Overview
This is a 7 hours packed adventure to discover the biggest Salt Flat in the world. Amazing scenery and places to go, combined with a skillful crew and equipment, makes indeed the perfect day trip. Historical Trains, Massive Salt desert, Lost Island with Giant Cacti and more awaits for you to be seen in this journey into the ancient lands of Bolivia. All guides will share their stories of the area, and help you out with all kinds of crazy perspective pictures in a special location in the middle of the Salty desert.
Highlights
  • 4WD tour of the Uyuni salt flats covers key Bolivian landmarks
  • Great opportunities to take fun perspective photos
  • Tour a hotel made entirely from blocks of salt
  • Enjoy lunch on the flats, dining in a dramatic location
What to Expect
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.
