Salta & the Northwest

Salta Holidays


Argentina's northwest offers travellers the chance of escaping to some of the country's most beguiling puna wilderness, together with some interesting provincial cities and exceptional wine-growing areas.

Salta is one of the main hubs in the Northwest region of Argentina and the capital of Salta province. Its crumbling colonial buildings and colourful past make it one of Argentina's most enticing cities to visit. Other highlights include Jujuy, the highest provincial capital in Argentina, as well as the city of Tucumán and the wineries around Cafayate - which are a great place to try some of Argentina's celebrated Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
