iruya and san isidro (argentina) - 40 photos

Photos of the villages of Iruya and San Isidro (Argentina)

Iruya is a beautiful but very remove village in Northern Argentina.­ The dirt road that reaches the village is about 50Km long.­ It fords several rivers and goes over a 4,000 meter pass.­ Iruya is reachable daily by local bus from Humahuaca (unless rain makes the road impassable).­

It can also be reached with a regular car at the dry season only, since there is several rivers to ford.­ As soon as it rains in the region, the rivers will become impassable unless you have 4x4 (4WD).­

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.­
