Hiking tour Iruya - San Juan

Hiking tour Iruya - San Juan / 4 Days

Walking through the towns from Iruya to San Juan, today you can still feel the presence of the mysterious culture dating from a thousand years ago which is still holding out against the incursions of modern civilization.

America was discovered many years ago, but this trekking takes us through some places barely untouched: an extensive region of huge mountains and deep valleys, through communities only accessible by foot.

This trekking starts in Iruya, north of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, and from here we enter a blank canvas of map which we will draw in detail over the following four days, with stories, places, lives and people; altogether, it's an experience you will never forget.
