Experience the magic of the Puna and its people.

Antofagasta de la Sierra and Antofalla. Magic Puna. Catamarca

The particularity of this new trip is that we focus on the community of Antofalla where only 45 people live. We usually visit the Antofalla Salt Flat and the Antofalla Community on a full day excursion from Antofagasta. In this way, we propose you to make a much more experiential visit, staying one night in family houses of Antofalla. This allows us more contact with the local culture, to make a very intense trip in a more “relaxed” way and to do a trekking through the Vega de Antofalla with a native person from there.

We will also visit the Antofalla Salt Flat and Volcano, Las Quinoas (where 3 people live), the village, the volcanoes and the lagoons of Antofagasta de la Sierra and Campo de Piedra Pómez, among other attractions.
A great trip that will leave us moved, remembering the landscapes and people of the puna for many more days.
