Excursion to Humahuaca Canyon - Full Day

After pickup at your hotel in Salta, we will start a wonderful excursion to the Humahuaca Canyon, when culture and colorful landscapes are the vedette. We start with a 2-hour drive to valley called Quebrada de Humahuaca. Through your guide’s commentary, learn about how the Incas once used this gorge as a caravan road and later as a commercial route during the colonial period.

It´s a great chance to take a wonderful and unforgettable picture. Stroll through the streets of the small village, visiting the small church and handicrafts at the local market.

After a stop, we continue to Tilcara, where you will visit the archaeological museum and the town square. First, stop at a scenic viewpoint on the way into town to see some pre-Incan ruins.
