Get a taste of the incredible wonders that the Argentine Northwest has to offer:

  • Hike across unforgettable landscapes such as the exuberant jungle of Yungas with dense natural trails, rivers and unique wildlife that loom behind every bush, and Talampaya canyon, where you can discover the millenary secrets of the geological wonders that await, including fortresses from the Incaico period and historic colonial chapels.

  • Delve into the vibrant artistic scene of the region, groove to the upbeat traditional music, indulge in the plethora of diverse and flavorful dishes, and savor the highly-praised wines of the local vineyards.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
