Jujuy is a marvellous province in northern Argentina. And one of the best ways to explore it is horseback riding across three of its most beautiful parts: Tilcara, Maimara and Garganta del Diablo.

Tilcara, is an enchanting town in the valley of Quebrada de Humahuaca, deep in the mountains of northern Argentina. This UNESCO World Heritage site, has a huge cultural significance, with indigenous traditions still alive and celebrated, exquisite food, live music and lovely people.

The Garganta del Diablo is only 7 kilometers outside the city of Tilcara. This dazzling rocky formation is one of the most iconic destinations in Jujuy. We’ll get to ride along this gorge, created by the Huasamayo river to forge its way through the mountains. Also, it offers the unique opportunity to visit its dazzling 15 meters waterfall. Morever, it has privileged views of the Nevado del Chañi and the Quebrada de Humahuaca. What’s more, it’s the perfect location for birdwatching. So keep your eyes open and get the camera ready!

Finally, Maimara is only 5 kilometers outside of Tilcara. This intriguing place still guards many secrets and traditions of the Maimará and Tilcara indigenous people. In fact, its name means falling start in the Maimará language. So when you get the opportunity to explore its streets, it is easy to understand why. This small and picturesque town in the Humahuaca Ravine is surrounded by mountains that seem as if a painter had brushed each one of them with a unique palette. And it is indeed the nickname these peaks receive: the Painter’s Palette.
