SAFARIS 4X4 & EXCURSIONS, FOURTRAX, OFF ROAD IN IGUAZU


Iguazu Adventure Travel & Tours ...

This is a 20 kilometer trip along the Yacaratia path, located in Iguazu National Park Reserve. The path is closed to private vehicles, and research work, such as the Carnivore Project and primate studies, take place there.

The trip along the paths, lasting about two hours, is made in specially prepared open-topped vehicles, to be able to photograph and film the targets more easily. This is most important, since the tree-tops in the forest shelter very special life-forms: orchids, cactaceae and bromelias, "strangler" trees, and a great variety of birds and mammals such as squirrels and monkeys with tree-living habits.


SAFARIS 4X4 & EXCURSIONS, FOURTRAX, OFF ROAD IN MENDOZA


Mendoza Adventure Travel & Tours ...

The Cordillera de los Andes Mountainrange landscapes are especially indicated for this kind of travels. One of the most popular circuits takes you to the Laguna del Diamante Lagoon, located in the town of San Carlos.
The excursion starts at the Capital City of Mendoza and heads towards the town of Pareditas, a district where traditional way of life seems to endure throughout time. Taking then route 101, a snail-like dusty road, you make the descent to the Lakes area. The scenery seems to invite you to step off from your vehicle and survey the gentle and breathtaking view. You will have lunch at the shores of the lake, where, if you wish, you can practice sport fishing.

Another well-known tour reaches Nihuil, in the San Rafael Province. Travelling in four-wheel drive vehicles across mountain paths and sand dunes.
Nihuil is at 1500 m.a.s.l.. From this place is easy to watch, in all its extent, the Nevado Mountain that reaches a height of 3800 m.a.s.l.. Among the services included in the tour's programme, there is a delicious typical Criollo Beef Steak.


SAFARIS 4X4 & EXCURSIONS, FOURTRAX, OFF ROAD IN SALTA


Salta Adventure Travel & Tours ...

Operators in Salta have launched a new tourist alternative with relative success: photographing the most imposing landscapes of the province, like the Iruya and the Calchaquí Valleys, or chasing the Tren a las Nubes (Cloud-Bound Train), all aboard a four wheel drive or SUV vehicle.

They are real photo safaris realized through different landscapes you can find in the Provincia de Salta Province.

A professional photographer guide is required in order to help point out how, when and from where to take the pictures that travellers wish to take.

The El Rey and the Los Cordones National Parks are ideal places for this activity. The Baritú National Park is difficult to access and has no tourism infrastructure.

The land of the Salta province has uneven roads, as if especially meant to be travelled by these kinds of vehicles. Four Wheel Drives, or Sport Utility Vehicles, are built for adventure, and here in Salta, you will find the best roads to enjoy them.

You will be able to experience the Provincia de Salta Province, full of valleys, ravines, immeasurable highlands, and towns with profound Andean roots, invaluable pre Inca testimonies, a climatologic diversity and places between 900 and 4,000 plus meters above sea level.

CIRCUITS

The Alta Puna (Highland) Circuit: It runs from Salta to San Antonio de los Cobres, and it takes one day. It is a 380 kilometres roundtrip, and there is the chance of being a privileged witness to the rich highland's flora and fauna: a variety of cacti, as well as vicuñas, guanacos, rheas and pink flamencos.

The Lagunas del Toro, Salinas Grandes and San Antonio de los Cobres Lakes Circuit: It is a consolidated dirt road, where slabs and cuts through dry gorges are predominant, with sandy ground sectors during the southern hemisphere's winter, and fording places during the southern hemisphere's summers. Due to the difficult terrain, it is necessary to know the roads or to be accompanied by a guide driving an additional vehicle. The difficulty levels are 3 during the southern hemisphere summer and 2 during the winter.

The Calchaquí Valleys Circuit: During this 260 kilometre roundtrip, the province offers unforgettable landscapes in any of the three alternative routes from which to choose: Salta - the Valle del Tonco Valley, Payogasta - Molinos or Molinos - the Parque Nacional Los Cardones National Park.

Even though the roads can be travelled all year long, it is convenient to take into account the sandy surface forming during the southern hemisphere winter. It is recommended not to enter the Valle Encantado Valley while it is raining, and to drive carefully when taking the bends in the Cuesta del Obispo (Bishop's Slope).

In any case, it is recommendable to be accompanied by a guide, for part of these routes run through the Parque Nacional Los Cardones. Do not forget to carry provisions, water and additional equipment for the vehicle. The levels of difficulty are 2 in the Valle del Tonco and the Valle Encantado, and 1 in the rest of the circuit.

The Rutas de la Huella Perdida (Route of the Lost Track) Circuit: It links the small towns of Guachipas and El Jardín, through the so-called Antigua Ruta Nueva (Old New Route), in the southern part of the province, on the border with the Tucumán Province.

This road is a true challenge after the rainy season, by the end of the southern hemisphere's summers; hence, it is required to gather information about its transit conditions at the Secretaría de la Gobernación de Turismo, before running it during any time of the year, a guide or expert is indispensable to negotiate this 10 hour journey, with a difficulty level of grade 3.


SAFARIS 4X4 & EXCURSIONS, FOURTRAX, OFF ROAD IN SAN LUIS


San Luis Adventure Travel & Tours ...

The practice of overland 4 x 4 rides offers a different way of watching and enjoying the San Luis sierra mountainous landscape. The main advantage of sport utility vehicles is that, riding on them, travellers can access places that could not be normally reached with a conventional automobile; virginal spots and paths that deserve being discovered by a four by four vehicle.

Nevertheless, it is a not much spread activity in the province; so therefore, it becomes necessary to resort to the services of a local guide, or to look for the off road clubs which have guides and the adequate rescue equipment.

The specialists on the subject recommend organizing an adventurous trip among friends, through one of those intricate roads hidden by the geography of San Luis. They say there is no better way of knowing some environments of incredible beauty.

The most suggestive routes are those threading hills, rivers and streams in the surroundings of the El Morro, Tomolasta, Bajo de Véliz, Merlo, El Volcán, and Potrero de los Funes localities.
