- The Quebrada In this vast, mountainous, color-splashed landscape, gaze up at an eternity of stars or the otherworldly carved walls of the gorge.
- Sports and the Outdoors Rivers deep, mountains high, valleys, lakes, and plains all play their part in tempting the adventurous to hike, ride, raft, fish, and rock climb. Take a spin in a kite buggy on the Salinas Grandes or try trekking with a llama.
- Folk Music Dive into the fabled Argentine folk scene by spending a night out at one of Salta's peñas (halls of food, music, and dancing). Wind instruments, diverse percussion, and soaring harmonies define the evocative high-Andean soundtrack.
- Wine Vintners from the Northwest—especially the Cafayate region of Salta—are gaining worldwide recognition for their cépages grown at great heights. The area is part of Argentina’s Wine Trail and offers ample touring opportunities for oenophiles.
