Avec des hôtels de charme, des auberges, des spas, qui vous offrent de nombreuses possibilités pour vous loger et vous détendre dans un environnement encadré de vigne. Accompagné de la convivialité des habitants, et de l’authenticité de leur cuisine,

La province de Salta

Est une région de l'Argentine, située à l'extrême nord-ouest du pays. Elle est limitée au nord par la province de Jujuy et par la Bolivie, à l'est par le Paraguay, Formosa et la province du Chaco, au sud par les provinces de Santiago del Estero, de Tucumán et de Catamarca, enfin à l'ouest par le Chili.

Les découvertes archéologiques faites en province de Salta et dans les provinces voisines portent à croire que l'être humain commença à peupler la région il y a quelque dix mille ans, grâce à des migrations successives provenant du nord.

La base de l'économie repose sur les cultures industrielles comme le tabac, la canne à sucre, les agrumes (pamplemousses), les haricots, la vigne et le coton. A souligner l'excellence de certains vins argentins produits notamment dans la région de Cafayate. L'élevage est représenté par les troupeaux de bovins, et un peu de bétail chevalin, mais en proportion fort réduite.

Grâce aux altitudes élevées (qui atteignent voire dépassent les 6 000 mètres) la province de Salta est dotée d'importants cours d'eau, bien que mal répartis sur son territoire.

Les trois rivières les plus importantes et les plus abondantes sont le río Pilcomayo, le río Bermejo, (tous deux tributaires du río Paraguay) et le río Juramento

Dans le nord-est de la province, c'est-à-dire dans le « Chaco Salteño », il existe de vastes zones humides appelées « humedales », fréquentés entre autres par de nombreux oiseaux, des caïmans et des anacondas, comme les Bañados de Los Colorados et les Esteros del Quirquincho (Étangs du Tatou).

La rareté des précipitations et le climat froid ne permettent pas le développement d'une faune très importante. il y existe cependant une faune variée et qui ne manque pas d'intérêt. Entre autres espèces, il faut souligner la présence du légendaire condor des Andes , du puma de la vigogne , du lama , de l'alpaga , et aussi du renard des Andes , du flamant des Andes . Le chat des Andes est en forte régression à la suite de l'inquiétante baisse d'effectifs de sa proie principale, le chinchilla à queue courte , lequel, mal protégé, est en grand danger.

In these mountains , we find the " Calchaquies " Valleys .

Shortly before Cafayat , vines appear , dry climate of the region is conducive to viticulture , with the spatiality of ice wine

Found between the vineyards at altitudes between 1800 and almost 3000 meters above sea level , the average temperature is 24 ° Cto 300 mm of rain per year , with an area of ​​82 Ha of vineyards .

These vineyards are among the highest in the world . Localities Amaicha del Valle, Valle del Colalao and Quilmes are part of Tafi del Valle department , which is one of the least densely populated province with 14,933 inhabitants spread over 2,741 km2 , an average of 5 4 inhabitants per km2

The Calchaquies Valleys are traversed by the Rio Santa Maria. Southeast is the reservoir of Rio Hondo . Further north are found reservoirs of " El Cadillal " on río río Dulce, "La Angostura " , on the Río de los Sosa and withholding Escaba after the confluence of the two branches of the River source Marapa .

Eternal snows above 3,500 m heights also have a very important function of fresh mountain water tank.

The highest peaks of the province are " del Bolson » Mont culminating in 5,550 meters and Mount two lagoons (or Mont Condor ) to 5450 meters.

Mountainous cords hold and are rising damp winds from the Atlantic. Condensation ensues in this area causes rain with accumulations of more than 1,000 mm per year on the eastern flanks. These rainfall give rise to an area of ​​lush vegetation which gave the province of Tucumán the nickname " Garden of the Republic" .

This area is abundant vegetation nimboselve ( cloud forest ) which is part of the " Selva Tucumanotarijeña " "( forest Tucumán Tarija Bolivia ) or the southern Yungas region .

The basis of the provincial economy is agréculture : sugarcane cultivation Lemon , Strawberry, Kiwi , dried beans, fresh beans , peppers, and green beans ( chauchas ) . There are also cultures of Corn , Sorghum and Soybean Luzern

Since 95 years , we see more and more plantations blueberries ( arandanos ) .
