Quebrada de Humahuaca Tour

At 11:30 am on the day of the excursion, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Tilcara and board a bus, ready to explore the Quebrada de Humahuaca, a narrow valley known for its colourful rock formations and ancient ruins.

Our first stop will be at one of the most important places in Tilcara itself, the Pucará. This archaeological site is home to a pre-Inca fortification built by the Omaguaca tribe in the 12th century to defend themselves from invaders. After exploring the historic fortress, we'll hit the road again for the 40 minute drive to Uquía, where we'll stop to see the famous paintings of angels for which the quiet town is known.

We'll then continue onwards to Humahuaca, the biggest city in the valley that shares its name. There, we'll enjoy a guided walking tour of the historic centre, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Heroes of the Independence Monument and the Cathedral are particular highlights!

Afterwards, you'll have an hour of free time to get your own lunch, before we head back to Tilcara, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel at 3:30 pm.
