Salar de Uyuni (full day)

Description

Salar de Uyuni (full day)

The Salar de Uyuni is probably one of the most popular tourist attractions in Bolivia. They are the world's largest salt flats at 10,582 square kilometers. They are located in the south-west of Bolivia at more than 3,600 meters above sea level.

In the middle of the area is a layer of ten meters thick. It is a paradise for photographers. The reflection, the uniform background, the elongated shadows, the bright light. It might even be one of the most magical areas on earth.

The temperatures during this trip will vary intensely due to high altitudes, strong sun and extreme landscapes. So make sure you are well prepared, pack appropriate clothes, quality sunglasses, sunblock, a hat, and good humor to stay positive! It is an exhausting tour, but definitely worth it.


Itinerary

Pick-up at around 9:00AM in Uyuni. We drive in a 4x4 for about half an hour to the train cemetery. Than we will continue our journey to a town called Colchani where we will visit the local market. Than we will enter the salt flats and stop by the multinational flag stand and the Dakar Rally monument where you can take photos. In the afternoon, we will hike over the Incahuasi Island where you can take a spectacular 360 degree photo. Then we will end our trip with a beautiful sunset and will eventually return to the city of Uyuni.
