The infrastructure, which is well developed for tourists, is already evident in the simple entry requirements for most citizens from the Schengen area.

What are the entry requirements for tourists from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in Argentina?
Your first destination after arriving at Martín Miguel de Güemes International Airport and picking up your hired car should be the city of Salta. The colonial city hears the beautiful nickname "La Linda", which means "the beautiful one". And indeed, you will soon notice that this city earns this name, because a very special flair awaits you, very much in the style of Latin America.
After spending about a day in the capital of the province, you should head for the Calchaquí valleys. The Los Cardones National Park, named after a particular species of cactus, is characterized by a unique landscape and beautiful car rides. On the way through the province you will pass small villages where you can expect friendly locals and experience the real life of the Andes. The best place to end your day is Cafayate, a place known for its vines. This place is also ideal for an overnight stay, so that you can review the day and your journey so far with a glass of wine in the evening.
After you have discovered Cafayate, you can then set off for San Antonio de los Cobres. Here it is advisable to leave the car at home and take a ride with the "cloud train". The train takes you over the impressive Puna Plateau, where you can see the famous salt lake from a very special perspective. After your trip with the cloud train it is recommended to take your hired car again and visit the famous Hill of Seven Colors. On the way you should make a short stop in the Indian village Tilcara.
