Itinerary

  • Arrive at any time. Catch your breath before heading over to an English pub next to the hostel for a few cold ones with your fellow travellers. Get to know each other as you prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.
  • Fly to Uyuni to embark on a three-day 4x4 excursion to the Salar de Uyuni. Get your camera ready because the endless white of the salt flats creates the perfect backdrop for mindbending photo ops. Take a guided walking tour to the top of the sacred Jukil mountaintop for sweeping valley views and a dinner prepared with local ingredients by local ladies. Settle in to your G Adventures-supported community salt-brick bungalow — complete with salt floors and salt furniture.
    Meals: BREAKFAST, DINNER
  • Continue crossing the desert today, admiring the scenery while passing red and blue lagoons and intriguing rock formations along the route. Keep an eye out and you might spot wild llamas, alpacas, and even flamingos deep within the desert.

  • Get a head start on your day by rising early to cover more ground on your journey through the unique landscape of the Salar de Uyuni. Soak in the views of unimaginable scenery including volcanoes and salt lakes before boarding an overnight bus back to La Paz.
