Northern Argentina is a perfect destination for holidays that combine culture with wildlife and contrasting landscapes. The parched deserts in Salta, fertile wetlands in Corrientes and Atlantic rainforest in Iguazu make an excellent trio in one trip or individually. Best visited between April and late August Northern Argentina is a fantastic option for a family summer holiday or a thrilling road trip for two.
Discover the charming boutique vineyards in Salta hidden in the surprisingly fertile valleys of this otherwise desert landscape pierced by forests of cactus plants. Salta is road-trip heaven. With a sturdy 4×4, you can traverse desert roads passing through canyons and river valleys, and drive for hours without seeing another soul. We love the boutique hotels in and around Salta City and if you are keen to combine Chile with Argentina, a drive over the Andes will take you to the lunar landscapes of the Atacama Desert.
