One of Noroeste jewels, an absolute must do - at the beginning or end of the day with softer lights on the mountains. An incredible experience. Do not think it is "another quebrada", one of the numerous in the Noroeste. This one really deserve a...More

The scenery was spectacular. The geoforms throughout the valley are so amazing and beautiful. We made every suggested stops along the route and took way too many pictures. Highly recommend.

If you are in the Salta region of northwest Argentina the drive to Cafayate through the UNESCO World Heritage listed Quebrada del Rio de las Conchas is unmissable. Breathtakingly beautiful. Unforgettable.

we visited the Cafajate region as part of our Circuito Andenes. This canyon (quebrada) is beautiful with various , dramatic rock formations. The afternoon sunset painted it in soft and very nice variations of the original rock colors. A nice and not difficult walk through...More

Your tour will be incomplete if you don’t drive through here while visiting Salta province. The landscapes are captivating. I’m glad we had a tour guide to drive us so we could both enjoy the vistas unfolding before us!

One thing you have got to do is take a drive along here, absolutely no doubt about it. At each corner, at each turn, the views just get more breath-taking than the one you may just have passed. Loads of places to stop and take...More

This Quebrada is absolutely beautiful. Very similar to some places in Utah or Arizona but with its own characteristics. Everybody talks about Humahuaca but I think this one is even more beautiful.

What a beautiful place! Absolute natural beauty! So much to see with ever changing surroundings at small distances. Very recommendable if you plan to visit the north of Argentina

We really enjoyed this route that took us through wonderful, natural sandstone landscapes as well as specific phenomena such as the ‘windows’ and the ‘amphitheatre’. Also interesting to see the seam of sea shells (from a distance) that unlocked the history of this amazing panorama....More
