The trip of a
Do you wonder what lies beyond busy Buenos Aires?
Make the most of your trip to Argentina by visiting the northern province of Jujuy, a region of striking natural beauty.
San Salvador de Jujuy has been Dante's home until the age of 21, when he moved to the UK. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that he will show you round, let you ride on his horses and experience the riches of his culture.
Dante is lending us his horses for a full day
at no extra cost. There will be one guide and a helper to make our journey in the mountains safer. Horse riding is optional; you can also stay and enjoy the hotel and its beautiful surroundings (we do require prior notice if you choose this option).
The famous Quebrada de Humahuaca was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2023. We will take you to the most remarkable sites, including the Salinas Grandes, the mountain of seven colours, and the gorgeous rural villages of Purmamarca and Tilcara.
You will spend two nights in a famous luxury hotel in the mountains, with access to a natural thermal bath and spa treatments at a small price.
You will spend each night in a private ensuite bedroom for your convenience.
The best empanadas
You will be greeted in the middle of the mountains with a fresh basket of the world's best empanadas.
Traditional Andean cuisine is exquisite: from bubbling stews to little parcels of corn and beef (humitas and tamales). Healthy, nourishing and plain delicious.
You will be greeted at Jujuy airport and taken to a beautiful luxury hotel in the mountains called Termas de Reyes, which offers natural thermal baths and a spa.
There will be a horse riding introduction session in the afternoon, and in the evening we will visit the city of San Salvador de Jujuy, eat delicious Andean food, and enjoy time relaxing in the hot thermal waters at the hotel.
Day 2 is a full day of horse riding! We have an incredible itinerary planned for you, with lunch provided. No horse-riding experience is required: our guides are there to give you full instruction and to help you for the duration of the journey. This is a truly unique experience at an extremely affordable price!
In the evening we will ride back to the hotel for a well deserved dinner, hot bath and a good sleep.
Should you decide not to take part in the horse riding excursion (this should be indicated in the booking form), you will stay at the hotel where you can enjoy the pool, walks in the mountain, and the many different spa treatments and facilities the hotel has to offer.
On day 3, we will leave the hotel and head to the famous Quebrada de Humahuaca, a Unesco world heritage site. The scenery is simply breathtaking: a must-see in South America! We will drive to Salinas Grandes (the salt lake), visit some local villages and walk around the 7 colour mountain! We will spend the night in a hotel in Tilcara.
We will continue our adventures in the Quebrada on day 4, before returning to San Salvador de Jujuy where we will sleep in a hotel in the city centre, ready to leave the next day.
