To travel with Socompa means to live a special Travel Experience.
We don’t want to anticipate anything, but we'd like to to give you a glimpse about the work we do and about your possible Trip with us.... :-)
In Salta we are at full disposal to assist you in choosing a Hotel in the City, but we always suggest the idea of spending at least one Night in Finca Valentina, where Fabrizio and Vlentina live with their family. The idea is to make you feel at home even when you are on the other side of the world, maybe to drink together a Torrontés wine at sunset while chatting about the details of your Trip.
How is it possible to organize lunch with a local family of shepherds in one of the most remote deserts of the Puna? Well, that is our daily job, making sure the information gets there, using sms, satellite phones, e-mail or riding a donkey if we must!
We have about 10 Socompa Guides/Drivers, we always study together the best way to perform your Trip and they know how do to it.
We think that to eat well and drink well are a very important part of a Trip here in Argentina.
For this reason, we have scattered in the region some exclusive Socompa Friends that expect you with a surprise as simple, as delicious and unforgettable, from a simple Asado under a tree, to lunch in an old colonial house in one of the oldest wineries of the world at almost 3000 meters of altitude.
To Experience a Socompa Trip, for those who travel to the Puna, means to Experience the Hostería El Peñón.
A Little Hotel of 8 bedrooms at 3.400 meters in an Oasis where about 400 people live, at 500 km from Salta, without phone line, with satellite internet connection. Yes, logistics are a little complicated but a key point to make you feel at home, even in the midst of the Puna Deserts.
We are already working to include new places, new people, new camp sites, new shelters, only for those who travel with us, to be able to always guarantee an Extraordinary Journey.
