Trail between Iruya and San Isidro.
The village of San Isidro can only be reached by foot or by horse (about 8Km from Iruya). When the river is low and the weather is good, it is a very nice and easy day hike with beautiful landscapes.
Iruya is a beautiful but very remote village in Northern Argentina. The dirt road that reaches the village is about 50Km long. It fords several rivers and goes over a 4000 meter pass. Iruya is reachable daily by local bus from Humahuaca (unless rain makes the road impassable).
