Argentina - Cafayate

27 °C

It was a bit of luck we were approved to do some WOOFING (Working on Organic Farms) just outside the town of Cafayate a couple of days before arriving. Ony a few hours drive from Salta the climate of Cafayate was so different, a lot drier with red dusty hillsides and cacti!

We were working on a gorgeous property that produces wines, and arriving just after the wine harvest, we were kept busy producing jams from all the left over grapes. The property consisted of a big farmhouse surrounded by many lush trees, 4 cats, a friendy dog, roosters, chickens, tiny chooks, some ducks and a pig! We also got to help out with all the animals as we learnt the daily routine of the farm.

We organised a sunset horse-ride with a local who took us through the fantastic countryside on our last night, which was a great way to end our time in this beautiful part of the world.

As we waited for our bus to leave we managed to sample some delicious organic wine at one of the many Bodegas (wineries) in Cafayate town centre, and enjoy some sunshine in the quaint plaza, before we jumped on the bus back to Salta to connect us through to San Pedro De Atacama in Chile.
