Jujuy is one of Argentina’s most mesmerizing provinces. I invite you to explore it with me on this 5-day horseback riding adventure. Join me and let’s unveil all the beauty of Las Yungas, Quebrada de Humahuaca and Tilcara!

Quebrada de Humahuaca is a magnificent valley in northern Argentina. And within this fantastic place, there are other incredible things to see and do. What’s more, it has a very unique environment, surrounded by mountains of different shades and sizes, painting everything with a dazzling palette.

Then, aside from the natural beauty of this valley, it has also great cultural and economical importance. Due to its location, Quebrada de Humahuaca connects many of the towns in the area, including Tilcara. This wonderful place has served as a connecting road for people, ideas and culture for more than 10,000 years.

Tilcara is a charming town, that lies in the heart of Quebrada de Humahuaca. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site, famous for its indigenous traditions, which are still celebrated, along with the delicious regional food and welcoming people.

The journey I propose departs from Tilcara heading towards the jungle. Over a period of 5 days and 4 nights, we’ll cross the peaks that separates Quebrada de Humahuaca from Las Yungas. We’ll cross pre-incan paths and admire local houses right at the foot of the mountains. Also, we’ll get the most incredible sceneries on each day’s 7 to 8 hours of riding.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to explore some of Jujuy’s most beautiful places. Follow me on this 5-days traverse across the mountains in Quebrada de Humahuaca and into the jungle in Las Yungas.

About the Guide

 
 

AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I was born in Catamarca province, land of 6000m peaks (los seismiles), such as Pissis and Ojos del Salado.

I now live in Tilcara, Jujuy, located in the 'Quebrada de Humahuaca' a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I guide mountaineering, trekking, horse riding and multi adventure trips in Argentina's North and North-West region.

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.

What People are Saying about David A. Torres

 

I hired David Torres for a full-day mountain hike at least 2 months in advance. Without explanation or warning, he sent in his place a man with a recently broken ankle who uses a cane to walk! My entire day of \"hiking\" was a 3k slow walk on a flat trail. I have attempted to get a refund, but the company has refused to communicate with me. The replacement guide told me David had another trip at the same time as mine, and chose the other, more lucrative, trip.

The trip was amazing. The climb especially. Not being used to horse riding it was quite exhausting but overall we were very satisfied with how the day went.
