Tour description provided by Viator

A gentle morning hike through the sub-tropical scenery of the Cloud Forest: this short expedition of three hours in the Yungas is suitable for all. We trek in San Lorenzo, a lovely spot only a few km from Salta city, and the traditional summer retreat to cooler climes. Our guide is experienced in hiking all terrain, and speaks English and Spanish.
Pick-up at your hotel between 8.30am and 9.30am: from here, we travel the short distance to the Quebrada de San Lorenzo where our hike begins. The hike is around 5km long, though we can tailor it to your needs if you’d like a shorter or longer excursion. We will explore the landscape of Selva Montana, part of the Yungas (quechua for warm valley)  of north west Argentina.   This hike offers some gorgeous views of the Valle de Lerma and Salta city and is a great way to relax and blow away the cobwebs after arriving in the area. This is a privately-guided tour with a maximum group of four people. We will drop you off at your hotel after the walk, or you can stay to enjoy lunch at one of the many excellent restaurants in San Lorenzo.Snacks and water are provided.We recommend long trousers, long sleeved tops and sunhats: hiking boots or strong training shoes.
