Accommodations for Inca Trails near Salta

This is a progressive ride where nights are spent in different locations.

On the 9-day trip, 5 nights are spent in cabin accommodations w/shower (2 nights with no heating in the rooms), 2 nights are spent at a boutique hotel in Salta and the last night is at a hotel in Buenos Aires.
On the 12-day trip, the first night is at a hotel in Buenos Aires, 8 nights are spent in cabin accommodations or mountain refuge w/shower (2 nights with no heating in the rooms) and 2 nights are spent at a boutique hotel in Salta.

We spend the night in mountain refuges run by local herdsmen and ranchers, heirs of a pre-hispanic tradition, and have a glimpse of a way of life so different from our own. It is an experience without comparison. In all of the accommodations but the first there are beds with no linen. We use sleeping bags. It is best to bring your own sleeping bag but you can also rent one ahead of time (please inquire).
Three of the accommodations have baths with shower (one with hot water and two with cold water). Only on the first outdoors night there is no bath but there is water to wash yourself.

Hotel in Salta
We usually use a small hotel located steps away from the Plaza 9 Julio de Salta. This hotel provides basic accommodations with a ceiling fan and private bathrooms. There is free Wi-Fi available.

Peñas Blancas
This is a 3000 hectares ranch where cattle is bred. The accommodations are basic cabins. By no means can it be considered a lodge, hotel or anything of the sort. However, it does provide guests with and authentic experience and offers more comfort than a tent. We sleep in beds but there is no bathroom or showers but water is available if you wish to freshen up.

We stay at the house of one of the local families. The accommodation is simple and basic but gives guests a glimpse into the locals’ way of life. A shared bathroom with hot shower is available. There is also electricity.

El Churqui
This is a small and rustic mountain refuge with cold running water and a toilet. Guests sleep inside the cabin in their sleeping bags.

We spend the night in rustic cabin overlooking the Calchaquí Valley. The shelter was built with mud bricks by a local family. There are toilets and cold running water here.

Rastrojitos mountain shelter
This rustic mountain shelter provides us with a roof for the night. No bathroom here.

Hotel Tribeca in Buenos Aires
This beautiful hotel offers modern and comfortable accommodations in the heart of Buenos Aires. The rooms are simply decorated and all feature a private bathroom, a TV, free Wi-Fi, A/C and heating. There is also a fitness center, a sauna and a sun terrace on the rooftop.
