North West Argentina 7 days & 6 nights

Jump to last reply

Hi ...

Were flying into Salta in late January for 7 days and 6 nights an looking to explore the region. Weve had peek at the other forums and came up with this .. be great to get some advice/feedback :) Will this be rushed or will we have time to soak everything up & enjoy??

Day 1 : Arrive Salta midday. Pick up hire car & drive to Purmarca. Stay the night

Day 2: Explore Purmarca and then drive to Salt Flats in the afternoon. Drive back to Purmarca. Stay the night

Day 3: Head to Humahuaca & Tilcara - then hea back to Salta. Stay in Salta for the night

Day 4: Drive to Cafayate. Explore area & wineries. Stay Cafayate

Day 5; Cafayate.

Day 6: Cafayate.

Day 7: Drive back from Cafayate. Overnight bus to Mendoza

or possibly one day less in Cafayate and have a day/night in Salta??

Can anyone give us an idea of driving times?

Also as we'll be there in January will we need to book accommodation beforehand?

Thanks :)
