Description

Join me on a fantastic trip to the colorful Jujuy province in Argentina. On this 4-day trip through Las Yungas, the subtropical jungle of Calilegua National Park, we’ll discover varied vegetation, stunning views and the warmth of the local people.

This historic hiking trail in the Calilegua National Park will take us through some wonderful places in the Argentine pre-Andes. Some of these places include San Francisco, Peña Alta, San Lucas, Santa Bárbara, Valle Grande River, San Lucas River and many others. You can check the itinerary below for more information. However, keep in mind it may change depending on weather conditions and the group’s pace.

Additionally, keep in mind that for this trip you will need to bring comfortable and warm clothes for hiking, hiking boots, sandals, two hats (one for the sun and one for the cold), a waterproof jacket, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottles, a sleeping bag, thermal insulation, personal hygiene bag and walking sticks. Also take into consideration that you will need to be physically fit for this excursion.  Of course, I’ll be happy to help you with anything you may need.

Are you are ready to discover the amazing landscapes of Jujuy in Argentina? If you are up for this 4-day adventure, then send your request. I would love to guide you.

I also offer other fun hiking opportunities in the Argentine Northwest. If you are looking for more options, be sure to check out the ones I offer to Cerro Naranjo, Nevado de Chañi, Tuzgle Volcano and others.

When guiding, my objective is to provide confidence and safety to my clients, and by the end of the trip to say goodbye as friends.
