Full description
Start your day of nature exploration with a convenient pickup from your centrally-located hotel in Salta to be transferred to the beginning of your trail. The half-day option offers you a moderate-level 3-hour hike. Arrive at the ravine to climb paths that border the river, and gradually ascend on its slopes to reach different panoramic viewpoints, where you’ll get beautiful views of the city of Salta. Enjoy the vegetation of the yungas with epiphytic plants, climbers, and other spices typical of this biome.   If you choose the full day option, your hike will be 7 hours long at a more difficult level. Climb up the trails of La Quebrada to reach the mountains of Eastern Cordillera. Along the way, you’ll see imposing trees such as Ceibos, Nogales, Laureles, Cedars, Cebiles, Arrayanes, and Alders, among many others. You’ll pass lush ferns, epiphytic plans, and climbers characteristic of this biome. Catch amazing views of the Lerma Valley and Eastern Cordillera, reaching a height of almost 2400 meters. Enjoy a picnic lunchbox that includes water and fruit.

    We did the Half Day Trekking Tour instead of the full day option, which was due to bad organization by Nordic Travel. The tour itself was well organized and the guide (Cesar from San Lorenzo) was very good. He knew a lot about the place, mountains, animals and trees. It was a hot day so we had to stop once in a while but the speed of the walk was OK. We enjoyed the activity. Also, the pick-up by taxi in Salta went really smooth. Thank you, Cesar and Ricardo.

    Very nice trip. In the begining little bit difficult, because you need to climb up to the hill, but then the view are amazing. The local guide was perfect, even he did not speak english very good, we understand majority what he want to tell us.
