Northern Argentina is part of a colorful, wind-sculpted, montane desert traversed by green river valleys. Slow-paced village life is enhanced by comfortable inns (many recycled from colonial structures), as well as delectable local cuisine and numerous wineries. All of this makes a leisurely drive through the valleys an unforgettable experience.
These are the least-seen places in Argentina. Most of the villages along the way sum up the history of the area in their archaeological and wine museums as well as in the workshops of local artists and artisans. Explore colorful villages, canyon lands, and valleys of outstanding beauty. Enjoy meeting friendly local people and take pleasure in the warm sunny days and cold nights sheltered in the most lovely hosterías and estancias.
