Departure Time

6:30 AM
Your full-day adventure begins with an early morning pick-up from your central Salta hotel. Admire the scenery as you drive north, winding along the Rio Grande, and climbing through the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Get a glimpse of local life as you pass through the sleepy villages of Yala, Volcan, and Tumbaya, and enjoy plenty of stops to take in the views and snap photos.

Arrive in the lively village of Purmamarca, famous for its daily handicrafts market and its spectacular backdrop, in the shadows of the Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of Seven Colors). Stand in awe before the multi-hued peaks, then continue to nearby Tilcara, where you’ll have time to explore the restored ruins of Pucará, a pre-Inca fortification.

After making a stop in Uquía to visit its 17th-century church, famously home to a series of nine ‘Arcabuceros Angels’ paintings, arrive in Humahuaca in time for lunch (own expense). After lunch, spend some time admiring Humahuaca’s landmarks, including the historic church and Soto Avendaño’s Independence Monument, then return to Salta along the scenic La Paleta del Pintor (The Paintor's Palette) route.

Back in Salta, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

We saw the painted mountains-period

This was a good tour and hit the highlights. It was a typical tour where you’re dropped off and have to walk past all of the little shops or are dumped in front of a particular restaurant. We walked away from everyone and found much more interesting things. Our guide did not have very good English nor did she describe many of our surroundings on the long drive there. We did see what we’d come to see though and Viator made it easy.

Great tour. I also did the Cachi...

Great tour. I also did the Cachi tour the day before, so had the same guide. He spoke good English and I sat at the front so he could provide the commentary to me in English after he had done it in Spanish. It would have been better if the admission to Picard de Tilcara was included in the price of the tour. The lunch spot where we stopped in Humahuaca was not great, but the guide did make a point of saying it was optional to eat there. The scenery is fantastic and the towns really provide the essential sense of history and culture. really are amazing cult

Escursione nei villaggi andini

L’escursione merita la pena per i posti visitati. La collina dei sette colori a Pumamarca e soprattutto Huamamaca e la relativa quebrada. Il sito di Tilcara molto affascinante. Tuttavia forse avrei preferito avere un po’ più di tempo per vedere il sito di Tilcara ed avrei evitato la tappa di visita con workshop della ceramica. Inoltre il nostro accompagnatore non proprio attento alle esigenze di tutto il gruppo
