Salar de Uyuni

Default Banner.jpg

Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flats, located in Bolivia.


The main starting point of tours to the Salar is Uyuni. There are dozens of tour agents offering this trip. See Uyuni for a list. Alternatively you can set off from Tupiza and end in Uyuni.

On the first day you will visit the salt flats. In the dry season this will be a hallucigenic white landscape. In the raining it is mostly submerged and will show a perfect reflection of the sky. It's not possible to visit the Isla de Pescados.

On the second day you will visit the Arbol de Pierdra and Laguna Colorado and you will see lots of flamingos.

The third day will begin at an ungodly hour to visit the geisers of Solar de Manaña and next to warm up in some hot spings. Last is a visit to Laguna Verde with a perfect reflection of Vulcán Lincacabur. Next will be a long drive back to Uyuni, unless you opt for the four day tour to Tupiza, then you will go off the beaten track, and visit some small communities.

The last day of the four day tour will be a long ride through beautifull landscape. The last attraction before arriving in Tupiza is Sillar.
