Specifications

  • Day 1:Pick up from your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama and transfer to Hito Cajon (Border Chile-Bolivia). Once in Bolivia, enter to the National Park Eduardo Avaroa, (714,745 acres), at the SW of Potosi. Unique species are adapted to the extreme conditions of the region, some of them endangered. Lakes, salt pans, volcanoes, snowcapped peaks, plains, thermal springs, rivers rich in algae and plankton, geothermal geysers, flora and general topography, makes of this area something unique. Visit Laguna Verde, looking as a dazzling giant emerald, due to high magnesium content and continue to Licancabur Volcano (5,865 m.o.s.l) and then to "Sol de Mañana" Geysers, with fumaroles and volcanic craters of spectacular formation at an altitude of 4.900 mtrs, spouting mixed water and superheated steam reaching 80 to 100 mtrs height; this phenomena dates from the beginning of the earth. The road to Laguna Colorada runs through a unique landscape of deserts and mountains. With an area of 60 km2, Laguna Colorada it is characterized by the red tone of its waters, inhabited by flocks of flamingoes of three species: tokoko -with red plumage-; chururu -with whitish plumage- and jututu, with pink plumage. The scenery is exceptionally beautiful at these heights, set off by the impressive redness of the Lagoon, considered the most important flamingo watching site in the region. Also vicuñas, llamas and vizcachas can be seen. After the visit, continue to Uyuni. Box lunch is served on route. Dinner and overnight at a local hotel in Uyuni
  • Day 2:Pick up from the hotel for your excursion to the Salt Lake and Isla Pescado. Uyuni is the largest salt flat on earth, located on the Bolivian Andean Altiplano with 12.000 square Km; the Bolivian Andes offer stunning sceneries which can be hardly matched. The sound of silence makes the heart beats faster and the surreal pentagons of crystalline salt, the pure sky, the color lagoons, the cacti and the flamingos, certainly makes you feel that there is no other place like this in the whole world. Lunch at Isla Pescado, also called "Incawasi", an oasis with formations of algae and fossils. It is covered by thousands of giant columnar cacti, which can be more than a hundred years old, growing to a height of over 12 mtrs. The landscape against the background of the salt pans extending to the horizon makes it an ideal place for photography hunters. Drive to Uyuni and day use in a local hotel until your transfer to the Train Station, to board the midnight train from Uyuni to Oruro (00:05-07:00+1).
  • Day 3:Arrival at Oruro and transfer to the bus terminal, to take a regular bus from Oruro to La Paz; upon arrival transfer to the hotel
