Salta is subdivided in four well-defined areas, from west to east: Subregión de la Puna, Cordillera Oriental, Sierras Subandinas and Llanura Chaqueña. Each region has a different and unique landscape.

Tourist Attractions:

La Quebrada de las Conchas - Cafayate

On our way to Cafayate we will drive through Las Conchas Creek, then we´ll come onto some rock formations that have quite unusual shapes like “The Castles”, “The Amphitheatre”, “The Devil´s Throat”, “The Obelisk”, and others. During this very interesting itinerary we will also visit some vineyards.
