Hike The Inca Trail In Argentina - Salta

Overview

This is a tough 7-9km hike through stunning and rugged high altitude scenery: suitable for the experienced and adventurous trekker! We travel up into the multi-coloured canyon of the Quebrada de Toro to walk a little-explored section of Argentina's Inca trail. The route is scattered with Inca ruins from more than 500 years ago.8 to 10 hour round trip.

Details about this tour

Pick-up at your hotel: from here, we travel to Campo Quijano, a town famous as the base for workers constructing the Train to the Clouds railway line to Chile. We can stop to see an antique railway engine and the mausoleum of the train line's chief engineer, Richard Maury, from Philadephia, USA.

Next we enter the stunning, multi-coloured Quebrada de Toro. We take a turn across a river across rugged and remote scenery to the start of this section of the Inca trail. We can take a walk of between 7 and 9km over three to five hours, with a picnic lunch.
It's a very rough path, which sometimes disappears completely, so is quite a challenging trek: but although it's high altitude (over 3,000m above sea level), the gradient is fairly consistent without too many steep climbs.
Of course, this hike can be completely tailored to your needs, so we can do less walking and more appreciation of the scenery.
As an alternative to the hike, we can instead visit the pre-Inca ruins of Tastil nearby.

Snacks and water are provided.

We recommend long trousers, long sleeved tops and sunhats: hiking boots or strong training shoes.

Return to Salta approx 6pm (it's roughly a 10 hour day, but can be tailored to your needs).
