      About this Salta tour

      Whoever said that getting there is half the fun could easily have been talking about this visit to Cafayate. The first part of the journey takes you through verdant mountain valleys and peaceful villages. But about halfway through, everything changes.

      As you reach the Las Conchas Gorge, the green countryside gives way to multicolored mountains and salmon-hued rock formations that beckon you to stop and inspect more closely. One looks like a train, another is an obelisk, still another makes you think you've arrived at the gates of a medieval European castle, only set in a far more arid landscape.

      After passing through this rugged dreamscape, we'll arrive in the scenic and quiet town of Cafayate for the perfect complement to the visual feast you've just experienced: a tribute to the palate that includes a tasting of the phenomenal wines of the region – and a typical Argentine lunch at a local restaurant.

      The Torrontes grape creates a wine with the sweet aroma of roses and jasmine, but a taste that's surprisingly dry – fruity, with a touch of honey and just the right amount of acidity, all of which comes together perfectly.

      Natural beauty, unique rock formations, good food, and wine. This is the day that awaits you. And if getting there is half the fun, the trip back is an added bonus.

      And if it's a sore throat, you might also hear a cough

      One of the most popular rock formations in the area sinks eerily into the ground rather than rise above it. Part ravine, part cave, this giant opening is somewhat chillingly called La Garganta del Diablo: the Devil's Throat. The name may come from the reddish rock of the entrance, or from the fact that, if everything is quiet, you can hear wind, as if someone down there is breathing.
