Landscapes, history, culture and wines.
Everyday will present constant changes, driving along three different canyons: the colorful "Quebrada de las Conchas, the amazing shaped "Quebrada de las Flechas" and the green and populated with cactus "Quebrada de Escoipe".
The traces of the old inhabitants will take us back in time, the altitude and dry weather will give us unique wines, and the soil will provide the most tasteful vegetables.
We will take our time to enjoy everycorner, and if you want to walk or bike under the clear blu sky that caractherises the area.
IMPORTANT! All the tours can be combined with the others or tailor made if you have special requests.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Graciela from Salta to Cachi, Cafayate and back to Salta. We had the perfect mix of sightseeing, cultural and local content and stops for photos and small hikes. Graciela's knowledge of the area and her easy going style made for an extremely enjoyable 3 days.
