Places in Salta & The Andean Northwest
Argentina’s second center for quality wine production, Cafayate is a popular tourist destination but still has a tranquil small-town feel. It’s spectacularly scenic, with the green of the vines backed by soaring mountains beyond, and is one of northwest Argentina’s most seductive destinations.
Jujuy & Salta Provinces
Intertwined like yin and yang, Argentina’s two northwestern provinces harbor an inspiring wealth of natural beauty and traditional culture. Bounded by Bolivia to the north and Chile to the west, the zone climbs from sweaty cloudforests westward to the puna (Andean highlands) and some of the most majestic peaks of the Andes cordillera.
Tucumán & Around
Though the country’s second-smallest province, Tucumán has played a significant role in Argentina’s story. It was here that independence was first declared, and the massive sugar industry is of great economic importance. Tucumán city is full of heat and energy, in complete contrast to the lung-cleansing air of Tafí del Valle, up in the hills to the west.
