Itinerary The company solely manages the logistics of this journey; there won't be any guides provided during the bus trips to each destination. Day 1: Puno - La Paz We'll start by picking you up from your hotel in Puno and transferring you to the bus terminal, where the departure to La Paz is scheduled for 6:00 am. During the journey, we'll pass through immigration where you'll need to present your documents before continuing. By approximately 2:00 pm, we'll reach the Bolivian capital. While awaiting the bus to Uyuni, you'll have the chance to explore its cable car system, the largest in South America, offering panoramic views of the city (optional activity, at the passenger's expense).

At 10:30 am, our tour will commence with a 4x4 vehicle, transporting us to the renowned Uyuni Salt Flats, the largest salt desert globally. En route, we'll make a stop at the Uyuni train cemetery, an intriguing open-air museum showcasing Bolivia's early locomotives. We'll disembark from the 4x4 in the town of Colchani, situated near the salt flats. Here, you'll witness the process of salt extraction and visit the remarkable Playa Blanca hotel, constructed entirely from salt blocks, a marvel of architectural ingenuity! Following a regional lunch comprising appetizers, main courses, and beverages, we'll venture further into the desert until we reach Incahuasi Island, situated at the heart of the salt flats.
