Itinerary

Beginning: Day 1 at 10:00 am at your hotel in Uyuni.
End: Day 3 at 1:00 pm at the bus station or downtown San Pedro de Atacama.

Day 1: We will pick you up at your hotel to leave Uyuni taking the direction to the salt flat, even though, first we will visit the train cemetery outside the city. Just before entering to the Uyuni Salt Flat, we will pass by the town of Colchani, where we will have access to different craftwork, mainly made with salt. After that, we will travel through the salt flat in our vehicle, passing by the Dakar Monument and the Salt Museum, until getting to the Incahuasi Island. This rock formation has a lot of giant cactus and we can get to the top of it going over the marked track. From the highest part of the island, we will have a very good perspective of the greatness of the salt flat. After that, we will wait the sunset to see the phenomenon in a privileged place, before leaving the salt flat to San Juan del Rosario, where we will have dinner and rest our first night.

Day 2: We will leave early from San Juan del Rosario to continue the route through San Agustín and Villa Alota. This is because we will visit the tourist attractions of this part of the mountain range, beginning by the Anaconda Canyon. Here, we will stop in the viewpoint and we will take some pictures of the particular shape that has the river in the bottom of the canyon. Then, we will visit the Vinto Lagoon and Italia Perdida, a place full of rocks with different shapes and sizes in which we will be able to take varied pictures. After that, we will go to Huayllajara, where we will have our dinner and then we can get some rest of the itinerary of the day.

Day 3: We will leave early in the morning to visit the Colorada Lagoon. Here we will stop a moment to enjoy how quit is this landscape and be able to take some picture to have a good memory of this moment. We will also pass by the Sol de Mañana Geysers and the Polques Hot Springs. The route includes the visit to the Blanca and Verde lagoons. Then, we will continue to the border with Chile, to make the procedures and continue to San Pedro de Atacama, where we will end our tour.

*The ending time of this activity might be modified due to weather conditions, reason why our recommendation is you to buy your departure ticket to leave San Pedro de Atacama as late as possible, after the return time from Uyuni, or leave your trip for the next day after the end of the tour.


Altiplano winter

During the months from January to April, it takes place the weather phenomenon known as Altiplano winter, rain season in the central Andes. Due to this, is is possible that the described itinerary is modified as follows:

  • The first night is not in a hostel in San Juan del Rosario, but in a hostel in Uyuni.
  • The Incahuasi Island is not visited because this is in the center of the salt flat, place where there is the largest amount of water during the rainy season.

Force majeure changes

These are reference itineraries. The route to get to the salt flat, the places visited, the indicated order and the end time will always be subject to changes according to weather conditions, road conditions, demonstrations and accommodations availability. The confirmation of the itinerary is obtained in the briefing that the local supplier gives a day before the beginning of the activity, which does not mean that it will not be modified due to the happening of some of the situations already mentioned once the tour has already begun.

Cancellation policy

  • If you cancel with a 15-day notice before the beginning of the tour, we will make a full refund of what you paid for the booking.
  • If you cancel with less than a 15-day notice before the beginning of the tour, we will not make any refund of what you paid for the booking.
