The Province of Salta is situated in the Northwest of Argentina and it borders three countries: Chile , Bolivia and Paraguay , and six Argentinian provinces: Jujuy , Formosa , Chaco, Santiago del Estero , Tucumán and Catamarca. Salta stands out for its geographic and climatic heterogeneity, from the desert coldness of the Andes and the Puna to the subtropical heat of the jungle, with cool fertile valleys, mountains and rivers in between. Salta 's traditional hospitality and provincial cordiality blend with its great cultural richness. Its heritage is vast and varied: ancient Diaguita-Calchaqui and Inca vestiges, the more recent Spanish colonial legacy and its active involvement in the independence wars. These features are still alive in the architecture of its villages, towns and in the city of Salta itself. The first people to live in this area were aware of its outstanding natural beauty and called it “SAGTA”, which in the Aymara language means “very beautiful one”. Even today Salta is known as “the pretty one”.Now we invite you to discover it for yourself.
Jujuy offers tourists a wide range of activities all through the year.

It is worth visiting, enjoying, and submerging into the whimsical harmony of the Puna region. Its desolate spectacular landscapes resembling the moon’s surface, and its vast salt mines convey unique sensations.
Lands full of history and traditions, most of which trace back to pre-Columbian times. Visitors can enjoy vivid celebrations, delicious wines and meals, and purchase fine llama wool clothing.
Stunning sites are a constant attraction for travelers and native residents. The exuberant vegetation and the crystalline river with several backwaters attract hundreds of people coming to camp and take pleasure in the lakes and dams.
In the summer and in the beginning of the autumn, the highland jungle is covered by clouds, and fleeting streams are scattered everywhere. People can access to the heart of the jungle and “feel" it from deep inside the dark paths.
