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.
