Mountains, colours, sun, and wine.


To deserve the famous torrontes wine, we should cross the amazing gorge called "Quebrada de las Conchas". This unique landscape is formed by sandstone red rocks that the wind took thousands years to shape.
Once in Cafayate, we will have lunch in one of the local winneries, together with one of their excellent wines.
In the afternoon, on our way back to Salta, we may add a 2 hours walk to discover the beauty of the sunset lighting the mountains.
