Day 1: Bike through Calchaqui Valley to Cafayte
You’ll begin your Bike and Hike Cafayate experience with hotel pick-up in Salta and transfer to the Lerma and Calchaqui Valleys. You’ll pass through small rural farming communities and tobacco fields that give way to arid canyons. As you enter the dry, red-orange gorge, you’ll know you’ve entered the Calchaqui Valley.
Here, you’ll stop and get outfitted with your equipment to continue through the outstanding canyon by bike. You’ll cycle between 30 and 45 miles (50-70 kilometers) along winding ravines and stunning countryside to visit natural wonders including Devil’s Throat and The Amphitheater.
You’ll arrive in Cafayate in the mid-afternoon, and have the opportunity to freshen up at the hotel and explore the town your own before meeting with the group for dinner and Argentine wine(not included).
DAY 2: Hike to Rio Colorado Falls
After breakfast at the hotel, set out on a winery tour and tasting, where you’ll have the opportunity to try the Calchaqui Valley’s iconic torrontés wine.
In the afternoon, you’ll set out on a 3 mile (5 kilometer) hike to the famous Rio Colorado Waterfalls. To reach the falls, you’ll need to make a trek through steep, rocky, and wet terrain (medium difficulty), but the view is well worth the trip! You’ll make the return trip to Salta in the mid-afternoon.
