The Salar de Uyuni
The Uyuni salt flats stretch over a span of 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi) in southern Bolivia.
The Uyuni salt flats in southern Bolivia are the world's largest salt flats. The salar hosts prehistoric lakes and plants, flamingoes, culpeos (Andean foxes), vizcacha (rabbits), and more. On a Uyuni tour, visit the salt flats and even stay at the Hotel de Sal, a hotel made completely out of salt! Also visit a salt factory, walk around Incahuasi Island covered in cacti, a train cemetery and volcanoes. Combine our Uyuni tours with an excursion to the Atacama Desert to enjoy beautiful arid landscapes from Bolivia and Chile.Customize your Uyuni Salt Flats Tours

While on one of our Uyuni Salt Flats tours, you can go on a 4x4 off-road vehicle adventure, where your driver will show you the immense salt flats and some of the surrounding shrubbery, wildlife, lagoons, and hills. You can also have some fun taking "perspective" shots with your camera.
Uyuni and the salt flats can easily be visited from La Paz or included into a tour that connects Bolivia with Argentina. Another great way to visit Uyuni is from Chile via the San Pedro de Atacama, another fascinating desert region.
