Great view of Salta

Great view of Salta - our 5 year old was very excited for his first cable car ride. It can be very hot though - so make sure you take water to drink for the ride

Cable cars are a fun enough thing to do when having a look at Salta. They allow you and your party exclusively to go on the car as it only takes about 6 people. They come every 5mins or so and the line goes quite quick. The view of Salta was fine and pretty much just a view of a... More

Teleferico of Salta was a nice stop during my stay there it was a nice clear day and the view was fantastic. At first I was little scared because the structure seemed to be little old but all was working very well price of the ride is reasonable not too much to do once you get on the top, just... More

This is a really nice way to get an overview of Salta. It's much bigger than I thought, from walking around the old city where we stayed. Nice park on top of the mountain too.

The teleferico is a great way to get up and down from Cerro San Bernardo. The views going up are amazing.

You can't miss this. The teleferico goes to the top os San Bernardo hill, which overlooks the city of Salta. A beautiful view of the city and all of the Valle de Lerma. At the top there are places to eat and rest.

As we lined up, we noticed that the cars on the cable weren't moving. We found out that there was a problem with the electricity. I felt sorry for the folks who were stranded on the cable until they repaired it! On the positive side, the employees responded very professionally, refunding the money of those of us waiting in line,... More

On hot days it is that little bit cooler up there. And there might be aliitle more wind. It is also nice to walk along the small artificial waterfalls. There is a small Cafe on top from where you can enjoy views over the city. Not to be missed if you have one or two days in Salta.

150 pesos is a bit tough for the return ride. It is possible to take the path up the hill, it is fairly easy to walk and nice scenery under the tress. The view for the top is nice and engulf the whole city. A nice little trip for a Sunday afternoon when all shops are closed and activity is... More

We took the cable cars to the top and back. Wonderful city views and picture opportunities. The cafe at the top is quite authentic and worth trying.
