From empanadas salteñas to balancing on a highline - 4 seasons in Salta, Argentina

My trip was in Salta, northern Argentina. A province where all year round one can hike, climb, practice highline, search for rivers and waterfalls, meet friendly travellers and try out local wine.

Highs & Lows

Climbing at the Laguna de Brealito and going on a highline for the first time were by far my favorite activities in Salta.

Very hot and dry summers. Important to always have water, a hat and enjoy the "ciestas" under a tranquil tree.

Q & A

  • How was the food?

    Try out the empanadas salteñas from La Casa de las Empanadas in Cafayate, Salta.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Be open to meeting people at the main squares. The squares are ususally the center of small towns, where there are lots of people gathered, music, dancing, sports and food around. Don't be shy in approaching others and making new friends. Lots of great adventures can come from a friendly "Hello".

  • Transportation Tips?

    Hitchhiking is fairly easy in Argentina and a good opportunity to get to know people and get insights on places to visit.
