Salta Tour - Salta to Cafayate

Day 1

sunny 24 °C

We decided with the parents to go to the North Ouest to visit the beautiful provinces of Salta and Jujuy...so we took a flight to Salta...and stayed in the nice Antiguo Convento hotel..

We were lucky enough to have a guide for ourselves with a 4 wheel drive truck which we understood why during the first day...The first day program was to go south of Salta via Cachi, then take a drive in the Valleys of Calchaquies and stay the night in Cafayate... The road was awesome, apart from the fact that due to the rain most of the roads were washed under the mud. Some houses were under the mud too!!!
