Nice ride that overlooks the city, the park on top of the hill is very pretty, and has a couple of shops selling the typical tourist trinkets. Also has a snack shop. One cool thing is there is a wine seller that sells pretty good local wines, not sure if he is always there, but we enjoyed a nice bottle... More

I would recommend using the cable car at least in one direction if planning a trip to mount San Bernardo. We decided to take the cable car on the way up and walk back. The day we went up we managed to get a car to ourselves and therefore were able to take pictures and enjoy the stunning views unhindered.... More

We have found this attraction without planning. The view from the mountain in nice. The operation time would be longer, so that the visitor can see the sunset view.

For AR$150 return AR$75 one way it is a worthwhile trip. There is a snack bar at the top but no restaurant. A beer and chips or ice cream seemed about the limit. The gardens and waterfalls are well kept and the Swiss mechanics appear well maintained. I left my backpack in the gondola on the way up but fortunately... More

Whilst the views are fabulous once up on the top of the hill, the lack of air con in the funicular makes this an unpleasant experience on a hot day. Fortunately, we had the cabin to ourselves and there were not too many people at the top which made spotting parts of Salta we had already visited good viewing.

We only took the ride down after walking up and paid 75 pesos per person. It costs 150 pesos both ways. It was safe and fun with beautiful views on the way.

As we have been enjoying local wines and food we knew we just had to do some exercise. So decision made, teleferique up to the top and then walk down. If you are a serious exercise person then you could walk both ways. Great views on way up and get an idea of backyards in Salta then the views from... More

When I went at 5:00 on a Sunday afternoon of a long weekend, the line to buy tickets and get on a gondola was about 45 minutes. Once at the top, the afternoon sun made it nearly impossible to take pictures of the center of the city. It is clearly best to go in the morning, when the sun is... More

Travel to Salta and herewith you have a great view of the city below. Students and Seniors get a lower price to ride up to the top. The view of Salta is not available elsewhere. You will love waterfall arrangement at the top. Well worth the price.

The view from the top is excellent. You can walk up, but it is a long way. Even walking down was quite strenuous.
