Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt lake. Cross the perspective-bending white expanse in a 4WD with a local guide, making several fascinating stops along the way. Uyuni was once a distribution centre for trains carrying minerals to the Pacific. Walk among rusty, abandoned trains in the old Train Cemetery. Explore the village of Jiria at the foot of the dormant Tunupa volcano. As you explore the rocky island of Isla Wasi, rising from the salt pans and covered with flowering cacti, you might feel like you’ve stepped inside a surrealist painting
Embark on a tour of this arid, immense and complex salt plain area to uncover another side of Bolivia. Visit unique geological formations and spend time visiting the tiny town of Jiria, marvelling at the huge cacti atop Isla Pescado and exploring the Coquesa Caves (and the mummies within). Wander with llamas and enjoy the feeling of remoteness that comes with this otherworldly environment.
