You will have the opportunity to learn more about the natural, cultural, historical, and archeological richness of the beautiful city of La Paz, passing through several sites rich in historical value.
We’ll be visiting: Plaza Murillo, the Holy Cathedral, the Government Palace, the San Francisco Church, Mirador Quilli Quilli – where you can grasp a beautiful view of the entire city, the Museum of Gold or Costumbrista, and the Witches Market, in which the local people buy various necessities for the many ritualistic ceremonies in existence in Bolivia – including the ceremonies of Ch’alla and the offerings to Pachamama – «Mother Earth.»
After visiting the urban center of La Paz, we will pass through the Valley of the Moon, visiting also the residential neighborhoods of the Southern zone of the city. The Valley of the Moon gives every visitor a marvelous sensation of having discovered a world that has never been known and or really understood. Due to the many years of sedimentary erosion which have formed a set of amazing stony formations, it can be said that a passage through the Valley of the Moon is about as real a journey to the moon as one can get.
We will take a ride in the Green Cable Cars (Teleférico Verde in Spanish), where you will see a different perspective of the city as you fly through its skies. Throughout this sky adventure, you will capture a breathtaking view of the mountain Illimani, the surrounding mountains, and you will also experience the sweet mixture of modernization and tradition – all while the City of Wonders captures your heart, leaving behind an unforgettable experience.
After the tour of the city, you will have free time until the hour of our transportation to Uyuni.
19:30 pm – There will be a transfer from our office to the La Paz bus terminal.
21:00 pm – There will be a touristic bus that will take us from La Paz – Uyuni (travel overnight).

07:00 am – Arrival to Uyuni (approximate arrival) and transfer to our office where you will have free time until we start our expedition.
11:00 am – We will get started (utilizing a 4×4 Jeep Land Cruiser) on our adventure where we will visit the following touristic attractions:
Train Graveyard – Where we will observe very antique trains and locomotives that date back to the end of the 19th Century; the majority of the trains made their routes with wagons that carried minerals – but, they only lasted for so much time. These trains were part of an industrial past, but now they have been naturally transitioned into a wonderful, but mysterious tourist attraction.
The Village of Colchani – Located on the outskirts of the Uyuni Salt Flats, the village of Colchani is the principal means of entrance to the Salt Flats where we will observe the activity of salt extraction in an artisanal form; the villagers will show us the extraction process which includes the drying, shaping, and bagging of salt for sale, and this process is now dedicated to the making of artisanal pieces which are made of different salt molds and textiles.
Salt Mounds – The salt mounds which you will be able to observe are little pyramids of salt; the villagers of Colchani make these mounds to dry the salt and then later transport them to the village to be processed. In addition to seeing these mounds, we will also pass what is called the “Ojos de Sal” which are different eruptions of water within the Salt Flats that offer a clear view of what is found beneath.
Salt Hotel – Located in the heart of the salt flats, this famous hotel is entirely made of blocks of salt; literally – from the inside and out – the walls, the floor, the beds, the tables, the chairs – everything is adorned in salt. The hotel hasn’t functioned as a hotel for a multitude of years, but it is definitely a wonderful museum to visit.
Incahuasi Island (also known as Isla del Pescado) – Located likewise in the middle of the Salt Flats, Incahuasi Island is a rocky formation in which is found a multitude of gigantic cacti with altitudes topping more than 10 meters; from the top of the island, the entire Salt Flats can be seen – a beautiful sight.
After visiting Incahuasi Island, we will have lunch and then continue to enjoy the dazzling white salt desert.
AFTERNOON – We will make our way to the village of San Juan where we will spend the night in family homes (basic refuges).
Included: Shared transport (4×4 Jeep – Land Cruiser), lunch and dinner, tour guide + accommodation in family homes (basic refuges).



07:00 – 07:30 am – After breakfast, we will continue our adventure until we reach the Red Lagoon; during the trip, we will travel to the small Chiguana Salt Flats which are still in formation, and then we will stop to observe from a distance the active volcano of Ollague. We will also visit the lagoons of Cañapa, Hedionda, Chiarcota, and Honda where you will have the opportunity to see a myriad of beautiful flamingos. During the middle of the day, we will stop to have lunch – and, in the afternoon, we will pass by the Siloli Desert where we will see an interesting rock formation called Arbol de Piedra which is a peculiar-looking rock that resembles the shape of a tree. Passing the interesting rock formation, we will continue our way until we reach the Red Lagoon which is located in Eduardo Avaroa Wildlife National Park. The Red Lagoon’s characteristics are a sight to see; the red color of its waters are due to its sediments and also the pigments of different types of algae and plankton – but, it doesn’t always maintain the same color depending on a variety of ever-changing characteristics (lighting, climate, etc.). Likewise, you can see many Andean flamingos.
AFTERNOON – Continuing for about 15 minutes, we will arrive to Huayllajara where we will stay the night in family homes (basic refuges).
Included: Shared transport (4×4 Jeep – Land Cruiser), lunch and dinner, tour guide + accommodation in family homes (basic refuges).



05:00 am – Early in the morning, we will set out to appreciate the Geysers – geothermal fountains within the volcanic zone of Sol de Mañana (Morning Sun in English); this place is the highest point in the route at about 5,000 meters above sea level and the cold is intense. After visiting the Geysers, we will continue to a place called Polques de Chalviri where you will be able to take a relaxing bath in the thermal baths found within the place; we will also have breakfast there and then head past the desert of Salvador Dali until we reach the White and Green Lagoons (4,350 meters above sea level) which are located at the foot of the Licancabur Volcano. The White and Green Lagoons’ characteristics are a sight to see as well; the green color of their waters are due to the high content of magnesium that is characteristic of the geographical formations of the area, but the intensity of the color depends upon the wind strength. The Licancabur Volcano is the natural milestone that divides Bolivia and Chile at the border. After stopping at the White and Green Lagoons, we will return to Uyuni, having lunch along the way, also passing through the Valley of the Rocks – as well as the villages of Villa Alota, Kulpinaka, and San Cristóbal; passing through these places, we will be able to see a great quantity of llamas and vicunas.
AFTERNOON – We will return to Uyuni.
20:00 pm – Transport via a comfortable bus from Uyuni – La Paz (travel overnight).
Included: Shared transport (4×4 Jeep – Land Cruiser), breakfast and lunch, tour guide + touristic bus ticket from Uyuni – La Paz.



06:30 am – Arrival to the La Paz bus terminal (approximate arrival) and accommodation in the selected hotel (we will need to wait until the hour in which reception will allow us to check in).
