“Magic Mountains”

Crossing the Calchaquíes and Humahuaca valleys, to the jungle of P.N. Calilegua (Salta-Jujuy. Argentina).

A journey in which we travel the most beautiful mountain passes, including the Abra del Acay challenge (4895 m) + 7 abras (passes), over 4000 meters above sea level. A journey where oxygen is scarce, but where you can lose your breath, for the beauty of the landscapes! 

The participants of this trip say:

“A breathtaking journey. In every sense!”
“Once again, your travel proposal has been a winner and has fully met my expectations! Nothing new in terms of attention, assistance, availability, loyalty, professionalism. What’s” new “in every trip is the culture of the people that you make us known and there is the territory that you make us discover … sometimes with undeniable effort and sweat! Struggle (I speak for myself) up to almost 5,000 to reach the Abra del Acay, along the legendary Route 40, it was not a walk in the park, but by participating in your travels I have learned to never doubt the stages on the agenda. Crossing the provinces of the North West of Argentina was the most spectacular and rewarding cycling experience I have ever undertaken. A continuous crescendo of surprises and emotions step by step”

Tiziana

“Journey full of colors but above all of emotions that remain in your heart, every day other enchanting breathtaking views, and the search for countries far from tourism where you can breathe the original Andean air”

Anna and Bruno

“Super trip, well organized with a very varied itinerary on dirt roads in good condition and little frequented. Perfect duration with the possibility of acclimatizing and recovering.
Mariano was exceptional and looked after us wonderfully”
