About Condor Valley

In the Northwest Argentine province of Salta lies the hidden Estancias: La Bodega and the adjoining, El Tipal. These properties encompass the 10,500 foot Mt. Creston and border six miles of the Juramento River, the River of the Oath. Together they make up our long-term conservation stewardship of the 70,000 acres known as La Valle de Condor or Condor Valley.

what you’ll see

A Richer Experience

Imagine sitting around a campfire beneath the stars, savoring a glass of wine from a nearby vineyard while a traditional Argentinian asado sizzles on the grill, relaxing after a day of horsebacking through the high Andes mountainsides, rivers and waterfalls alongside a modern-day Gaucho legend, swapping tales about the condors and wild cats that were sighted only hours earlier.

This unique experience immerses you into the wilderness, landscape, and sacred culture of the conservatory alongside wildlife experts, scientists, and other guest guides.
