Slopes run rusty red above the horizon. Ochre hues meet scorched orange and a multitude of other red tones. This is a seven-colour hill and it’s just one in the area around Humahuaca, a blissful town in Argentina’s Andes.
Traveling to Humahuaca is part of the fun, as you bounce around in a four-wheel drive, passing vineyards and cute settlements. The scenery is like something from the apocalypse, as cacti soar above desert escarpments.
The town itself is something from a dream, an ethereal Andean hideout where you can forget the rest of the world exists. This is remote Argentina and you’ll have a private guide tailoring every moment to your interests.
