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.

  • We traveled from Buenos Aires to Vinchina La Rioja, we stayed at the Portal of La Laguna, we hired a guide in the tourism cooperative, Ramon explained the entire, indescribable landscapes up to Laguna Brava 4200 masl, impressive place, habitat nature of the pink flamingos, from there we see the bonnet volcanoes, El Veladero and the Pissis. A spectacular journey for the nature lovers. Highly recommended.

  • Awesome all the way to Laguna Brava, between mountains of pastel colors, a heavenly place. In it there are geysers in activity and Flemish communities. I recommend going with a guide. It is a very high place, not shaken because there is little oxygen.

  • 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.

  • Tremendous place. It's amazing. Highly recommended. Go with a guide add a lot. You can hire a guide. Tourism has the phone. The guide can go in your car or take you. You can go with any car.
