Leave for 3 unforgettable days in the Uyuni region. After discovering the South Lipez, famous for its lagoons, geysers and unique landscapes, we will pass in the heart of the largest salt desert in the world: The Salar of Uyuni!
Uyuni - Laguna Colorada
We pick you up at your hotel and leave for the beginning of your tour in South Lipez. For this first day we will start with several hours of driving in the heart of the pampas of the region, then we will discover the valley of rocks before finishing with two of the most beautiful lagoons of the region: the Laguna Verde and the Laguna Colorada.
Night near the Laguna Colorada.
Laguna Colorada - Chuvica
Today we leave for a second day of driving that will take us through the wonderful landscapes of the south Lipez and will lead us more particularly to the heart of the Siloli desert known for its rocky formations. We will have the opportunity to stop at the most famous of these formations: “l’Arbol de Piedra”.
At the end of our itinerary we will arrive in Chuvica where we will spend the night.
Big day! Today you will discover the largest salt desert in the world: the Uyuni Salt Desert.
We will stop at the cactus island and then you will have all the time you need to stop wherever you want and enjoy this incredible natural space!
Back to Uyuni and end of our services.
The climate varies greatly according to the regions travelled through. From April to November, the sky is clear, although light rains are always possible. In altitude, it is pleasant during the day and cold at night. So bring warm clothes, even if you can walk around in a T-shirt during the day. Beware of the sun, which is strong at high altitudes, and bring a hat, sun cream and sunglasses.
No visa is required for stays of less than 90 days. You must travel with a passport that is still valid for 6 months after your stay.
When visiting high altitude areas, adverse effects such as headaches, nausea, insomnia and fatigue affect some people. However, the trip is designed to allow our body to adapt gradually (increase in red blood cells).
All major cities have modern private clinics with care comparable to what we have in Europe. However, you have to pay on the spot and then ask for reimbursement from your health insurance company.
We advise you to check whether your insurance covers medical costs in the countries you visit and if not, to seek reimbursement. Repatriation insurance is compulsory.
Currency / Credit Cards
Dollars and euros are accepted in the shops of the big cities. There are exchange houses everywhere. However, it is better not to carry large sums of money with you.
Credit cards are accepted in all ATMs (visa, mastercard, diners, american express). The commission of the bancomat is between 5 and 10USD.
In the service sector, it is normal to leave a tip when you are happy with the service. Between 5 and 10% of the value of the service is usual.
Whenever you travel, remember to keep fit. Even for “Discovery” trips, by preparing yourself physically you will adapt more easily to the altitude and enjoy your discoveries.
For trekking trips, develop your endurance by running or practicing your endurance several times a week.
