A mystical trail.
It’s often true that the most interesting gems are somehow hidden. This is why it’s worth taking time to visit and discover the Triassic Canyon Trail, a must-see location just a ten minute drive away from the centre of Villa Unión, a small village in this little corner of La Rioja. Four-wheeled adventure enthusiasts will love it here; driving through the colourful rock formations and archaeological remains offered by this extraordinary site bring you straight back to the Triassic Era. Upon entering, the trail leads through a valley with colours ranging from deep reds, light greens and yellows. But the real payoff is at the end of the trip: a field full of 200 million-year-old rocks, naturally eroded by wind and shaped into spheres. It’s a sort of Pink Floyd album-cover experience, but in real-life 3D. But pay attention: it’s possible to look at these magic stones for as long as you like, but not, under any circumstances, to touch them. Anyone keen to get to know all the secrets about this trail should hire an expert local guide who will lead you through this amazing experience.
