A land of "devil's deserts", otherworldly volcanoes, and a town that feels it's at the end of the universe: north-west Argentina is home to jaw-dropping natural wonders you probably never knew existed. I joined a three-day 4WD trip from the beautiful city of Salta, taking Route 51 out along the Rio Toro gorge. Someone I trust had told me that the landscapes were like those from another planet. Nevertheless I was slightly sceptical but look what I found.
Our guide, Jorge, had put together a terrific soundtrack to accompany our journey, often matching the mood of the music to the epic scenery. I can't bring you the whole three days, but, if you have a Spotify account, you may like to play the track (right) which accompanied our most memorable sight.
