  • We leave from Fiambala. The route is in very good condition. Immediately begin to observe mountains and volcanoes in multiple colors. Then you will pass by the Cortaderas lagoon, where you can see a beautiful Flamingo colony. Following the path we reached the San Francisco Hill, just before the custom to go to Chile. There we turn off route and to reach a beautiful lagoon next to the mountain, where we could see flamingoes and vicuñas and guanacos. A true gem almost unknown to the majority of Argentines.

  • Place that leaves you speechless, overwhelming beauty! Is not well known or visited, this unspoilt, inhospitable, remote, untamed! REALLY WORTH IT. Tours leave from the town of Fiambalá (ask at the tourist office, we travel with a guide named Nicholas, only there are 3 in Fiambala). Tips: There is no phone signal, take shelter because it gets almost to 5000msnm and with the wind can reach do 7 or 8 degrees in Middle February. Food and water. If or be acclimated to (take 3 or 4 days in offshore areas), make no sudden movement. And of course a good camera to capture everything! There are gaps of colors (green, blue, white, black) Flemish vicuñas, snow-capped volcanoes and all sorts of beauties!
