Description

Day 1: First we start with the pick up from the hotel in Uyuni, then we will go to the train cemetery to see the old locomotives. Then we go to the community of Colchani (the gateway to the Salar) where we will find rustic craft workshops and the rustic table salt micro-processor. Continuing with the expedition to the majestic Salar de Uyuni we will make stops to see salt extractions, the eyes of the salt flat and the Playa Blanca Salt Hotel that currently only works as a museum. Later we will visit the most popular island of the Salar located in the middle of the Salar, the Incahuasi Island where we will hike and appreciate large expanses of cacti, sea rock fossils and spectacular 360° views from the viewpoint. At the end of our tour, we headed to our salt lodging to rest. Day 2: The day begins with breakfast at the lodging of salt. We set out to the viewpoint of the Ollague volcano, to be able to appreciate a volcanic desert landscape and the sparse high-Andean vegetation. Then you visit Chiarkota Lagoon, Hedionda Lagoon (named 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 for noon they taste lunch en route. We continue our journey to the Siloli desert where the stone tree (strange rocky shape) is located. We continue our way to Laguna Colorada, which is very striking due to its reddish color. Continuing, we arrive at the town of Huayllajara where we will taste a dinner, and spend the night in a community family lodging (Basic Lodging). Day 3: The day begins very early in the morning with breakfast and departure towards the fumaroles and cracks in the earth through which volcanic lava and sulfurous gases come out. Continuing the tour we will arrive at the hot springs (waters that are beneficial for healing arthritis) where you can take a bath and rest, the water has a temperature of 25 to 32 °C. We continue the journey through the second desert on our Salvador Dalí tour which has an excellent panoramic view and resembles this desert landscape. Afterwards, we arrive at the green lagoon (high mineral content gives it its characteristic color), located at the foot of the Licancabur volcano (5,916 masl). Then we went to the town of Uyuni making stops to visit Villa Mar, Valle de las Rocas, the town of San Cristóbal, its Stone Church and finally we continued to end our tour in the town of Uyuni.
