Lush green rainforests, high salt flats and vast open Altiplano

This tour is a wonderful introduction to the Andean Altiplano, or Puna, as the vast region below the High Andes in Salta is known. In Jujuy is located the Quebrada de Humahuaca (Humahuaca Canyon), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most amazing places of the Altiplano. The southern reaches of the Inca Trail once ran through here. It later became part of the Spanish Royal Road that stretched from Peru down to Salta and then to Buenos Aires in colonial times. YouÔøΩll intimately explore towns like Purmamarca and Iruya. Still have the traditional narrow, cobble-stoned streets and adobe homes. Still inhabited by the descendants of the once-mighty Inca. Below the Puna lie the Yungas.This is a long, thin belt of sub-tropical jungle coming north from Bolivia, fed by the waters of the High Andes. Lush, green rainforests with incredible varieties of plants and amazing birdlife. The contrast from the arid desert landscapes above, add much impact to this beautiful scenery. The region also provides an incredible setting for mountain biking, a marvelous way to deeply experience this amazing destination. Another opportunity to live our amazing country with great mountain biking, only as MTB Tours knows how to do!
