  • It is a dream... really unique place. Be much oxygen extra and brisk walking quiet. You can enjoy the whole view of the village and see the mountains that surround.

  • Iruya is one of the most emblematic and picturesque of Salta. Not knowing it is not aware of the exotic and magnificent beauty that this province is home to their most hidden spaces. Streets and a melancholy colonial style are interspersed with landscapes breathtaking, unique in the country and the world. Nestled in the mountains, it seems to descend from it, with their magical little houses made of adobe, stone and straw. The horizontal paths do not exist in Iruya. When you walk along the narrow, cobbled streets, it feels accurate be climbing or descending the mountain, given the inclination of the land. It is a place of magic, so lost in the middle of nature as imposing. Although Iruya is located in Salta, is accessed by Jujuy. The road from Humahuaca, consists of 54 km. Take national route 9, to provincial route 13, where a sign announces the road, which is land and is crossed by numerous rivers. You reach Iturbe, then to the Abra del Condor reserve. There are 19 km to Iruya, furrowed by views of stunning, curves and contracurvas. Unforgettable! You should go once in life! Dream fulfilled.

  • Iruya is an amazing place. The trip surrounded by beautiful landscapes, departing from Humahuaca, leads to an amazing place, between mountains of colors which is a small town with a breathtaking view. Among donkeys and steep streets, a true dream.
