Discover the colourful landscapes, historic ruins and charming villages of northern Argentina on this tour of the Quebrada de Humahuaca from San Salvador de Jujuy.
Quebrada de Humahuaca Tour
After picking you up at 9 am from your hotel or the meeting point at Avenida Dr. Joaquin Carrill in San Salvador de Jujuy, we'll board a bus and set off to explore the Quebrada de Humahuaca.
Firstly, we'll head to Purmamarca, a village located at the foot of the famous Hill of the Seven Colours. Did you know that these striking multi-coloured rocks were formed over 500 million years? You'll be captivated by the sight of them!
Continuing on our tour to the small village of Maimará, we'll get to see the Paleta del Pintor, or "Painter's Palette", another impressive colourful mountain. After admiring this incredible geological formation, we'll visit the Pucará de Tilcara, an archaeological site home to a 12th century fortress built by the Omaguaca tribe.
We'll then make a stop in the quiet town of Uquía to see the famous paintings of the "Ángeles arcabuceros", angels depicted with arquebus firearms.
Before heading back to San Salvador de Jujuy, we'll visit the colourful city of Humahuaca, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll have an hour of free time to get your own lunch here and to explore at your leisure.
Afterwards, we'll meet back up and make our way back to the original departure point, where you'll be dropped off at 6 pm.
