Socompa, our remarkable endeavor born in 2004, started as a playful notion.
In search of a transformative adventure that would take me far from my Italian roots, I yearned for the other side of the world. A photograph of a 4×4 pick-up, taken in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, years earlier, kindled a vision of liberation—a means for the life-altering change I craved.
Around 2002, a three-month sojourn brought me to Salta, where the high desert of the Central Andes, the Puna, cast its spell on me.
With that, in 2004, Socompa Adventure Travel was born: a website, a 4×4, and an inexhaustible well of passion.
We blazed a trail in adventure travel through the Argentinean Puna. In over 18 years, Socompa has ascended to become a leading private travel company in the Argentinean Northwest, powered by the finest team of guides in the region.
