Description

Day 1: Train Cemetery - Colchani - Salt Hotel - Incahuasi Island We will pick you up at your accommodation in Uyuni or from the bus terminal in Uyuni to take our 4x4 vehicle for 6 people. We will leave in the direction of the Uyuni salt flat, passing by the train cemetery and the village of Colchani, where we can buy handicrafts. Once inside the salt flat, we will visit the Salt Museum, and travel to Incahuasi Island, a calcareous rock formation in the center of the salt flat. Here, we will be able to walk the trail, see the giant cactus and have a privileged view of the salt flat from the top of the hill. We will finish the day watching the sunset inside the salt flat, and then transfer to the hostel, where we will have dinner and rest for the next day. Day 2: Ollague Volcano Viewpoint - Siloli Desert - Arbol de Piedra - Lagunas Coloradas The day begins with breakfast at the salt lodge. We leave to the Ollague volcano viewpoint, to appreciate a volcanic desert landscape and the scarce high Andean vegetation. Then we visit Chiarkota lagoon, Laguna Hedionda (name due to the smell of sulfur), Onda lagoon, Ramaditas lagoon, these lagoons are surrounded by flamingos which use them as feeding and resting points during their migratory movements and by midday we have lunch on the road. We continue our journey to the Siloli desert where we find the stone tree (strange rocky form). We continue our way to Laguna Colorada which is very striking for its reddish color. Continuing, we arrive to the town of Huayllajara where we will have dinner and spend the night in a family community lodging (basic lodging). Day 3: Fumarolas - Polques Hot Springs - Laguna Verde -Uyuni We will leave very early in the morning to see the sunrise at the Morning Sun geysers, intermittent sources of water gushing at a temperature of 90 °C, and where we will have the opportunity to take pictures taking advantage of the contrasts of the first lights and steam. We will also visit the Polques hot springs (time for a bath according to the tour times), the Salvador Dalí desert, and the Green Lagoon and the White Lagoon, located at the foot of the Licancabur volcano.
