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.

After spening the previous 4 days in and out of buses, we decided to walk up the steps from Paseo Guemes (next to the Museum of Anthropology) to the top of the hill. Though not supremely challenging, it does need a bit of exertion! I think there are 1070 steps :-). It was worth it for the view though! Clear... More

Absolutely beautiful park on Cerro San Bernardo - one of the best city parks we visited in Argentina. We actually visited the park twice, the first time on the City Tour, the second time we took the gondola up to the park for a second, more leisurely visit. The water falls are fabulous, the place is immaculate. The views of... More

Visitors to Salta should take the round-trip ride on the aerial tramway to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. Adults pay 70 pesos for the round-trip ticket. The ascent (or descent) takes about 10 minutes. Once on top of the cerro, there is a large park with panoramic views of the city and surrounding area. Many people were enjoying lunch... More

interesting viewing point, where on a clear day one can see all of Salta and beyond. Give a better feel of the size of the area.

Reachable by cable car, a long walk up the stairs, or by a short 20-30 minute drive from Downtown, the Cerro de San Bernardo offers the best views of Salta! Excellent for photo taking opportunities on the way up and once on top, with beautiful paths along a terraced running stream with waterfalls, gorgeous vegetation all around, a small restaurant,...
