Cross this magical landscape, culminating in the grand highlight, the Salinas Grandes, the vast salt flat linking Salta and Jujuy.

This excursion begins in Salta and takes the road that follows the Train to the Clouds towards the canyon of Quebrada de los Toros. On the way, stop to visit Santa Rosa de Tastil and the village of San Antonio de Cobres, an Andean settlement sitting at an altitude of 3,776 metres above sea level.

After the break, this day tour from Salta will continue along Route 40 until it reaches the Salinas Grandes salt flats. Here you will have a chance to take unforgettable pictures of this memorable landscape straddling the provinces of Salta and Jujuy. After playing with perspectives on the giant white surface, you’ll find the Hill of Seven Colours. After sightseeing this multi-coloured geological gem of Jujuy, you’ll return to the city of Salta.
