Day Two: AMAZING LAGOONS – UNIQUE WILDLIFE - DESERT & DUNES

This morning, following breakfast, we depart and drive southbound across vast deserts, moorlands and rivers shadowed by snow-capped volcanoes. The journey takes around eight hours, including stops for lunch and sightseeing, with plenty of time to explore. Some of the scenic stops along the way include secluded lagoons filled with Andean flamingos and, with some luck, possible sightings of the rhea (Andean ostrich), vicuñas (a wild relative of llamas), viscachas (an Andean rabbit with a squirrel tail) and more. The likelihood of wildlife is high, as this region is still relatively undiscovered and therefore receives few visitors. Traveling further south, we will see sand dunes, vast deserts, archaeological pre-Inca remains, traditional villages and panoramic views of the Bolivian Altiplano (high plateau). Driving here is on dirt tracks, a truly off-the-beaten-path 4x4 expedition. Overnight in a simple guesthouse with private accommodation and bathroom. Warm showers provided. NCLUDED

Day Three: COIPASA SALT FLATS –ANCIENT MUMMIES AND LOST CITIES

This morning we leave for the famous Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni Salt Flats) stopping en route at Salar de Coipasa (Coipasa Salt Flats) and an intruiging lost pre-Inca citadel. Known as 'the great, unknown civilization of the Altiplano', this site is particularly spectacular because of its mysterious tombs housing mummified corpses that are hundreds of years old. Coipasa Salt Flats is not as well known or visited as Uyuni Salt Flats, but this works in our favor as we will have about 3000 square kilometers of salt plains all to ourselves when we traverse it during the day. By the end of the afternoon, we will arrive to the northern rim of Uyuni Salt Flats for a well deserved rest in the doorstep of this natural wonder. Overnight in one of Uyuni’s famous salt hotels – Palacio de Sal, Luna Salada or Cristal Samaña. These world-renowned hotels have won awards and featured in international magazines and provide a truly unique accommodation experience. They offer comfortable, warm rooms with some heating and electric blankets often provided. Rooms include private bathroom with hot showers and electricity. Wifi is available, however may be restricted to common areas. INCLUDED

Day Four: UYUNI SALT FLATS – INCA HUASI - TUNUPA VOLCANO

Continuing our adventure, today is the grand finale, in which we get to explore Salar de Uyuni and its top natural attractions. We drive to a mesmerizing viewpoint at the base of Thunupa Volcano, where you can hike as much as you choose with the explansive salt flats extending like a white sea below you. Later in the day, we also enjoy a mild hike to Inkahuasi Island for 360-degree panoramic views of the salt flats. Have fun playing with the perspective effect in the middle of nowhere (don’t forget to bring props for photos, such as food, toys or anything you can imagine). By sunset, we will exit the salt flats via Playa Blanca, a former salt hotel with its famous multinational flag stand and Dakar memorial. Our trip ends in the town of Uyuni around 6pm. We can transfer you onto the airport or bus station if you need to make a flight/bus to La Paz or elsewhere (please request if you would like us to arrange this for you).
