Why Visit Salta in Argentina?
"The remote North West of Argentina is an area of staggering beauty with traditional indigenous towns, cactus studded landscapes and few other tourists."
Salta refers both to the colonial city located in the Lerma Valley and the wider province of the same name in the North Western corner of Argentina. A lesser visited area, this remote region is full of blood red gorges, arid desert landscapes, alien rock formations, ethereal salt flats, high altitude vineyards, old mining settlements and wide open roads. The city of Salta itself is a charming colonial town originally founded by Hernando de Lerma, the Spanish conquistador, in 1582. A fantastic area for self drive and getting off the beaten track!
