Buffalonians Bike in Salta, the Undiscovered Gem of Argentina


GObike has teamed up with our office neighbors, Toca Travel, to offer a one-of-a-kind experience biking through Salta, Argentina, to find beautiful scenery, sample regional cuisine, and explore Andean and Spanish colonial history. 

This unique bike tour offers fully supported road and light gravel riding to discover the natural beauties of the Northwest of Argentina, biking through beautiful landscapes, enjoying the authentic cuisine and the finest hotels in the region. We are combining breathtaking bike routes with unique experiences to generate an unforgettable trip. Whilst exploring these destinations, you will feel as if you're on a different planet with red semi-deserts, colorful mountains, snow-capped peaks, etc., which allow not only biking, but also hiking and awe-inspiring moments. In these regions the Andean culture and its Spanish colonial history are at full force—walk through small towns and their cobbled streets with old houses made of adobe, and let your senses come alive.

 
The high-end adventure trip is paired with high-end hotels, including:

  • Colome Vineyard: the second tallest vineyard in the world with a James Turrell Museum, representing five decades of the artist's work;
  • Bordo de las Lanzas, the oldest ranch in Northwest Argentina;
  • Grace, an ultra luxury hotel with one of Argentina’s best golf courses;
  • El Cortijo, offering a cultural immersion in the quaint village of Cachi; and 
  • Legado Mitico, steps away from the heart of Salta and the Children of Llullaillaco, mummified child sacrifices from an Incan religious ceremony believed to have been taken place more than 500 years ago.
