take the bus to Iruya (1 or 2 days). Then go back to Humahuaca and from there to Tilcara (1-2 days), then to Purmamarca (1 full day). And from there, to Salta city. And you have at least 4 days to visit the Province (Cafayate, San Lorenzo, or better to take 3 whole-day tours.

Humahuaca is wonderful, unfortunatelly I did not covered it in my photo´s page. If you plan to visit La Rioja do not miss Talampaya. Not too far is Valle de la Luna or Ischisgualasto.

You may found a video in my page. While the site is in Spanish, you only may go clicking into maps most of the time.

Travel Tips for Purmamarca

The backroad to Chile

by barryg23

Beyond Purmamarca the road climbs steeply through the remote highlands to the Chilean border pass at Paso de Jama (4230m). Four months after first visiting Purmamarca, we did this journey in reverse, from San Pedro de Atacama in Chile all the way down to Salta, before we turned north again for Bolivia.

The scenery along the way was spectacular, but the journey took far longer than planned as our bus broke down near the border and we had to wait 5 hours for a replacement. We stopped for dinner at a hostel in the remote town of Susques, then passed by the beautiful Salinas Grandes (Salt flats) close to midnight. Even at night the whiteness of the salt flats made them visible in the darkness. This would be a great journey to do by day should you have the time.

Purmamarca and the seven coloured mountain

by barryg23

Purmamarca is a small village along the Quebrada de Humahuaca in north west Argentina.

It's famous for its location below the striking and beautiful Cerro de los Siete Colores (Seven Coloured Mountain), and as one of the nearest Quebrada towns to Jujuy city, there is no shortage of visitors to Purmamarca.

The seven-coloured mountain is best seen from Cerro Verde, a hill opposite the town, from where the main picture on this page was taken. And it more than lives up to its name - I reckon there are far more than seven colours visible.

The beauty is not just restricted to Purmamarca and its seven coloured hill as the whole area is full of stunning colours and panoramas. Most people arrive at Purmamarca by bus, but a nicer way to do it is by bicycle. If you stay in Tilcara, as we did, you can rent bikes and travel 25km south to Purmamarca along a road that passes some of the most impressive scenery in Argentina.

Other than the seven coloured hill, in Purmamarca you can appreciate the 17th century church and the ancient algarrobo tree in the church grounds. Or walk the 3km Paseo de los Colorades, a circular path around the seven coloured mountains. Or explore the local market on the main square. All in all, Purmamarca is a great place to visit, a part of Argentina that I knew little about before I visited, but a part which I consider amongst my favourites.

Peaceful and colorful Purmamarca

by anabelsousa

This little town is one of the most beatiful ones in the norhtern Argentina.
I was lucky of being there on sunday, when they do a popular fair in the main square...
Respirar el aire de Purmamarca y tener la posibilidad de caminar por ese suelo, sintiendo la inmensidad y belleza de ese paisaje son cosas que no pueden describirse en pocas palabras....
