The service starts at 7:00 p.m., with the pick up of customers from the Hotel in  La Paz in private mobility, to move to the bus terminal and take the tourist bus that will take us to Uyuni for 8 hours. Upon arrival, you will be waiting for a private mobility to take us to a cafe to enjoy a delicious breakfast, and also an option to take a hot shower. We start at about 10:00am, in our 4wd car and a professional guide, and visit the train cemetery before heading to the Great Salt Lake. Meet on the way the people of Colchani, where we will see an artisan salt processing plant. Visit then the Sal Flats, to know about waterholes and to observe how the salt is being extracted.  Then proceed to Incahuasi Island (known as Fish Island) where you can observe the famous giant cactus, and you can enjoy a delicious lunch. Lunch will be served in the middle of the Great Salt Lake, at the convenient time. Then we go to Coquesa and visit the cave of the mummies, which is located on the slopes of the Tunupa volcano, where you can see a beautiful landscape and enjoy the beauty of the Great Uyuni Salt Flats. Later, before returning to Uyuni, observe the sunset accompanied by a special toast at the largest salt lake of the world!  Arrival in Uyuni is approximately 7:00pm. At the end of the tour of the Salar de Uyuni, after a short break, our private mobility will transport you to the bus terminal to take our bus back to La Paz.
