1 Incan mummies

Controversially displayed in high-tech fridges, three impeccably preserved Incan children, discovered up a lofty volcano, can be seen in the Northwest’s best museum, MAAM.

2 Train to the Clouds

This magical train ride takes you up a magnificent gorge to cloud nine, via countless tunnels, bridges and loops, hauling you higher and higher to an iconic viaduct in the altiplano.

3 Tilcara

You’ll find charming hotels, an abundance of arts and crafts, a massive colonial church and even a pre-Incan fortress in this village, the best base for visiting the Quebrada de Humahuaca.

Spiral up (or down) a mind-boggling mountain road, zigzagging between the sultry plains of the Valle de Lerma and the rarefied air of Cachi and the Valles Calchaquíes.

5 Vineyards of Cafayate

Try fruity cabernet sauvignons, earthy malbecs and heady torrontés at the world’s highest wineries.

6 Antofagasta de la Sierra

Miles from anywhere, this high-altitude village huddles among out-of-this world volcanic landscapes.
