If you are traveling to Bolivia, this is a day trip that can't be missed! Cruise along out-of-this-world landscapes and take incredible perspective photos in the world's largest salt flats.
The Salar de Uyuni or "salt flats" is one of the world's highest deserts, surrounded by mountains and volcanoes that reach 5000 meters above sea level.
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 cacti, 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 a quiet place to see the beautiful sunset over the salt flats. Finish off at the village of Colchani, and finally, get back to Uyuni by??6:30 pm.
