Transformational travel: experience by going deep into a region, disconnecting from noise and reconnecting with nature

This trip is designed to allow you to experience the four distinct regions of NW Argentina: the Yungas (montane forest), the temperate valleys, high dry valleys, and the Puna or Altiplano; learning about the people that inhabit each area.

This is a truly responsible trip, designed to support grassroots projects that need the income travelers can provide. You will have six days to explore 1,300 km in 4x4s, on a bike, on a horse and on foot. Visit the archetypal regions in NW Argentina, go off the beaten path (really) and discover the magnificent Andes’ geography and
