Description

Day 1: We will start our tour by picking you up at your accommodation in Uyuni at 10:15 a.m. and drive to the Uyuni Salt Flat in our 6-person 4x4 vehicle, which will be our means of transportation during the three-day trip. On the way, we will make stops at the train cemetery and the village of Colchani, where you will have the opportunity to purchase local handicrafts. Once inside the salt flat, we will visit the Salt Museum and head to Incahuasi Island, a rock formation in the heart of the salt flat. Here, we will enjoy a walk along the trail, admire the giant cacti and contemplate the impressive views of the salt flat from the top of the hill. We will conclude the day admiring the sunset inside the salt flat and then transfer to the Colcha K hostel, where we will have dinner and rest for the next day. Day 2: In the morning, we will leave Colcha K and continue our journey through the Chiguana salt flat. We will visit the Cañapa, Hedionda, Honda and Chiarkota lagoons before entering the Siloli desert. We will conclude the day at the Colorada Lagoon, which is an important nesting center for more than 30,000 flamingos. We will spend the night at the Huayllajara refuge. Day 3: We will start early in the morning to witness the sunrise at the Sol de Mañana geysers, where water fountains gush intermittently at a temperature of 90°C, offering a unique spectacle that will allow us to capture fascinating photographs with the contrasts of the first lights and steam. Afterwards, we will visit the Polques hot springs, with enough time to enjoy a swim if the tour itinerary allows it. We will continue exploring the Salvador Dali desert, as well as the Verde and Blanca lagoons, located near the Licancabur Volcano. We will also make stops at Valle de Rocas and San Cristobal, before heading directly back to Uyuni, where we will conclude the tour at 18:00. Altiplano winter: During the months of January to April, the climatic phenomenon known as the Altiplanic winter, characterized by rainfall in the central Andes, occurs. This could imply modifications in the itinerary, such as spending the first night in a hostel in Uyuni and the absence of the visit to Incahuasi Island, due to the higher concentration of water during this period.
