Salta and the northwest of Argentina have more in common with the Quechan cultures of Bolivia and Peru than with the rest of the country. Its society and traditions are unmatched in the region, contrasting dramatically with Argentina’s European south and incredibly metropolitan capital, Buenos Aires.
From the Andes, the landscape rolls east in a patchwork of immense gorges and spectacular rock formations. Mountain roads roam through desert and cactus forests, subtropical jungle and lush valleys dotted with sugarcane and tobacco plantations.
The region is also home to the world’s highest altitude vineyards (the highest at 2.490ms), and some fabulous wineries like those of Cafayate. We include in our portfolio a selection of the most remarkable properties, among them a private working estancia, a luxury wine lodge, a romantic boutique and a 400-year-old family-run working farm.
From Colome to Kachi to Humahuaca, the collection of small galleries and regional archaeological museums that Salta boasts is impressive. All the more spectacular because they remain off the beaten path yet utterly exclusive with installations like the James Turrell Museum in Colome.
