If you can endure a harrowing five-hour, 50-km (31-mi) ride east from Humahuaca on an unpaved cliffside road, you'll be rewarded with one of Argentina's most stunning settings. (Take the bus from Humahuaca rather than driving yourself; you really have to know the road, as the bus drivers do, to negotiate it safely.) This cobblestoned town, which clings to sheer rock, is becoming an increasingly popular stop. It has just one 15-room hotel, the Hosteria de Iruya (3887/482–002), but many villagers offer rooms for rent. The busiest times to visit are during the first and second weekends in October, when the village celebrates its festival, and at Easter. There are some good hikes from Iruya to even more remote towns like San Isidro, three hours away through the mountains. For more information and guide recommendations, call Arminda Monteyano at the Tourist Office (3887/482–001).
