Itinerary

Day 1Isla Incahuasi

Your tour will begin at 10:30 am, at Andes 2 Amazon’s office. The first stop will be Uyuni’s ’train graveyard’, to see the first locomotives in Bolivia. You’ll then visit the small settlement of Colchani (salt miners’ workshops next to the salt flats). Here, you’ll see handicrafts made of salt, and textile art made of llama and alpaca fiber. The tour will continue onto the great Salt Flats of Uyuni, which are at an altitude of 3650m. Take photos as you cruise along the vast white expanse of salt, see Los Ojos de Agua Salada (‘salt water eyes’) and then visit a hotel made completely of salt! This amazing place currently serves as a museum. 

Following this jam-packed morning, after lunch you’ll carry on to “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), where you will have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cactus, and rock formations made of petrified coral. Make sure you and your group pose for some fun perspective- and proportion-distorted photos, taken against the backdrop of the striking white surface of the salt flats. 

Then, we’ll head to Pia Pia island, to see the beautiful sunset over the salt flats. Finish off at the village of Ajencha, and enjoy the unique experience of spending the night in a hotel made almost entirely of salt, called “La Escondida” in Villa Candelaria. 

Day 2Colored Lagoons

Start the morning off at 7:00 am with breakfast, before going to visit the Chiguana Desert, located on the south side of the Uyuni salt flats. It is surrounded by volcanoes, such as the Ollague Volcano (5840m), one that is still active, and that can be seen from the lookout. 

Next, we’ll continue along a rocky road – Pasito Tuntun – to the beautiful Andean lagoons, inhabited by 3 species of Andean flamingos. Marvel at three lagoons on the way: ‘Cañapa’ where you’ll spot the first pink flamingos, ‘Hedionda’ where lunch will be served, and ‘Chiarcota’ where you’ll see a wider variety of birds and altiplanic fauna. 

We’ll then enter the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, and visit the Desert of Siloli, at 4550m (the highest and driest desert in the world). Make sure you take a photo next to the ‘Rock tree’, a lava rock formation. Before arriving to your final destination of the day, we will stop at the viewpoint by the Red Lagoon, where you can spot more pink flamingos in their natural habitat, and admire this intense, red-coloured lake. Stay the night at a shared family lodging, “HUALLAJARA”.

Day 3Geisers back to Uyuni

At 5 a.m. Have early breakfast. Later start with a visit to Sol de Mañana Geyser, at 5,000m. You’ll walk alongside fumaroles, and steaming craters filled with boiling pots of mud at 150-200 Cº. Continue to the open air hot springs, and take a bath in 35ºC water.

The first place to visit is the Dali Desert, where Salvador Dali found inspiration for his work from the scattered boulders in the middle of the desert. You’ll then see the Green Lagoon – toxic copper water at the foot of the big Licancabur volcano, which sits at 6000m, a few kilometers from the Bolivia-Chile border. 

Finally, you’ll head back to Uyuni, passing beautiful scenery along the way, and eating a picnic lunch next to the roadside. You’ll go by the Valley of the Rocks, the Alota settlement, and the San Cristobal Village.

We’ll get back to Uyuni by 6:30 pm. 

For those that wish to finish at San Pedro de Atacama in Chile instead of coming back to Uyuni: Guides will assist with your border crossing at 10:30 am, and you should arrive in San Pedro at 12:00 pm on the third day of the tour. The drop off is at San Pedro de Atacama’s main square.

Seasonal Information

☂During the rainy season

During the rainy season  from January to April, the Salt Flats fill up with water so it is not possible to cross them in the same way as during the dry season. As a consequence, the itinerary is modified during that period. The main changes are usually as follows: 

  • Instead of stopping at the Inca Huasi (Fish Island), we stop at a place where the water reflects the sky and where it seems that the sky and the ground merge into one.
  • On day 1, we might sleep at another location.
  • We visit the Sol de Mañana Geyser and hot springs at the end of day 2 instead of in the morning of Day 3.

☃During the winter season (from June to August), it is not possible to access Eduardo Avaroa national park (red lagoon, dali dessert, green lagoon). However, there is the possibility of visiting black lagoon and rock valley if on the third day of your tour it does not snow. We also may sleep in a different location due to road access.  As it is hard to forecast the weather at high altitudes and due to global warming and it may also snow abruptly.

Packing List

 

  • Sunblock
  • Coat
  • Gloves
  • Wool hat
  • Trekking shoes
  • Warm socks
  • Swimsuit and towel for hot springs at Sol de Manana Geysers
  • Extra bottles of water (we recommend bringing a 5 Liter bottled water so you can have enough water for the whole trip, it can be purchased in the places we stay at)
  • Snacks
  • Personal medication. 
  • Flashlight/torch, camera, extra batteries and memory card, charger (electricity available in most hotels)
  • Hand sanitizer, personal first aid kit.

 

 

Recommendations

It can get very cold, especially during the winter months of May to August  so bring extra warm clothes along like a scarf and wool hat to keep warm. We also recommend bringing an extra 5 litres of water so you can have enough water for the whole trip.  

 

  • You will be sleeping up to 4,300 meters above sea level and depending on the season temperatures can drop well below zero (reaching less than -15 degrees Celsius in the winter months of June and July) and the wind chill can be harsh, so bring plenty of warm clothes like a scarf and wool hat for the chilly evenings.
