PHOTO TOUR EXPEDITION TO THE HEART OF... LA PUNA CATAMARQUEÑA:

Duración: 4 days / 3 nights
Maximun: 6 people
This Photographic Journey begins towards the South of Salta, to the province of Catamarca. Using El Peñón as a base today, we will visit the Campo de Piedra Pómez, the pumice stone fields, which were produced by a large volcanic explosion with an impact comparable to that of a small atomic bomb. The fields of labyrinthine and calcareous rocks, carved by the hard and arid winds of the puna, are an incredible sight to contemplate against the backdrop of imposing sand dunes and volcanoes. In the austral spring and the summer months there is also the possibility of visiting Laguna Grande; a saline lake, which lies at an altitude of 4150m and attracts tens of thousands of flamingos including Puna, Little Parina and southern flamingos. We will spend the night in the Hostería de Altura El Peñón or in Antofagasta de la Sierra according to availability of the first option.
