Trundle into the wilderness on the historic Tren a las Nubes. Vivid rocks shimmer red and ochre as you ascend above the clouds. Llamas dot the stark valley and viaducts evoke a forgotten time.
It’s South America’s most remarkable train line, so sit back and enjoy nature’s show. Then return to Salta via Argentina’s salt flats. Although not as big as those in Bolivia, they’re still mightily impressive. Gaze across the mirage, wander the blinding white, and find your own patterns in the salt.
This is a privately-guided day trip from Salta, combining the region’s two most iconic experiences.
