Explore the high valleys of northern Argentina when you take this fantastic trip from Purmamarca. You will visit the picturesque towns of Humahuaca and Iruya along the way.
Humahuaca and Iruya Trip
At 9 am, we will leave from your hotel in Purmamarca and head to the fascinating high altitude valleys of northern Argentina - one of South America's beautiful wilderness areas!
We will travel around 2.5 miles through a transitional environment between the desert and the Argentinean jungle. This is an area of complex geography and abundant resources. Along the way, will tell you how the ancient inhabitants harvested their own food on terraces that collected the water that descended the mountain slopes.
After learning about this original cultivation system, we will make a one-hour stop in the beautiful town of Humahuaca. Here, you can explore the beautiful colonial streets and browse the stalls of artisan products that are known all across the country.
From Humahuaca we will go to the Mirador del Condor lookout, where we will enjoy spectacular views. Then we head to another outstanding town in the north of Argentina: Iruya. In its beautiful historical center, we will visit the parish church, which is built on a hill from which you can enjoy a panorama of the whole municipality.
At the end of the tour of Iruya, you will have one hour free to enjoy the local gastronomy (not included). After lunch, we will return to your hotel in Purmamarca, where we will arrive at 6 pm.
