Movitrack: Northwest Safaris

For those seeking an adventure off the beaten path, Movitrack provides off-road excursions through Argentina’s rough northern terrain. With set departure days each week, these tours leave Salta city early in the morning and return in the late evening, either the same day or the next. With custom vehicles designed specifically for the north’s unique conditions, Movitrack allows travelers unprecedented access to the beauty of Salta, Jujuy and Tucumán.

The Movitrack Safari to the Clouds, perhaps the most popular tour, begins in Salta and follows the famous path of Train to the Clouds, through the jagged and vibrant Toro Gorge and up to San Antonio de los Cobres. From there, the safari continues over the high plateau to salt flats of Jujuy, las Salinas Grandes. Before returning to Salta, the safari passes through the village of Purmamarca, known for its vivid Hill of Seven Colors. These trips can be extended with an overnight stay in the town of Maimará and scenic journeys through the Humahuaca Gorge.

Other excursions include journeys through the Calchaquíes Valleys of southern Salta and the historic towns of Cachi and Cafayate. For those interested in discovering Tucumán, Argentina’s smallest province, two-day safaris can be arranged through the valleys of Salta and into the ancient city of Quilmes.

Depending on the day’s activities, trips are done either as “open air” (with an open roof) or “pure air” (with an oxygenized and micro-filtered air system).

Friends Travel Services designs customized trips to Argentina’s rugged Northwest. Our expert travel counselors can arrange lodging, transportation, and tours—including the Movitrack safaris.
