Laguna Brava, Province of La Rioja

Encompassing a landscape of blue ponds surrounded by salty plains, Laguna Brava shelters vicunas and guanacos, two of the region's endangered species. The reserve covers some 405,000 hectares (1,000,777 acres), ideal for taking 4x4 tours and snapping pictures of the otherworldly environment. Travel through the reserve--which is at an altitude of between 2,500 m and 4,500 m (8,202 ft and 14,764 ft)--is only possible with a guide, so prior booking is essential.

  • Book the tour via e-mail/web page with Ariel. The service was excellent in terms of: Protocol security, route, information and kindness. We were guided by Ramon, whom I take this opportunity to thank you once more. I recommend hiring this cooperative above other operators of the place.

  • I dare say that it is the most fascinating place in Argentina, all the way prior to arrival at the lagoon is fascinating

  • The tour is also very beautiful route that meanders beautiful mountains. It can be reached by car, most of the road has paved, but it is a pickup truck and if it is double better traction. If a person cares much for your vehicle you should evaluate hiring another more suitable. It is essential to have good guides. Go warm, if it is clothing of better snow, not so much by low temperature but by the wind. Many guanacos and vicuñas are. Flamingos in the Laguna. I also visited Ichigualasto and Talampaya parks. But for me the lagoon excels in originality and beauty. I made the base to go in Villa Union.
