Specifications

  • Day 1:At 14:00 pick up from La Quiaca Bridge (border Argentina/Bolivia) and transfer to the train station in Villazon. Afternoon train ride to Uyuni. Late arrival and transfer to your hotel. Overnight at a local hotel in Uyuni
  • Day 2:Pick up from the hotel for your excursion to the Uyuni 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. Dinner and overnight at a unique Salt Hotel at the shores of the Uyuni Salt Lake
  • Day 3:After breakfast, start an overland journey to Laguna Colorada, with an area of 60 km2, at an altitude of 4,278 mtrs. It is characterized by the red tone of its waters and it is inhabited by three species of flamingoes: tokoko -with red plumage-; chururu -with whitish plumage- and jututu, with pink plumage. The scenery is exceptionally beautiful, 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. Box lunch is served on route. Continue to "Sol de Mañana" Geysers, (4.900 mtrs) with fumaroles and volcanic craters of spectacular formation, featuring intense volcanic and fumaroles activity, emitting spouts of mixed water and superheated steam reaching 100 mtrs height; this geothermic phenomena dates back to the beginning of the earth. Continue to Green lagoon, with the appearance of a giant emerald. From this Lagoon there is an impressive view of Licancabur Volcano. After crossing the border, transfer to your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama.
