Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Northern Argentina / Province of Catamarca / Antofagasta de la Sierra / Miscellaneous / Campo de Piedra Pomez
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. Arrange to visit Campo de Piedra Pomez and other attractions in Antofagasta de la Sierra using our Antofagasta de la Sierra trip itinerary maker.
