Day 1 La Paz - Uyuni - Colchani - Uyuni Salt Flats (Incahuasi Island) - Candelaria (717 km)
We will be picked up in La Paz and than fly to Uyuni. We will start by visiting the Uyuni's 'train graveyard' to see the first locomotives in Bolivia. Then we will visit the small village of Colchani to visit a salt factory where they process the salt mined from Uyuni. Next we will continue to the great salt flats of Uyuni, take photos as cruising along the vast white expanse of salt and visit a hotel made completely of salt. After lunch, we will visit Incahuasi (Fish Island) where we will have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cactus and rock formations made of petrified coral. Enjoy the stunning sunset at Pia Pia Island, over the salt flat before spending the night at the village of Ajencha in a salt hotel.
Day 2 Chiguana Desert - Lagoons - Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve - Red Lagoon Sol de Manana Geyser (210 km)
Start off at 7:00 am for breakfast at the hotel and then head toward the Chiguana Desert, it is surrounded by volcanoes, such as the Ollague Volcano (5840m), one that is still active, and that can be seen from the lookout. Our next stop is at the beautiful Andean lagoons, inhabited by 3 species of Andean flamingos. Visit the Desert of Siloli at 4550m (the highest and driest in the world) and take a photo next to the 'Rock tree', a lava rock formation. Before arriving to our final destination today, we will stop at the overlook point by the Red Lagoon to see more pink flamingos and admire this intense red-colored lake, before spending the night at a shared family lodging.
Day 3 Sol de Manana Geyser - Dali Desert - Uyuni - La Paz (901 km)
We will walk alongside fumaroles and steaming craters, visit Sol de Manana Geyser. Continue to the open air hot springs. Then head toward the Dali Pampas, where Salvador Dali found his inspiration from boulders sprinkled in the middle of the desert, and then to the Green Lagoon (toxic copper water at the foot of the big Licancabur volcano at 6000m, a few kilometers from the Bolivia-Chile border). After that, we will go back to Uyuni to eat a picnic lunch along the roadside. We will go by the Valley of the Rocks, the Alota settlement, and the San Cristobal Village and get back to Uyuni by 6:30 pm. Then we will be transferred to the airport to catch return flight to La Paz.
