Pioneros en Salta

Most people think that the province of Salta in northwestern Argentina is comprised entirely of colorful deserts, but it also has a cloud forest area that provides a surprising contrast to this stereotype. Pioneros is organizing a four-day (three-night) trail ride for May 23 to 26 in Salta that will show riders how people live in both eco-regions. Nights are spent in mountain huts. The 1,290-peso price also includes all meals and drinks. There will be additional departures during the rest of the months of 2009. Information: 4382-5886 en Buenos Aires.
