We took the tram to see Salta. Great views. No wait for us. Able to see the whole town from up the mountain. Nicely landscaped. Easy to get around.

Besides the architecture, Salta has naturally beautiful scenery created by its subtropical highland climate, different from the desert climate of its wine regions. Salta’s architecture is beautifully colorful as seen in photo left page taken from atop San Bernardo Hill, 968’ above the city and accessible by aerial tram.

The views of the city were great, the water features well-designed and a nice enough walk down. We had plenty of time in Salta so it was a couple of hours well spent. If your time was limited I'm not sure I would put this down a must-do, but if you have the time and enjoy seeing a city from... More

It's recommended that you do the last trip on the Teleferico and catch the sunset from on high. Not possible in Summer unfortunately, as the last departure is at 7.30. However, it's a great ride with wonderful views. The cool breeze and the panorama below is well worthwhile when you arrive too. On the day I went it was women's... More

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
