"Bolivia feels less developed, wilder, even more dramatic than its neighbours"

Salar de Uyuni Holidays

The Salar de Uyuni salt flats, south of the town of Uyuni, are part of the Altiplano that reaches from Bolivia across into northern Chile, and are the largest in the world. At over 12,000 sq km, this breathtaking and unusual landscape high up in the Andes is truly spectacular. Sunglasses and sun cream are essential as you journey by four-wheel drive across a blinding white salt crust, bordered by azure blue skies and small islands dotted with giant cacti, to great expanses of red desert, where mineral rich and vividly coloured lakes support flocks of rare James’ flamingos.

Getting to Salar de Uyuni

Within Bolivia the most popular ways of reaching the Salt Flats are either by flying from La Paz down to Uyuni or travelling overland from Sucre, one of Bolivia's most charming cities with a stop en route in Potosi. The Salar de Uyuni can also be reached overland from San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile, which is an incredible journey through a world of clear blue skies, smouldering volcanoes, snow-capped mountain peaks and brightly coloured lakes.
