In February 2018 I traveled with a group in the magical Puna Argentina! 13 days enter lagoons, mountain ranges, gorges and hills of thousands of colors. I absolutely recommend the service with the excellent guide Adrian Aguero. His professionalism and deep knowledge of this region has made our trip happy and perfect!

What about the Puna and the agency that accompanied us for 15 days? Adrian has a great knowledge of the places, and he has given us the passion for this remote corner of the world. Every day he took us to beautiful places, always attentive to our needs. It is a Spartan journey but we have not lacked anything. I highly recommend visiting the Puna with this agency.
