Looking for Adventure in Salta? This is the half day biking trip to take.

This is the trip to take! Leaving from the city of Salta in a 4×4 pick-up truck, we will take National Route 51 south-west to the Campo Quijano neighbourhood, covering 40km of the Lerma valley, where we will prepare our equipment to start our journey on bike. After we have prepared our bikes and equipment, we will start our cycle on the trail running parallel to the famous tracks of the Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds), until we arrive at a waterfall at the bottom of the mountains called ‘el Chorro’. After a brief stop to admire incomparable beautiful landscapes, we will cross the “Toro” (Bull) viaduct, to return via the gorge to the main square of Campo Quijano. There you will have free time to visit the historical centre of the village before returning to Salta.

Tips on what to wear in any season in NORTH OF ARGENTINA

On the Bike

– Cycling jerseys or athletic shirts
– Cycling shorts
– Cycling shoes (if you bring your own pedals)
– Sneakers (if you don’t bring your own pedals)
– Athletic socks
– Arm/leg warmers
– Lightweight, waterproof, wind-resistant jacket or vest
– Bike gloves
– Bike saddle/cover (if you prefer your own)

Do I Need to Bring Special Cycling Gear?

Cycling shorts are designed to provide extra padding when spending the whole day in the saddle. You’ll be glad to have them—don’t forget the chamois cream!
If you bring your own cycling shoes, you must bring your own pedals. If you’ve never used clip-in pedals before, we don’t recommend using them on tour.
Arm and leg warmers are essential for cooler weather. Wear them with your short-sleeve jersey and shorts for lightweight, easy-to-pack, and effective warmth.
Bike gloves are a preference, but are recommend for long tours. The padding in gloves can ease arm, shoulder, and joint fatigue.
