Uyuni

Jan-March

Transfer time

1 hour flight from Patagonia

The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest and highest salt desert sitting at an altitude of 3,650 meters above sea level. This amazing salt desert covers 4,200 square miles which is about 25 times bigger than the Salt Flats in Utah and is surrounded by high Andean peaks.  To stand in the middle of this amazing place is an experience like no other.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN UYUNI

ISLA DEL PESCADO

The island is an oasis in the middle of Salar de Uyuni, with a unique and isolated ecosystem that is populated by cacti, some of which are up to 30 feet tall (about 10 meters) and more than a thousand years old. Called fish island because the island looks like a huge fish from far away, but should really be called cactus island

JOURNEY SOUTH

Continue south to see two of Bolivia’s natural wonders, the fiery red Laguna Colorado and the greenish-blue coloured Laguna Verde. These spectacular lakes lie about 350 km (215 miles) southwest of Uyuni, across a desert landscape and over rugged dirt tracks and links the small town of San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile

ARBOLES DE PIEDRA

This unusual rock formation looks like a tree. Geologists are baffled by this formation, but they know it was thrown out of one of the nearby volcanoes thousands of years ago.
