Description

Day 1: Tupiza to Quetena We will meet early in the morning at the designated meeting point in Tupiza, located near the border between Bolivia and Argentina. Our initial stop will be the Quebrada de Palala, a distinctive rock formation formed over millennia by erosion. We will then visit El Sillar, where we will pause briefly to admire the scenery and take pictures. Our route will take us through Nazarenito, a mining community, before arriving at San Pablo de Lipez, a village located at an altitude of 4250 meters. Continuing on, we will reach the village of Quetena, where we will spend our first night. Day 2: Quetena to Huayllajara After a morning breakfast, we will continue our journey in the vehicle to the first lagoon on our route, the Kollpa Lagoon. We will have the opportunity to capture some photographs before heading to the Chaiviri salt flat. Afterwards, we will continue to the Verde Lagoon, located at an altitude of 4250 meters, at the foot of the Licancabur Volcano, on the border between Bolivia and Chile. Continuing our journey, we will cross the Dali desert, admiring its varied rock formations of different colors. We will pass by the Sol de Mañana geysers before arriving in Huayllajara, where we will stay for our second night. Day 3: Huayllajara to Villa Candelaria We will head to the impressive Colorada Lagoon, known for being an important nesting site for flamingos. After marveling at this natural spectacle, we will continue on to the Siloli Desert, home to the iconic Stone Tree. After a brief stop to capture some images of the landscape, we will continue on our way that will take us through a series of altiplanic lagoons. Among them is the Hedionda Lagoon, home not only to flamingos, but also to vicuñas and, if we are lucky, we will be able to spot the Andean fox. Afterwards, we will head to the Ollagüe Volcano viewpoint, from where we will enjoy impressive views of the Andes Mountains. We will continue our journey crossing the Chiguana and San Juan salt flats until we reach Villa Candelaria, where we will spend our third and last night. Day 4: Villa Candelaria to Salar de Uyuni We will leave in the early hours of the morning, before dawn, to enter the Salar de Uyuni, the largest in the world. There, we will have the opportunity to witness the spectacular sunrise and capture stunning photographs, taking advantage of the optical illusion offered by the vast white horizon. Our next stop will be Incahuasi Island, located in the heart of the salt flat, from where we will be able to contemplate a 360° panoramic view of this vast extension. After enjoying this unique moment, we will leave the salt flat behind and pass through Colchani, a town known for its salt processing activity and where we will be able to buy some souvenirs. Finally, we will continue our journey to the city of Uyuni, where our tour concludes.
