Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depending on the option selected at booking, greet your guide at your Uyuni hotel or another central meeting spot. Board an air-conditioned coach destined for the unique Cementerio de Trenes — an expanse in which colossal, abandoned steam trains reside. Then, take a short sightseeing tour of Uyuni and its enticing food market before continuing to the town of Colchani.

In Colchani, you’ll visit the quaint Museo de la Llama y la Sal (The Museum of the Lama and the Salt) and a salt processing plant before heading to the Salar de Uyuni — the world’s largest salt flat.

IN a 4WD, you’ll cruise on the blinding white carpet of salt and admire one of Bolivia’s most popular attractions. Then, revitalize with lunch and continue to the Tunupa volcano, a beacon of imposing power and vibrancy.

After a short tour of traditional Bolivian village, Coqueza, you’ll ascend to a viewpoint on the Tunupa volcano and marvel at panoramic views of the seemingly interminable salt flats. Return to land, browse the ancient funeral pots of Chantani and then conclude your tour by watching the sunset at Salar de Uyuni.

After witnessing the slow spectacle of sunset, return to your original departure point in Uyuni.
