Description

Start: This tour will start at 7:00 am at your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama. End: Day 4 at 1:00 pm in the center or bus terminal of San Pedro de Atacama (this end time could be modified due to weather conditions or force majeure, so we recommend that you leave your departure from San Pedro de Atacama for the day after the end date of the tour). Day 1: This day will start with the pick up from your hotel and we will depart by minibus from San Pedro de Atacama to the border with Bolivia, passing through the border offices of Chile and Bolivia. Once at the border, we will change to a 4x4 vehicle for 6 people. On this first day we will visit places of the Bolivian altiplano, such as Laguna Blanca and Laguna Verde, located at the foot of the Licancabur volcano. Then we will visit the Salvador Dali desert, the Polques hot springs, with time to bathe and the geysers of Sol de Mañana, intermittent springs of temperate water. We will finish this day at Laguna Colorada, which is a nesting center for many flamingos. Tonight we will stay at the Villamar lodge. Day 2: After breakfast, we will take the road to Tomas Lakha, where you can see pre-Inca cave paintings. Then we will go to visit Italia Perdida, a place where the volcanic rock took the shape of what seems to be an abandoned city. Then we will go to the Vinto Lagoon and the Catal Lagoon, where you can walk and see the typical fauna of the Bolivian Altiplano. We will then visit the Anaconda Canyon and also the Sora Canyon, before continuing on to the Chiguana Salt Flat and arriving at Colcha K, where we will spend the second night. Day 3: This will be our last day and we will start very early to visit the Salar de Uyuni at sunrise. After this experience we will move to Incahuasi Island, which is a limestone rock formation located in the center of the salt flat that we can walk around and get another perspective of the salt flat. We will continue to the Salt Museum and the town of Colchani, already outside the salt flat. From here we will transfer to Uyuni, passing by the train cemetery, where we will make a brief stop to take pictures. In Uyuni we will say goodbye to our driver-guide, who accompanied us during the previous three days and then we will have free time to have lunch and walk around the city. Afterwards, we will meet our driver who will take us back, stopping in Villamar for dinner and rest. Day 4: This day we will wake up very early to continue our trip back to the border of Chile and Bolivia. Once there, we will change our vehicle to a minibus to be able to return to San Pedro de Atacama.
