Arrival in Salta
Salta lies in the green hills of the Lerma valley at 1280m altitude and the flight into the tiny airport is incredibly scenic. When you arrive, you’ll be collected at the airport and transferred to your colonial hotel in the heart of Salta. The hotel is cosy and welcoming, with just 20 rooms and a panoramic patio. The rest of the day is totally free, so wander through the cobbled streets, snack on steaming empanadas and soak up the atmosphere. The central plaza is wonderfully romantic, especially in the evening.
Salta - Full Day Gaucho Experience
This morning, you’ll be transferred from Salta to a working ranch in nearby Chicoana. You’ll be offered a traditional breakfast before mounting your horse and riding from the historical square of Chicoana into the sweeping tobacco plantations, flanked by mountains on all sides. It’s sure to give you a real sense of freedom.
Next, you’ll journey to the Estancia Sayta where a sizzling BBQ will be prepared for you. After the BBQ, your guide will play folkloric Argentinian music on his guitar. It’s a wonderful way to spend the evening. Afterwards, you’ll travel back to your hotel in Salta.
Departure from Salta
Your trip ends after breakfast this morning and it’s time to wave goodbye and carry on your adventure in Argentina. If you’d like to truly live like a Gaucho, we can arrange for you to spend the night at the ranch rather than in Salta. If you choose to stay the night then afternoon tea and dinner will included during your stay.

Upgrade to our In Style accommodation
If you’d like a bit more style during your Salta trip we can arrange for you to stay in a colonial hotel just round the corner from the main square. This comfortable property was a former 1950s Spanish Mansion and is full of character, with colonial furniture and features. Plenty of attention has been given to the design and details, thereby keeping its colonial charm. On the roof terrace you can enjoy the view or take a refreshing dip in the hotel’s pool. The rooms are spacious and neat but casually decorated, making you feel more at home.
