Day 1: Uyuni – Salt Hostel Villa Martin
You will leave for your trip at 10:00AM and begin the tour with a stop at the train cemetery of Bolivia, where you can see some of the oldest trains in the country. You will then move on to see Colchane Town, the Salt Museum, The Salt Mines and ‘Eyes of the Salt Flat’, outlets for underground rivers in the flats. After this comes Incahuasi Island, a formation of rocks found in the middle of the Salt Flat where you will have stunning views all around. Afterwards, the journey continues into Cactus Valley, and the final stop is after a short 30 minute walk in the Salt Flats where you will see the best panoramic views of the flat. This night you will stay in Villa Martin in a hostel made of salt!
Day 2: Salt Hostel – Colorado Lagoon
Day 2 begins with a trip to the Sora Canyon, where you will be able to see lots of diverse animals such as llamas and small deer. You will visit the Black Lagoon (Laguna Negra), Laguna Hedionda, Honda, and Siloli Desert. You will continue onwards to a point where you can see the Rock Tree (Árbol de Piedra), a great rock with volcanic origin that looks like a tree. After this, you will continue on to Colorado Lagoon, which is a nesting ground at times for over 30,000 flamencos! In the evening you will stay in a basic refugio near Colorado Lagoon.
Day 3: Colorado Lagoon – San Pedro de Atacama
On this day you will either continue on to San Pedro de Atacama, or you can also decide to return to Uyuni (just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a return trip). If you continue to Chile you will begin this day by visiting the Geysers of the Morning Sun – incredible natural spouts of steam that sprout from the ground at over 90°C. Here you can also see pools bubbling from the heat of the lava beneath! After this you visit the Dalí Desert, named after Salvador Dalí as it features rocks which are reminiscent of the style he uses in many of his paintings. From here you continue to White Lagoon and Green Lagoon, both located at the foot of the impressive Licancabur Volcano. Finally, you will arrive at the border of Hito Valley at 10:00AM, where the transfer into Chile will continue. You can expect to arrive in San Pedro at 13:00PM.
You can change money into Chilean Pesos in San Pedro de Atacama or in Uyuni on the trip. It is highly recommended that you change all the money you will need to use either in Uyuni or before you leave your country of departure. If you need to change cash upon arrival in San Pedro, go to the street Toconao, south of Caracoles and you will find numerous casas de cambio which all have competitive exchange rates.
