Quebrada De Las Conchas Hiking from Cafayate

Summary

After being picked up from your central Cafayate hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 8 people, and set off on the short journey to the Quebrada de las Conchas reservation. Keep your camera close to hand as you wind your way along the Río de las Conchas, into the heart of the canyon, then catch your first glimpse of the reserve’s dramatic multi-colored cliffs. Set out to view some of the reservation’s most memorable landmarks, combining short periods of hiking, with sections traveled by vehicle. Pause to admire the imposing Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) and the aptly nicknamed Anfiteatro (Amphitheater), as your guide explains the region’s unique geology, sculpted over millions of years. Continue to La Punilla, where the unusual rock formations offer ample photo opportunities; Los Castillos (the Castles), where the striking red rocks are reminiscent of a castle; and La Yesera, renowned for its fish fossils. After around three hours exploring the extraordinary landscapes, return to Cafayate, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
