Take advantage of the numerous incredible photo opportunities during the ride. Arrive in Tafí del Valle - a mountain village about 100 km from Tucumán. Enjoy time to explore as you soak up the special atmosphere this small town has to offer. Admire the scenery of the town housed in a whirl of mountains and flanked by crystalline rivers from the melting snow. Find out about how the town's name derives from the indigenous word 'taktillkta' which means 'splendid entrance'. Discover how peasants and sheep farmers have taken refuge in the mountains and devoted themselves to craftsmanship using techniques learned from their ancestors. Sample excellent farmhouse cheeses seasoned with red peppers and shop for local handicrafts.
