Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra

5.0
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Antofagasta de la Sierra
Explore the desolate sea of porous white rocks at Campo de Piedra Pomez, a distinctive volcanic landscape located in deserted Catamarca. Crystallization of volcanic ash and debris shortly after an explosion caused the terrain's striking pumice effect. Dry winds then carved the stone into the harsh, jagged landscape. You won't find any kiosks in this very isolated area, so bring plenty of food and water if you plan to stay for a while.

  • It is difficult to express with words. It is a wonder that seems otherworldly. During our stay in Antofahasta de la Sierra we visit this and other wonderful places with Adrián Fabian (T.E.3834-248520); person responsible, enjoyable, and trained local guide. Wonderful trip.

  • My opinion will differ a little, since we hire a 4 x 4 and made the longest, from Fiambala road, fording more than 90 times the river Las Papas, crossed the cordillera San Buenaventura, then sand them dunes and its great difficulty, finally reaching the amazing field of Pumice stone. 7 hours of ida and 5 back. I do not think to do so because it is an excess of adrenaline to so many incredible situations. But I also don't think to relive so many beauties together. Something to keep in the trunk of our most impressive memories. The young ones I recommend this excursion, especially if they go with experienced guides and 2 cars, just in case. Bring some food and water. From El Peñón is less sacrificed, so they say. Excellent company Eduardo Gonzalez (03834-510721) drivers are a guarantee.

  • We had the fortune to make it to the dawn and alone or our guide (Ilario Vazquez; totally recommended!) was a wonderful experience. Reached us the eyes to fill them with beauty, nor the time to explore more (and that we were 4 hours!). Safety pin!

  • Beautiful place. It is to go only with 4 x 4. And with two trucks, because of the remoteness of the route.
