Travel from La Paz to the spectacular Salar de Uyuni
Experience the surreal beauty and overwhelmingly vast expanse of Salar de Uyuni on this journey to one of South America’s most striking natural landscapes. This is a place where things are put in perspective; where the enormity of the scene highlights the fragility of everything else, where harsh is beautiful, time is obscured and reality seems more like a dream.

Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt lake. Cross the perspective-bending white expanse in a 4WD with a local guide, making several fascinating stops along the way
Uyuni was once a distribution centre for trains carrying minerals to the Pacific. Walk among rusty, abandoned trains in the old Train Cemetery
As you explore the rocky island of Isla Wasi, rising from the salt pans and covered with flowering cacti, you might feel like you've stepped inside a surrealist painting
While this is a 3 day trip, the main highlight of this trip are the salt flats visited on day 2. The rest of the time is spent travelling to and from. For a more in-depth experience, consider our Bolivian Salt Flats & The Andean Desert (GGAD) or the Bolivian Highlights (GGSV) trips.
Reality check. The south of Bolivia is just about the most challenging region to operate trips in South America. It’s remote, isolated and the travel industry and infrastructure are still in its infancy. Sometimes things don't go to plan. For example, an attraction may be closed for the day with no notice or reason. If the possibility of something going wrong or last-minute changes are not an option for you, this may not be the right trip for you.
You'll be spending a lot of time crossing some bumpy surfaces. This is the best way to see the sights in and around Uyuni and is all part of the adventure.
This trip travels to some remote places, as well as locations at high altitude (La Paz is the highest city in the world!). As such, some people can suffer from altitude sickness. If you are, drinking plenty of water and not pushing yourself too hard can help. Please inform your local representative if symptoms don't improve within 24 hours. If possible, arrive into La Paz a few days early to allow yourself time to acclimatise. Please see the ‘Health’ section of the Essential Trip information (ETI) for more important information about altitude sickness.
