This unique journey takes you to the hidden north-western corner of Argentina on a private exploration by 4WD, the only way to explore the furthest reaches of this unique environment. The high altiplano and desert valleys of the Puna run west and north of Salta towards the Andes, eventually veering down into the Atacama Desert, characterised by striking open vistas, rocky canyons and dotted with traditional local communities and villages, a far cry from urban life.
Begin with a short stay in Buenos Aires before heading to Salta to meet your guide and vehicle for your off-road adventure through canyons, gorges, desert valleys and lush vineyards. You are at altitude for much of your time here, maximum 4,500 metres which can take a little while to acclimatise to and it is important to keep warm (desert nights are cold) and hydrated. The accommodation on the Puna is very simple rustic lodging for a few nights but the rewards of this off-road adventure are the magnificent landscapes and friendly local people you will meet.
