Description

Day 1: Tupiza - Quetena We will meet early in the morning at the meeting point in the city of Tupiza, near the border between Bolivia and Argentina. Our first stop will be at the Quebrada de Palala, a unique rock formation sculpted by erosion over millennia. Afterwards, we will visit El Sillar, where we will stop to admire the landscape and take pictures. We will continue our tour passing through Nazarenito, a mining community, until we reach San Pablo de Lipez, a town located at an altitude of 4250 meters above sea level. Then, we will head towards the town of Quetena. Day 2: Quetena - Tayka Desert After enjoying an early breakfast, we will continue our journey by vehicle to the first lagoon we will encounter on our way: the Kollpa Lagoon. During our stop at this salt flat, we will take the opportunity to relax in the hot springs before enjoying lunch. We will then continue on 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. Afterwards, we will continue along the road that crosses the Dali desert, where we will contemplate various rock formations of different colors. We will cross the Sol de Mañana geysers before finally arriving at the Tayka Desierto hotel. Day 3: Tayka Desert - Tayka de Sal Afterwards, we will head to the Colorada Lagoon, known for being a nesting site for flamingos. After witnessing this natural spectacle, we will enter the Siloli Desert, home of the famous Stone Tree. After a brief stop to capture some images of the landscape, we will continue our journey that will take us through a series of highland lagoons. Among them is the Hedionda Lagoon, where we will also be able to observe flamingos, vicuñas and, if we are lucky, the Andean fox. Afterwards, we will go to the Ollagüe volcano viewpoint, from where we will be able to enjoy the impressive views of the Andes mountain range. We will continue our journey crossing the Chiguana and San Juan salt flats until we reach the Tayka de Sal hotel (or similar), where we will spend our third and last night. Day 4: Tayka Desert - Uyuni Salt Flat We will have the opportunity to witness the sunrise and capture breathtaking images, taking advantage of the unique perspective offered by this environment. In addition, we will visit Incahuasi Island, located in the center of the salt flat, from where we will enjoy a 360° panoramic view of this immense extension. After enjoying this special moment, we will leave the salt flat and pass through Colchani, a town known for its salt processing activity and where we will have the opportunity to buy some souvenirs. Then, we will continue our journey to the city of Uyuni, where our tour will conclude.
