Go from Uyuni Salt Flats to Atacama on the Amazing Tayka Route!

On this beautiful tour you will go through the Salar de Uyuni, some deserts, and breathtaking lagoons of colors. You will sleep in comfortable accommodations, better than the average on this area’s tours.

You will get to explore the conventional top sights of the Salar such as the train cemetery, the old Hotel de Sal, or Incahuasi Island. But you will also have the opportunity to visit some less-touristy places like the north shore of the salt plains, the Tunupa volcano, or the mountain Cathedral. Then by seeing to the Chiquini Cave and visiting the mummies of Coquesa, you will be able to learn about the history of the region.

This region has some incredible natural interests such as colored lagoons, canyons, volcanoes, geysers, and thermal waters. You also will reach 5,000 meters above sea level, and be able to admire a stunning flora and fauna.

Highlights

  • See the world-famous Salar de Uyuni
