Full description
Day 1: Start your tour off at 10:30 am with a drive out to the Uyuni Salt Flats. The first stop is the haunting "Train Graveyard’, which is found on the outskirts of Uyuni. Then visit the small settlement of Colchani (salt miners’ workshops next to the salt flats), there, also find handicrafts made of salt, and textile art manufactured of llama and alpaca wool. These make excellent souvenirs to bring back home. Then Visit Uyuni Salt Flats: * Salt water eyes, *A hotel made completely out of salt which is currently used as a museum, *Flags of the world (Where you can bring yours and put there for free) and a Monument of Dakar racing. Lunch will be served near “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), following, have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cacti, and rock formations made of petrified coral. Next, take time to organize your group for fun perspective- and proportion-distorted photos, set on the blinding white surface of the salt flats, playing around with the scene, you can be sure to take some funny, and memorable shots! Finally, head to a spacious area for the unique experience of seeing a beautiful sunset over the salt flats, spreading its dazzling colors all over the salt flats, enjoying it with a glass of wine. Arrive to Agencha town to have dinner and night stay in the hotel. Day 2: Start off at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast. First stop, Galaxy Caves and then go visit the Chiguana Desert on Uyuni salt flats South side, surrounded by volcanoes such as Ollagüe (5840m). Then, continue along the rocky road that´s called “El Pasito Tuntun”. Later, visit: Cañapa, Hedionda and Chiarcota Lagoons in which flamingoes can be seen. After Lunch, enter to “Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve”, visit the Desert of Siloli at 4550m (the highest and driest in the world), take a picture next to the ‘Rock tree’ (a lava rock formation). Before arriving at the final destination, stop at the overlook point by the Red Lagoon to see more pink flamingos in their natural habitat and admire this intense red-colored lake. Stay the night at a hotel in Huayllajara. Day 3: Get off to an early start around 5:00 a.m. to visit the Sol de Mañana Geyser (5,000m) and walk next to fumaroles and steaming craters filled with boiling pots of mud at 150-200 Cº. then, have the opportunity to take a bath in an open-air Hot spring at 35 Cº water. The next places to appreciate are the Dali Desert where Salvador Dali found his inspiration from boulders sprinkled in the middle of the desert, and then the Green, and white Lagoon (toxic copper water at the foot of the big Licancabur volcano at 6000m, a few kilometers from the Bolivia-Chile border). Then head back to Uyuni passing by beautiful scenery along the way and eating a picnic lunch along the roadside.

Great tour. Guide and driver were both excellent, very knowledgable and experienced but also friendly and funny. Good value for money for 3 jam-packed days. As a tip, bring plenty of cash (at least 300bs) as toilets cost 5bs every time and snacks are not included. Also be prepared for extremely basic accommodation - mixed-sex dorms, very cold, no running water or electricity (basically camping!). Not to let that put you off by any means, just make sure you’re prepared and have enough warm clothes etc. 100% recommend this tour.
