Salta Historic Folk Walk Including a Traditional Peña
Discover the history and folk traditions of northern Argentina during this 4-hour guided experience in the culturally-rich city of Salta. Spend an evening in a traditional peña (folk music club), where you'll learn the basic steps of a traditional dance while listening to stories of this popular pastime. Hotel pickup is included.
The tour starts with the pick up from centrally located Salta hotels. From there, your professional guide will transport you to a "Peña", a concentration of people united to play guitars and regional instruments. Local traditions and habits greatly influence the gathering. Discover northern folk roots through a guided tour of the main points of the area. See where poets and musicians salteños meet up and tour. Listen as your guide tells you fun tales about the history of the Peña.
During the Peña, learn the basic steps of the traditional dance. Salta has been the birthplace of folklore and singers, for those interested and want to participate in music and dance. Gatos, chacareras and zambas are all part of Salta's extensive history. The region is also well-known for its unique landscapes and variety of wines. Conclude the tour at the Peña where you can keep enjoying the music or return to your hotel (drop-off not included).
