Our expedition begins at 10:30 am (the pickup must be coordinated with our team) We will visit as the first destination the 'Train Cemetery' an open-air abandoned museum of locomotives of the XIX century (1940) with crucial importance for the Bolivian history We will have time to take photos on the site and the explanations of our local guide. Our trip continues through the little town of 'Colcachi', a small town located on the border of the Salt Flats, this place is characterized by its souvenirs & crafts of alpaca, vicuña, and other unique salty decorations, in addition to its salt miners who process salt to be sold to the local public. (Not long ago 31 kilos of salt used to cost 0.90 US dollar cents, can you believe it?). Colchani is also the place that houses the only salt hotels in the world, including Palacio de Sal, Luna Salada, and Cristal Samana.

 

All set to discover the largest salt desert in the world? It is here where the real adventure begins! We enter to the salt flats at approximately 12:30, among some visits are the 'Eyes of Salt', 'Salt Crystals' and we will also discover the famous statue of 'Dakar' (automobile event of the most dangerous routes in the world that runs in Bolivia). We go further into the desert to enjoy a Picnic Lunch in the middle of the Salar, a perfect moment to feel small and in total peace!

 

Stomach full, it's time to walk! We will discover the famous Incahuasi Island, Isleta full of giant Cacti that can measure more than 10 meters high. Believe it or not, this island is an immense coral where you can appreciate beautiful landscapes within it and also has the best views of Salar de Uyuni. Our expedition will last approximately 50 min. (It is recommended to take the walk calmly and carefully).

Important note: In the rainy season from January - April, the salt flat is flooded and due to security measures it is not possible to enter Isla Incahuasi, Isla Pescado, Tunupa Volcano, and all destinations where the water could damage the state of the vehicle engine.

Arriving again at the edge of the island we meet again with our driver to go to a place away from the crowds and take funny pictures with perspective. It's fire time! Together in the middle of the salt we will await the sunset and enjoy a toast of courtesy. We will return to the town of Uyuni around 7 pm to 7:30 pm

Best Time To Visit Uyuni? Whole Year, if you are looking for photography reflection: February to April.
About the Rainy Season in Uyuni - Problems with the rains that do not allow destinations such as Isla Incahuasi, Tunupa Volcano and bad for perspective photos.
CORONA VIRUS in Uyuni: Minimum cases detected, safe destination | Taking a private tour is the only option in the meantime, we recommend going between 3 to 4 people maximum. The use of surgical masks is mandatory, the use of alcohol gel for hands is the same inside the car and closed spaces. On the other hand, the only way available to get to Uyuni is by bus (or train if you want an adventure experience) remember that the tour begins directly in the city of Uyuni.
