Tour Plan

Day 1: SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA - TRANSFER TO HITO CAJÓN- NATIONAL PARK EDUARDO AVAROA- LAKE LAGUNA VERDE- LICANCABUR VOLCANO- GEYSERS- RED LAGOON - UYUNI

Transport from your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama to Hito Cajón border post. Visit the Eduardo Avaroa National Andean Fauna Reservation (REA), which covers an area of 7147 km2 and is south west of the city of Potosí, in the Province of Sud Lípez. Its extraordinary fauna contains singular species that have adapted to the extreme conditions in the region. Some of them are in danger of extinction. Its lakes, salt flats, volcanoes, snow-capped mountains, plains, thermal springs, rivers rich in algae and plankton, geothermal springs, flora and landscape in general give this zone its unique character and make it the perfect place in which to forget your daily routine and immerse yourself in the natural world.

Transport to Green Lagoon, whose waters are as green as a giant emerald. From the shore you can see the majestic beauty of Licancabur volcano (5865 m), and the dazzling colour of the lake at sunset is caused by its high magnesium content. Then a visit to the Sol de Mañana geyser, fumaroles and volcanic pools that form a spectacular sight in the strong wind that gives the visit seem more of an adventure. This area covers 1 square kilometre and is on the road to Chalviri salt flats. You can see boiling lava in the craters and the fumaroles throw out a mixture of hot water and steam to a height of 80 to 100 metres. A primitive landscape of boiling mud and lava, a throwback to the beginnings of time. This geothermal region is located at 4900 m.a.s.l.

An hour from the geysers we come to Red Lagoon: covering 60 square kilometres at an altitude of 4278 m, its beauty takes one's breath away. Its waters are reddish and it is home to flocks of pink-feathered tokokoo flamingos; the similarly pink jututu and chururu, whose plumage is almost white. The birds' synchronised movements seem like an improvised ballet that you can watch for hours. Vicuñas, llamas and vizcachas can also be seen here. Box lunch en route. Arrival at Uyuni, dinner and overnight stay in a local hotel in Uyuni.

Day 2: UYUNI SALT FLATS – ISLA PESCADO

You will be picked up from the hotel for a fabulous excursion to Uyuni salt flats and Isla Pescado. Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat, on Bolivia's Andean plateau, and covers an area of 12 000 square kilometres. The deep silence makes your heart beat faster and plunges you into a surreal landscape where the sky is reflected by the land, playing with your sense of perspective and imagination. Lunch at Isla Pescado, also called Inkawasi, an oasis surrounded by islands full of algae formations and fossils. It is covered by thousands of giant cacti, some more than a hundred years old, growing more than 12 metres high. The landscape of Uyuni merges into the horizon, making this an ideal place for serious photographers. Return to your hotel. Dinner and overnight stay night in an authentic salt hotel on the edge of the salt flats.
