Hike the Inca trail in Argentina
Why take this tour?
This is a tough 7-9km hike through stunning and rugged high altitude scenery: suitable for the experienced and adventurous trekker! From Salta city, we travel to Campo Quijano, a town famous as the base for workers constructing the Train to the Clouds railway line to the Chilean coast. We can stop to see an antique engine and the mausoleum of the train line's chief engineer, Richard Maury, from Philadephia, USA. From here we will climb into the stunning multi-coloured Quebrada de Toro, crossing rivers and driving off road through canyons to reach San Bernardo de las Zorras, where our hike begins. It's two hours travel each way: the walk takes between 4 and 5 hours. Our guide is experienced in hiking all terrain, and speaks English and Spanish. Picnic lunch provided.
