Description

Quebrada de Humahuaca is a majestic valley in the argentinean province of Jujuy, at the north part of the country. Let me show you its most impressive parts on this 3-day horseback riding trip.

On this journey we will explore this marvellous mountainous valley. We’ll get to admire the Puna’s plateau that surround it. And we’ll learn about the great cultural significance this places holds. Quebrada de Humahuaca is representative of the wonderful valleys in the South Andes. So, by exploring it we’ll get the chance to peek into the Andean magical world.

Moreover, it served as a major trade route over the past 10,000 years. Hence, there are vestiges of settlements all throughout the valley. Even today, it is a crucial path for transportation and connectivity between the different towns, from the plains to the highlands of the Andes.

Allow me to guide you across this dazzling place, and show you some of my favorite spots. We’ll depart from Caballos towards Huacalera. Then, we’ll pass by the Valleys of Loma Larga, Molulo, Huaiahuasi and Molulo. Each one guards its own secrets and incredible places to discover.

Our journey will take 3 days and 2 nights, crossing the mountain range that separates the Quebrada de Humahuaca and the Valleys. We’ll also reach archaeological pre-incan sites, right at the feet of the mountains. Plus, we’ll admire the most hypnotizing sceneries on our 6-7 hours per day riding.

Don’t miss out this great opportunity to discover one of the most breathtaking places in Argentina. Request to book this trip and follow me on this horseback riding adventure across Quebrada de Humahuaca.

I had a mindblown experience riding in the mountains for 3 days in Juyjuy, or should I say horseback mountain climbing. I do have previous experience with horseback riding, but I have never done anything compared to this. Mesmerizing views, primitive overnight stays and food in the nature. I was also allowed to book very last minute, resulting in me being alone in the mountains with a guide. This tour is an experience that I will take with me fondly for life. My communication with David was good. My guide on the journey, Gonzalo, was very shy and timid. He only answered questions and did not explain to me the areas we were riding through. Something that I would have appreciated. This is also a very Argentinian experience in the sense that they sent an itinerary that was not exactly followed, and they were not punctual on time. If you have a relaxed view upon things like these, you will have an amazing time. Living here, I have come to learn that this is very Argentinian, so you also get a cultural experience. On the plus side, here, everything has a solution. The only thing, as an urbanized European, I would have highly appreciated, is that they bring a satellite telephone (mentioned in the itinerary) and a primitive first aid kit (mentioned during the briefing), that they did not. I do understand that they know these mountains like the back of their hands. But I do not, if something would have happened. I did feel safe during the tour. All in all, I highly recommend this tour, while ensuring that important things to me are brought on the trip.
