Itinerary 1 day tour salt flats
Pick up at your hotel in Salta and drive south through the Lerma Valley then into the Quebrada del Toro closely following the route of the famous Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds). We pass the many viaducts, stations and tunnels that made this line a feat of engineering for its time, before arriving at San Antonio de Los Cobres mining town for lunch at a typical restaurant (not included). We continue across the deserted Puna at 4000 metres and arrive on the Salt Flats where we stop and walk around the piletas and shoot some salt flat special photos.
We drive down from high altitude along the snaking cuesta de Lipan, another engineering marvel, and into Purmamarca with a stop to see the 7-color hill and a visit to the plaza marketplace for local handicraft shopping. We then return to Salta City and your hotel at 19-20.00.
