Nice view

It offers a nice view of the whole city but it is a bit expensive. You can also go to Cerro San Bernardo by taxi and you can have a great view from there. No need to go by tram.

If you are visiting Salta and the weather is good, don't miss the Teleferico and the view from San Bernardo Mountain. For Mountainbike fans: you can rent a bike and ride down, all-day tickets are also available!

It is a short tram ride up the side of the mountain. Great view of the Salta area. Wasn't expensive and there is a little cafe on top. We only had a beer.

The views really aren't that spectacular. If you've got limited time or not much on the agenda,, have a go at it but it's really not that interesting. I was there on a clear day and you can certainly see far but the city isn't that impressive, nor are the local mountains from that vantage. Kids would enjoy it though... More

Well worth the admission fee of 85 pesos. Takes about ten minutes each way. Really good views of the city. Restaurant, bathrooms and artisan market at the top. Small man made waterfalls are nice to see. Large park and small lake across the street. Lots of food vendors if you are hungry. About a 25 minute walk from Plaza 9... More

Salta is a checker-board low rise town filling a large valley bordered by featureless hills. Looking down on it from a height of 2,000 or so ft tells you nothing about it, and such ground level landmarks as it has vanish into thin air the higher you rise. The view from the 6th floor of our hotel was worth twice... More

The cable car, is a cable car. It costs $A 85 for a return trip and $A 45 for a single. Once up the top you get good views of the city and there are a few interesting features on top of San Bernado. The cafe was closed ( it looked as though a party was there the night before),... More

A beautiful ride to the top of the cerro and a magnificent view of Salta and the surrounding area. Take the time to have an empanada (surprisingly good) and a beer and take in the beautiful scenery.

First, make sure you go on a sunny day. If you go on a cloudy day, it will be a waste of time. In the summer months, that means going up in the morning before afternoon clouds and rain come in. The entrance is located just a few blocks away from the downtown area. Tickets are not expensive. You can... More
