Embark on a self-drive from the Atacama desert into Argentina as you stop off to witness the stunning landscapes and cultures
Desert | History & culture | Mountains | Natural world | Off the beaten track
The parched deserts of Chile’s north provide the starting point for this four-day self-drive, which takes you across the border into Argentina’s mountainous northwest. Heading east across the Andes, you’ll visit the colourful creeks of Tolcara and the craft markets of Purmamarca, a town famed for its spectacular Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of Seven Colours). Next, you’ll spend two nights in Salta, whose impressive Basílica and San Francisco Church are just two examples of the city’s rich colonial past. Scratch the surface of its 400 year history on a free day before transferring to the airport for your onward flight. If you’ve time, perhaps extend your stay further with a visit to the lush vineyards and award-winning wineries in nearby Cafayate (not included).
