It is a lovely place!! The scenery is breathtaking and the silence of implacable nature is amazing. There is local fauna easy to see and enjoy and the cold wind and environment after hot days in lower La Rioja turns out a refreshing break. You need a guide to go with you even when you are using your own car,... More

This is a must do when you are in the area. It is a long day, about 8 hours and you can only do it on a tour or in a convoy. We went with Runacay Tours because they speak English and will do a tour for 2-4 people. I have never seen such wonderul scenery or ever been to... More

I took a wonderful excursion with Fabian Paez from Runacay Servicios EVT 13232 out in Villa Union, La Rioja and it was Wonderful! Furthermore, the reserve of Laguna Brava is located in the Northwest corner of the province of La Rioja, Argentina, limited to the South with the province of San Juan and to the West with the Republic of...

Today I tried to drive to the Laguna Brava but I was stopped on de road at Jague (after driving 100 km from Villa Union). I was not allowed to continue unless I took a guide with me. I guess it is one of those triks to rip off tourists. I turnes back without seeing the laguna. Marc, the Netherlands... More

It's really a hidden gem of the Andes in northwest Agentina. This wetland listed on RAMSAR is the home to Andean and James' flamingos, vicuña, guanaco and other fauna. Amazing landscapes and colors of Andes along the winding road to Laguna Brava.

This is probably one of the most amazing spots in the country! The road there from Vinchina is incredible and arriving at this body of water with pink flamingos, guanacos and vicuñas, and foxes at 4600m above sea level is just astounding. We hired our guide, Gastón, at the tourism office in Vinchina and he was not only knowledgeable and... More

After visiting the national parks, Ischigualasto and Talampaya, we, 2 couples, decided to make the 24. of December to something special and planned a trip to Laguna Brava. It is a salt lake in 4.400 meters altitude and the whole trip - getting there, experiencing the area and back is worth the effort. We almost booked a tour with a... More
