Do not miss the High Mountain excursion that takes you to the heart of the Andes. And visit the paleontological site called Valle de la Luna. In Mendoza and San Juan we recommend the following tours:
The city of Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes Mountains, is known as “the international capital of wine.” Visit the beautiful city park called Cerro de la Gloria and tour the surrounding wine regions such as Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, Las Heras and the famous Uco Valley.
San Rafael is a great oasis with exceptional characteristics for the production of high quality wines and sparkling wines. In addition, the canyons of the Atuel and Diamante rivers are ideal for lovers of adventure tourism, framed by a natural setting of singular beauty.
The “High Mountain” tour begins in the city of Mendoza and ascends to the heart of the Andes until reaching the border with Chile. During this full-day tour, you can see part of the ancient Inca road network and the highest mountain in America, the Aconcagua.
The wine route continues in the province of San Juan, with excellent wineries in the Tulum Valley. To the west, the imposing Andes stand out and thanks to its exceptional atmospheric conditions it is considered the national capital of astronomical tourism.
The Moon Valley
North of San Juan, the fascinating Ischigualasto Park, better known as The Moon Valley or Valle de la Luna, protects an important paleontological reserve. It is the only place in the world where all the geological layers of the Triassic period can be appreciated.
