Transfer to the hotel. City Tour (depending on the arrival time). Dinner and briefing.
After making contact with the motorcycles, we undertake a wide loop, leaving from and returning to Salta: 80 kms on pretty mule trails surrounded by scrubland vegetation, with river climbs.
Then we ascend to 3000 meters on “cerros”, or mountain peaks, where, with a little luck, we can observe condors! Then, a steep descent to Salta where we spend the night.
100 kms of rural roads passing by the house of Martin M. de Guemes (gaucho hero of Salta). Poorly maintained trails, enjoyable step with great views of the pre-Andean valleys.
We spend the night at the Hotel del Dique.

130 kms of paths and rural trails through hills up to 4000 meters, then we descend to arrive near Cafayate, with some asphalted road to finish. We spend the night in Cafayate (several hotels).
Lying against the foothills of the Cordillera at 1660 meters, Cafayate is surrounded by magnificent vineyards. This peaceful town attracts many tourists who come to admire its colonial architecture and drink its wine.
Guided tour of the vineyards, and an Argentinian “parilla” (traditional barbecue of the country’s famous meats).
160 kms of mule paths and the same sand trails used by the Dakar Rally. Then we climb mountains up to altitudes of 4000 meters, enduro more technical and varied!
We spend the night in Cachi, a pretty typical colonial village.
120 kms of very technical roads. Typical lunch with Andes Indians at 4000 meters, visit of an Andean school. Depending on the level of the participants, we opt for an easier ride. We spend the night in Quijano.
Wikiloc: Alfarcito-Capilla-Cachi-Cerro Black Apple Tree.
Fast Rolling trails back to Salta, ending with a rollercoaster-style loop over low hills. Lunch with the locals, who will prepare us a simple and authentic “asado típico”. Then, we end the tour in Saltat.
Based on the time of your return flight, departure for the Airport.
