Day 5: SALTA – CAFAYATE – CALCHAQUI VALLEY – HOMESTAYS

Morning: Tour to Cafayate

We depart early for the Lerma Valley – where the city of Salta is located – and through towns where agriculture is the main economic activity (tobacco crops). The most beautiful place is found on our journey to the Calchaqui Valley inside the Shells Gorge. The wind of the Andes and the water erosion have sculpted the rocks, creating incredible shapes and rock formations.

This sunny valley located at 1600 meters above sea level produces wines of high concentrated flavors, especially the Torrontes, a really fruity white grape. We are going to visit a winery that produces organic wines for a wine tasting

Once in the valley, we will meet its inhabitants and spend a few days with a family member of the rural and Community-based Tourism co-operative. The perfect opportunity to practice what you have learn of Spanish and at the same time to get to know the people from the valley, customs and their way of life. The homestays are based on sharing daily life: artisanal or agricultural tasks and other activities with your hosts, but above all-to generate an intercultural exchange
