Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Enjoy morning pickup at select Salta hotels; otherwise meet your guide and group at a centrally located point. Board an air-conditioned, 4x4 tour vehicle for the ride to El Rey National Park, located 125 miles (200km) outside the city limits.

Meet a park ranger at the entrance to El Rey National Park, and listen to a brief orientation to the area. Continue to the Popayan trailhead and set off into the rugged terrain, across streams and rivers that can only be forded by a 4x4 vehicle. 

Pause where the La Sala River and the Popayan River converge, where the clear waters allow to get a look at the marine inhabitants. Spot shads, gold fish, catfish and breams swimming in the pristine water, then explore the transition and Chaco forests before returning to the Popayan trailhead.

Take a break for lunch (please bring your own food), then head north to the Casacada of Lobito waterfall, a favorite hangout for the local otters. Journey through the mountainous jungle to Pozo Verde, where you can see the different vegetation that grows at higher elevations. Your guide will point out the tree species that can only thrive at higher elevations (here 4,953 feet/1,400 meters) such as Laurels and Cedars. Keep your camera poised for shots of bird species such as coots, kingfishers and herons or wildlife such as otters, peccary, tapir and the elusive puma.

Begin your journey back to Salta and end your tour with hotel drop-off.

Start your tour with pickup from your hotel by air-conditioned coach at 8am. Please note: a moderate amount of walking is required, so please wear comfortable walking shoes. Lunch, drinks, and optional gratuities are not included.
Stop At:  
El Rey National Park
Your adventure begins with a 125-mile 4x4 drive into El Rey National Park. Drive along the Popayan Trail (45 minutes), a road through the part that can only be navigated by 4x4 ue to the many stream and river crossings. Stop to enjoy the views of the Popayan and La Sala Rivers, keeping your eyes peeled for breams, catfish, gold fish, and shads that live within the waters. Return to the trail head, where you'll sit down for a box lunch (own expense) surrounded by the beauty of the national park. After lunch, head north into the mountain jungle, where you might spot one of the park's resident river otters. As you climb to higher elevations, notice how the vegetation begins to change, as varieties of flora that can only be found at high elevation, like cedars and laurels, begin to take over. Spend some time exploring the jungle habitat where wild pumas, tapir, wild pigs, and several species of birds roam.
