Uyuni is the highest and the largest salt desert in the world. It is located south-west off Potosi at an average altitude of 4,000m. The Salt fields of Uyuni and Coipasa are unique, with unusual fauna for this region such as pink and white flamingos, geese, ducks, coots, etc. Our tours (in combination of 4-WD transport and daily hikes) will take us to one of the most impressive landscapes in South America. The best months for visiting this amazing area are from May to November when the dry weather allows traveling without many dangers. In the rainy season (December to April), we can find muddy bays which can block the vehicles. The icy winds, the low temperatures (-10º C to -15º C) and the fact that drinking water is not present in this area, make this beautiful place a dangerous one, if you venture to cross it without an experienced guide.
Note: In our Salar de Uyuni tours, we use comfortable jeeps for maximum four participants (+ guide). Accommodations are in small simple small hotels with rooms for two people and with private facilities.
Note: For safety reasons, we always provide a Spanish/English speaking guide.
