Our Pro Guides:
Lagoons and Volcanoes of the Antiplano

We have organized a fascinating tour through the most evocative landscapes of the Salar and also inside the Eduardo Avaroa" National Reserve:

Colorful lagoons, flamingos, volcanoes, geysers, deserts and highland fauna will make this trip an unforgettable visual experience.

We will visit the Uyuni Salt Flat in the season of reflections, where it becomes the largest natural mirror in the world with its more than 12,000 km2 of extension, taking pictures of the sunset and a spectacular night tour in the Salar for Astrophotography.

We will reach the border with Chile on a 4×4 truck tour through the southern part of the Bolivian Bolivian Altiplano.

Day 1. Arrival - La Paz

We will be waiting for your arrival at the international airport of La Paz, then we will go to the hotel and rest from the long trip.

At 19h, we will meet the whole group in the lobby of the hotel, to enjoy a great dinner in a good restaurant in the city.

Rest and acclimatization at the altitude of La Paz (3.640 mts).

 

Day 2. La Paz

After breakfast, we will start a tour of this beautiful city, where we will visit the famous historical center where we will take street and urban pictures.

We will take the cable car network and admire the majestic snow-capped Illimani (6,460 mts) that will follow us vigilant and will be the model for sunsets from amazing panoramic points.

 

Days 3 and 4. Uyuni Salt Flats

We arrive to the city of Uyuni very early in the morning and after the installation in our Hotel, our adventure will begin visiting the emblematic attractions such as: the train cemetery, the town of Colchani, the water eyes and we will enter inside the beautiful Salar de Uyuni.

Once at the location we will make a great photographic tour taking advantage of the twilight hours waiting for the departure of the Milky Way, which will be reflected under our feet along with other celestial bodies of the universe.

The Salar de Uyuni is one of the best places on earth for Astrophotography: the strategic location, the altitude and the low light pollution, make the Salar a wonderful viewing platform to record the celestial bodies of the universe.

 

Days 5,6,7. Lagoons and volcanoes reserve

If the Salar de Uyuni will be the "highlight" of our trip, then wait until you see the tour we have through the lagoons and volcanoes of the National Reserve "Eduardo Avaroa". If the Salar de Uyuni will give us the feeling of being on another planet, then the tour in the Reserve will confirm that feeling: colorful lagoons, volcanoes, geysers, deserts, rocky forests and a highland fauna that will surprise us in every kilometer of the tour.

We will have nights for astrophotography at the edge of the lagoons and volcanic rock forests.

In our tour through the reserve we will pay particular attention to the beautiful Laguna Colorada. With its more than 60 km2 it is the largest of the altiplano and its waters are home to thousands of Andean flamingos. We will have the possibility to enjoy panoramic views of the volcanoes that surround this fantastic place.

Day 8. Return to Uyuni

Returning to the city of Uyuni we will visit the valley of volcanic rocks, ready to conclude our tour with a flourish, enjoying the last sunset in the Salar de Uyuni.

A night of the most delicious artisan pizza in Bolivia will be the final frame for a last night of photos with the Milky Way.
