Walk through ancient Inca roads! Trekking to the clouds.

Live this extraordinary experience in the Argentinean Northwest!

Walk through ancient Inca roads and discover old ruins and breathtaking landscapes. Enjoy unique moments interacting with locals while sharing special dinners and warm campfires.

The Trekking to the Clouds proposes three different experiences depending on how many days you choose to walk and the level of difficulty of each version.

Sillon del Inca 

This version is intended for those seeking for a mountain experience within the immensity of Quebrada del Toro. The trail leads to a peculiar panoramic lookout point where native villagers built an observatory (El Observatorio) to share the incredible view with visitors.  The path continues towards Sillón del Inca ruins where we will camp for the night. The way back is through Mount Golgota, passing by Abra del Caminante, reaching 3000 mts above sea level, enjoying wonderful panoramic views of the region. The day ends descending through Golgota’s slope down to the picturesque village of Ingeniero Maury.

Confluencia: 

For those looking for a more active experience and a deeper interaction with locals.

First night camping at Sillón del Inca Ruins, then on the second day, the trek continues up to Abra de la Cruz, the highest point of the trail (3400 mts above sea level). If the sky is clear, the immensity of Valle de Lerma, where Salta city is located, comes into full view. By the afternoon, the Reinaga family will be expecting us in their cozy mountain home expecting to share a dinner full of experiences as we enjoy a privileged view of the hills. During day three, the trek will continue from the deserted mountains towards the outskirts of the Yunga forest descending alongside Río Astilleros, where the vehicle to return to Salta will be waiting for us.

San Lorenzo:

For those travelers who want to extend and experience the full version of Trekking to the Clouds, it is possible to add an extra night and arrive in San Lorenzo. 

The third day, travelers leave the deserted area to enter the density of the Yunga forest. The night is spent at Miss Feliciana Sarapura’s house, with whom we will share our evening meal cooked with local ingredients and a very welcoming smile.

On day four, the trail takes us through the lower hills, the vegetation gets more lush as we approach the outskirts of the yunga’s forest. We may come across the local people herding their cattle as they move from one post to another looking for better grass.

In the afternoon we reach San Lorenzo village, near Salta city. As we get in the truck that will take us back we leave this wonderful adventure behind, treasuring memories that will never be forgotten.

Join us on this adventure, walk over the clouds and feel like touching the sky!

Rewilding Argentina-The Mass Restoration of damaged ecosystems

Every time we want to design itineraries for travelers who love to be surrounded by nature and at the same time learn about conservation, we can think about many places in Argentina. Argentina is blessed with a great diversity of Natural Environments, where different projects of conservation are arising. One of them is Rewilding Experience Argentina. Rincon del Socorro, Estancia Ibera and Posada Uguay are the jewels of this conservation trust and we are very happy to promote them between our clients.

Rewilding means the mass restoration of damaged ecosystems. It involves letting trees return to places that have been denuded, allowing parts of the seabed to recover from trawling and dredging, permitting rivers to flow freely again. Above all, it means bringing back missing species.”George  Monbiot

Rewilding looks to recuperate the unique properties of ecosystems through the active management of its environments and native species, by accelerating the natural process of restoration, and even by reversing the extinction of key species. The objective of all their programs is to completely restore the ecosystems in protected areas located in the eco-regions of the Gran Chaco, the Patagonia steppe, the Sub-antarctic forest, the coast, the Paraná forest and the Yungas. They have a team of highly skilled and motivated people who have a wealth of experience acquired over more than fifteen years of continuous work in Argentina. Their restoration and conservation actions include the translocation of individual wild animals with the goal of reintroducing or supplementing the population of native species, managing grasslands through prescribed burns, the enrichment of degraded forests, removal of fences and the closing of unnecessary roads, control of exotic species and the removal of domestic livestock. Jaguars and pumas are the top large predators in Argentina, and both species have been persecuted by man. At Rewilding Argentina, they favor the recovery and conservation of both, while they understand that coexistence with humans depends on the development of alternative economies, like wildlife-viewing, as well as active management according to regional needs. 

Kallpa understands that through travel we are able to connect people with fragile natural areas and local communities, protecting nature and encouraging local crafts & customs. Responsible tourism can create & sustain local economies, ensuring the protection ofulture and avoiding the extinction of native species.

Patagonian History at Puerto Blest Hotel

Patagonian History at Puerto Blest Hotel

A day in Bariloche starts with a good breakfast and amazing landscapes that captivate the eyes of travelers from all over the globe. As part of the Lakes Crossing circuit we decided to be part of the Patagonian history at Puerto Blest Hotel.


patagonian-history-at-puerto-blest-hotel-4After a twenty minutes transfer from the hotel to Puerto Pañuelo we board a Catamaran to navigate for an hour the Nahuel Huapi Lake to get to Puerto Blest. The magnificent views of the andean mountain range. The snowed peaks, the seagulls flying around to get a cookie from the hands of travelers. The way the sun warms the mountains and sweeps its light on landscapes are a highlight in itself. A great way to experience the Patagonian history at Puerto Blest Hotel

patagonian-history-at-puerto-blest-hotel-5We arrived at Puerto Blest and disembark. This pier located at the end of the Blest tributary of the Nahuel Huapi Lake is a spectacle in itself, At this point you can see how the green waters of the Frías River blends with the cool blue waters of Nahuel Huapi Lake resulting in a surreal view., Surrounded by a dense Valdivian rainforest that only leaves space to enjoy the quiet beach that allows us to enjoy the Blest harbor.

Across from the harbour we find Puerto Blest Hotel. Accessible only by boat. It is a small hotel made of wood and stones like the typical german architecture of the region. With only 14 comfortable rooms, some of them include a seating area where you can relax. Certain units feature views over the lake or the river. There is wi-fi in the hotel..

patagonian-history-at-puerto-blest-hotel-2 patagonian-history-at-puerto-blest-hotel-1At the hotel´s surroundings we can enjoy various activities such as biking and hiking. There is a circuit that will take you to Los Cantaros Waterfall by doing a lovely two hours´ trekking and going up a stepped terrain of more than 800 steps bordering the cascade that begins in the Los Cantaros Lagoon, That effort is crowned visiting the “grandfather” a 1,500 years old tree. From this point we continue our trekking on this trail through the rainforest to get back to the Hotel.

Back in the hotel we enjoyed a nice and warm cup of coffee seating on the deck and having magnificent views of the lake and mountains. The landscape mesmerized you.. Makes you want to stay for hours standing in awe at such a natural beauty. Later we had dinner at the restaurant which serves a menu of local cuisine and great wines. There is also a living room with a tv set for those who love watching movies..
