Ischigualasto and Talampaya: complete visit is a proposal of 4 days and 3 nights to get to know in depth two dazzling national parks.

Talampaya National Park is located in the central western part of the province of La RiojaIt is located near Villa Unión (60 km). It was created on July 10, 1997. It has an area of 213,800 hectares belonging to the eco region Monte de Sierras y Bolsones. In 2019, it was chosen as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Argentina.

Ischigualasto Provincial Park (San Juan), has an extension of 63,000 hectares. It is more commonly known as "Valle de la luna", which together with Talampaya form a single continuous unit, a single Ischigualasto-Talampaya site where the sediments of the entire Triassic period can be seen outcropping on the surface. The natural boundary between the two parks, and at the same time the interprovincial boundary, is the top of the low mountainous formation called Sierra Morada. This falls abruptly to the west, so when seen from the Valle de la Luna it is called "Las Barrancas Coloradas".

In the year 2000, UNESCO declared the area composed of the Talampaya National Park and Ischigualasto Provincial Park, calling them Ischigualasto / Talampaya Natural Parks.

The full day excursion departs early from the city of La Rioja from the downtown hotels, to go to Ischigualasto Provincial Park, better known as Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley). We arrive at the Visitor's Center, where tickets are purchased. We enter the circuit in our vehicles in caravan and with a Park Guide leading the same, making a journey of 3 hours. Of course, we will make several stops: Valle Pintado, Cancha de Bochas, El Submarino, Museo de Sitio, El Hongo and Barrancas Coloradas. The guide will explain in each one of them, the characteristics of the Park, while we appreciate the unique landscape and have time to take pictures. At the end of the tour we continue our trip to Talampaya Park. We arrive after noon at the Visitor's Center, where we buy the tickets and the activity or experience we want to do.

After the tour there is time for lunch at the park's dining room. Passengers enter the park in vehicles with an authorized guide and once the tour is over, they transfer to company vehicles to return to the city of La Rioja.

**The order of visit to the parks is at the sole discretion of the company. It can be reversed starting in the morning for Talampaya and continuing in the afternoon for Valle de la Luna.
