Meet a driver for a morning departure and then set out across the Uyuni salt flats in a 4WD vehicle. The first stop of the day is the Uyuni train graveyard, where Bolivia’s first trains are rusting into a surreal landmark. Then see a salt miners’ workshop in Colchani.
Continue onto the salt flat itself, passing salt mining operations and the “eyes of the salt” on your way to a fascinating salt hotel. Tour the rooms, see salt sculptures, and pause for an included lunch in the hotel.
From there, head to Inca Wasy Island to see cactus, rock formations, and petrified coral, stopping to take plenty of classic Uyuni perspective photos. Then catch a stunning sunset before returning to Uyuni.
