If in Salta you should definitely make the trip up Cerro San Bernardo. We chose to walk up it as we wanted the exercise. It is nearly steps the whole way to the top. I did it in my flip flops so it is not a difficult walk and only takes about 40 minutes to get to the top. On... More

We rode the cable car to the top of the hill. Luckily we went early enough so there was no line. It was extremely hot in the cable car as no air was entering and it was a hot sunny day. It was a nice place to stroll around on top of the hill. There was a grassy area, an... More

We walked from the monument to the top of Cerro San Bernado. The path was mainly stairs but wide enough for people to pass each other going up and down. It is very popular with the locals who use the stairs as a form of exercise. Once we were at the top we walked around the waterfalls/water features and there... More

I walked up the hill. It was stairs till the top, not very challenging. On the top you have a good view over Salta. The city is not very impressive, but its great to see the mountains at the horizon.

We took the teleferico to Cerro san Bernado and walked back into town. The cable car ride is much like any other, and we were lucky it was not a busy day so we didn’t have to queue at all. The landscaping and set up at the top of the Cerro, 258 metres above the level of the city, was... More

Took the tram to the top -great views, but kind of touristy at the top. A good thing to do on a clear day

We came up at sunset to enjoy the views over the city. After numerous days of steak and wine we thought it a good idea to stretch the legs and break a sweat. The walk up would be challenging for those with not much fitness. We broke into sweat before half way up, but it was a worth the hike... More

Do not miss the city views from this mountain. You can take the cable car or hike your way up. We especially enjoyed watching city lights go on while being surrounded by natural beauty.

Fantastic view. City owned exercise, craft store, cafe, water fountain and restrooms equipment on top. You can take cable car or walk up the steps if you don't want to go up the winding road.

We visited the Cerro San Bernardo on our last trip to Salta, I recommend hiking by food if you like to exercise. You go up on the trail from the Monument to Guemes. Subimos caminando al cerro San Bernardo es muy buen ejercicio, hay que estar en buen estado. se sube desde el monumento a Guemes.
