San Pedro de Atacama, Chile to Laguna Colorada, Bolivia
You’ll leave Chile early this morning and travel by minibus to the border. Once you’re in Bolivia you’ll switch to a 4×4 to navigate the incredible lagoons that litter the base of Licancabur Volcano. You’ll journey through a surreal landscape of desert, thermal pools, and geysers. Today ends at the burnt-orange Laguna Colorada where you can witness South America’s 3 flamingo species nestled together.
Journey to San Juan
This morning it’s another early start as you head into the Siloli Desert and cruise past some unusual rock formations. Journeying into higher altitudes, you’ll visit some of the area’s most impressive lagoons before descending into the salt flats near San Juan Town, where you’ll spend the night in a basic lodge. It can be chilly, so be sure to bring plenty of layers.
Bolivian Salt Flats - Uyuni
Today might well be the highlight of this trip, a visit to the Bolivian salt flats. You’ll find remote islands right in the middle of the seemingly endless white expanse. Look a little closer and you can see traces of seashells and coral. Once you’re eyes have been completely dazzled you’ll journey to Uyuni, arriving in the afternoon. You’ll spend the night here in a cosy hotel before continuing your travels.
