Quebrada de Humahuaca Day Trip

We'll pick you up between 6:30 am and 7:10 am from your hotel or the meeting point and set off for the beautiful town of Purmamarca, meaning "city of the desert" in the Aymara language. Our first stop will be at the Cerro de los Siete Colores hill, whose dazzling colours will take your breath away!

The route will continue to Maimará, a small town located next to the beautiful natural landscape of the Paleta del Pintor, meaning "Palette of the Painter". You'll marvel at its red, yellow, orange and pastel tones, and it makes for a great photo!

Afterwards, we'll make our way to Pucará de Tilcara: an indigenous archaeological site that houses the remains of an ancient fortress. We'll also find out about a curious curse related to the Argentinean Football Team!

Next we'll head to the Iglesia de San Francisco de Paula church, in Uquía, where we'll admire the extraordinary paintings of the Harquebusier Angels, which date back to the Hispanic period. The tour will then continue along the Tropic of Capricorn to the famous Quebrada de Humahuaca, a spectacular mountain valley.

Lastly we'll visit Humahuaca, the largest city in the gorge. We'll explore its historic centre, declared a World Heritage Site, and admire the great Monument to the Heroes of Independence. You'll have some free time here for lunch so you can taste the incredible gastronomy of Jujuy.

At the end of the trip we'll return to Salta, arriving by around 7:30 pm.
