Acsibi Caves
1 Tour and Activity

Tucked in the Calchaquíes Valley lie a series of caves carved by Mother Nature from the red sandstone of the area. Accessible only on foot, the caves were formed thousands of years ago and are famous for their unusual formations and for the light that filters through gaps in its ceiling, creating an abstract vision of shape and shadow. The trek to the caves begins near the mouth of a canyon along the River Montenieva. As the trail climbs, the canyon narrows and the trees and cacti begin to disappear. The otherworldly landscape — dotted with historic landmarks from the ancient civilizations that once lived in the area — culminates at the caves, made all the more impressive by their secluded location.

Bodega Domingo Hermanos
1 Tour and Activity

Bodega Domingo Hermanos began producing wines in the 1960s, taking advantage of the high-altitude conditions of Salta. Today, the winery has a tank capacity of 1.6 million gallons (6 million liters). The altitude — about 5,500 feet (1,700 meters) — creates excellent conditions for growing Torrontés grapes, a varietal for which Bodega Domingo Hermanos is famous. Tours of the production facilities give visitors an insight into a more traditional method of wine making, and the table wines available for purchase at the bodega are among the best in the region.
