Salar de Uyuni Tours

Uyuni Salt Flat tours are arguably the most popular thing to do on a tour of Bolivia. The Uyuni salt flats stretch over a span of 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi) in southern Bolivia. They are the world’s largest salt flats with plenty of wildlife. The Salar hosts prehistoric lakes and plants, flamingoes, culpeos (Andean foxes), and vizcacha (rabbits). While on one of our Uyuni Salt Flats tours, you can go on a 4×4 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. At night, stay at the Hotel de Sal, a hotel made completely out of salt! Other excursions include visiting a salt factory, walking around Incahuasi Island covered in cacti, exploring a train cemetery, and seeing the volcanoes. Combine our Uyuni tours with an Atacama Desert trip to enjoy beautiful arid landscapes from Bolivia and Chile. All our Uyuni salt flat tours are customizable!
