OVERVIEW ITINERARY:

Day 1 | Uyuni Salt Flat 1-Day Tour – Spectacular Scenery and Unforgettable Memories!

The Uyuni Salt Flat 1-day tour starts with a visit to Uyuni’s eerie ‘Train Graveyard’ where you will learn about the first locomotives in Bolivia.

On our way to Salar, we stop to visit the small old mining town of Colchani. You will hear stories about those who worked in the salt miners workshops and you will also find handicrafts made of salt.

Take photos as we cruise along the vast white expanse of salt and visit los Ojos de Agua Salada (‘’salt water eyes”).

Next up is the main attraction – The Uyuni Salt Flats! Immerse yourself in the spectacular natural beauty of one of biggest salt flats on earth!

There will be plenty of time to take lots off fun, perspective photos. See how creative you can get! Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen as the sun can be quite harsh reflecting off all that white!

Next up, you will be served a most memorable group lunch on the salt flats.

Following this, we will visit ‘Incahuasi Island’ (Fish Island). From here, you’ll see the giant cactus, and the rock formations made of petrified coral.

We will also visit a Hotel made completely out of salt, which is now a Museum and well worth a look.

As the sun sets, our tour ends and we head back to Uyuni.

 

Important: Due to the rainy season (from January to April), it is not possible to access Incahuasi Island. However, there is the possibility of visiting the island, if it does not rain on the day of your tour.

Note: This Tour is provided in English.

Just on the outskirts of Uyuni, our first stop is the train graveyard. Here you will see the original locomotives that used to run in Bolivia. Now abandoned, this eerie place carries with it plenty of history. Your guide will explain how these trains used to play an important role in South America’s transport hub

Afterwards, you will visit the small settlement village of Colchani, where you will see the salt miners’ workshop next to the salt flats. Hear stories of the old salt refinery and about the traditional method of table salt production. Here you will learn how they extract, refine and package the salt. You will also see handicrafts made of salt and textiles made of llama and alpaca.

Next you will be taken to the main highlight, the great Salt Flats of Uyuni (Salar de Uyuni)! The first thing you’ll notice are the big piles of salt (pyramids of salt), and then you will see the 'eyes of the salt'. These are big holes in the salt flat where the water below this dead lake come out due to high pressure
