Bonjour à tous, Aujourd'hui je suis retombé dans le plus classique, la visite de Salta. Salta, est la capitale de la province du même nom. Située, dans le nord ouest montagneux de l'Argentine, au pied de la cordillère des Andes, à 1150m d'altitude, sa population est de 62000 habitants, l'agglomération 535000, 8ème ville du pays . Elle est connue pour son architecture coloniale espagnole et andine, la mieux préservée d'Argentine. C'est un important centre touristique, elle est surnommée "Salta la Belle", elle est au centre d'une importante région agricole: maïs, tabac, céréales, canne à sucre, exporté entre autre vers l'Europe. L'église San Francisco est un des plus beaux édifices religieux d'Argentine. La cathédrale de Salta du XiX siècle est inscrite au monument historique nationale. Hier au soir rendez vous était pris pour restituer la voiture à ... read more

Bonjour à tous, Tout d'abord merci à ceux qui me passent des messages d'encouragements. Hier je pensais avoir battu le record de photos publiées, 50, non il y à eu le lac Powell dans l'Utah en 2016 avec 56. Depuis que je suis en Argentine, j'ai dû passer une bonne nuit. De partout, et hier ça été le pire, des chiens aboient toute la nuit, A 1H lorsque ça se calme, se sont les gens qui rentrent, évidemment ils sortent souper après 10 heure. C'est aussi pour ça que ce matin j'étais seul au petit dèj. A 9H quand je suis parti je n'ai vu personne. Ce matin, je reprends la route pour Salta, où j'étais avant hier, où j'ai pris la voiture. Je ne m'attends pas à une journée, aussi exceptionnelle que les deux dernières. ... read more

Bonjour à tous, Aujourd'hui changement de région je viens de remonter de 3000km vers le nord de l'Argentine. Cela aurait été parfait si il y avait eu un vol direct El Calafate - Salta, il faut transiter par Buenos Aires. 3 heures de vol dans un premier temps et ensuite 2h, plus l'escale, soit Un petit mot sur ces premiers 10 jours. Après la ville d'Ushuaia très touristique, El Calafate l'est tout autant, mais la ville elle même est probablement plus pauvre, il me semble que c'est une ville en pleine expansion. A part la rue centrale, très propre, les rues adjacentes sont en terre, la propreté sur les bas côté laisse à désiré, ce n'est pas l'Albanie non plus. Les villas sont parfois magnifiques, et tout à côté ce sont des cabanes améliorées. Des dizaines ... read more

Salta by Jo, da, bussen startet opp presis kl 8.50 og vi var riktig fornøyde. Vi hadde ikke kjørt i mange minuttene før bussen kjørte på en lama. Heldigvis så det ut som den klarte seg bra, for den løp videre. Kvelden før, og i løpet av natten før vi dro, pøsregnet det og store vannmasser feide over vegene i distriktet. Veien til Salta var ikke noe unntak, jord og steiner lå igjen etter at vannmassene hadde fosset over veien et utall av steder. Ganske skummelt å se store steiner midt i veibanen, og bussen sneglet seg sakte framover. Bussen foran vår, kjørte seg likså godt fast i jordmassene. Det kom etter hvert en hjullaster og måkte ny veg gjennom søla. Turen skulle tatt tre timer, men tok over fem. Etter anbefaling av et norsk par ... read more

Argentina! The last country to visit on our trip and the realisation that soon we will have to merge back in to normal life! (I know what you're thinking!) Our entry in to northern Argentina became a bit pricey when we should have done changed our leftover Bolivian money in before crossing the border and we lost a fair bit money when paying for our bus tickets with Bolivian money and exchanging the rest with some old lady selling sweets. Oh well, lesson learnt! Our transition from Tupiza to Salta was smooth although it took all day. We had a huge thunderstorm on the way which was also the first rain we had since northern Colombia, basically two months with no rain! The first impression of Salta/Argentina was that there is a lot more of ... read more

Suzanne here... I was slightly dubious about spending18 hours on a bus, but it was by far the cheapest way to get up to Salta. In fact it wasn't too bad. As we moved north the scenery changed to plains and mountains, looking much more like the Argentina of my imagination. We did pass a double-decker bus by the side of the road which I can only described as decapitated. The prospect of an overnight bus didn't thrill me after that. But it was fine. Even if it did take 20 hours in the end. We finally arrived at Salta. Our first job was to book onward tickets to Chile. Unfortunately due to a storm the mountain pass was closed and they could not confirm whether or not the bus we wanted would be running. This ... read more

Leaving San Pedro de Atacama we made our way up the 34km hill to the border of Bolivia, with temperatures hovering around the 2 degree mark until we reached the Argentina border with no problems and the day warmed up to the low 30's as we made our way to Purmamaca for the night. The altitude had knocked Nikki around a bit, so she didn't join us for dinner, as she opted for an early night, her husband, Radar, kindly took her some leftovers to snack on during the night. It was such a great ride over the Paso Jama with views and riding to die for, we made numerous stops to rest our butts and to enjoy what nature had thrown at us. We stopped on the Salar (salt lake) to take some fun photos, ... read more

Monday, 12thSept. thru Wednesday, Sept 28. Hola from Argentina, where the food is good, the wine is better and the people are helpful and friendly. We have had a lot of fun with random persons met over the past two weeks. Waiters, waitresses and taxi drivers have been especially helpful as we fumble along with our our limited Spanish. We are always smiling and laughing and this just attracts like minded people. Observations worth mentioning, Graffiti is rife, we have always felt safe in BA, also most Argentinian girls are tiny and wear ridiculous 5" platform shoes to compensate for their lack of height. Our last two days days in BA before the long trek North; the decision is made to hang around the apartment, relax and leave only for lunch and tango lessons. Outside it ... read more

I just used Salta as a hub for visiting Tilcara to the north, Cafayate to the south, and Cachi to the west. The city is comfortable and pretty and genuine, with countless food stalls near the long park by the bus station. There's a teleférico that goes up a big hill for nice views and a parallel trail that's a 40 minute stair hike. To make up for the unavoidably expensive taxi in Iguazu, I walked to and from the airport in Salta. There was a bike trail along the road most of the way and it took about 2 1/2 hours. ... read more

Da wir nicht nochmals 19 Std. mit dem Bus fahren wollten, haben wir uns den Luxus eines 1,5stuendigen Fluges nach Salta gegoennt. 1582 gegruendet und nicht wie Mendoza durch Erdbeben zerstoert, zeigt sich die Stadt mit hellen Kolonialbauten und barocken Kirchen. Hier mieteten wir wieder ein Auto um den Nordwesten Argentiniens kennenzulernen. Wir besuchten Orte wie Cafayate, Cachi, Tilcara, Uquia, Humahuaca und Purmamarca. So klangvoll wie die Namen, so spektakulaer ist das, was die Natur zu bieten hat. Ueberzeugt Euch selbst!! Nach diesem Naturschauspiel fliegen wir morgen nach Buenos Aires.............. read more
