SALAR DE UYUNI - SALT FLATS TOURS



Salar de Uyuni Tours are, for many, the highlight of Bolivia. The surreal white salt desert scenery is otherworldly, with the unforgettable colored waters of the Laguna Colorada (Red Lake) and the Laguna Verde (Green Lake). Here you can walk through the Sol de Mañana geothermal field, past bubbling, hot pools of mud and jets of steam, which has been described by many as breath-taking – at nearly 5,000 meters in altitude both literally and figuratively!

We are partnered with the best Bolivian Salt Flats tour companies to ensure our Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats tours are safe and reliable, but please note that this is adventure travel not luxury touring. Your basic needs will be happily provided for in this area, however there are no boutique hotels, gourmet food or WIFI (hopefully with the incredible scenery you will not miss it!). If you love adventure and beautiful landscapes and are not opposed to a little rough travel (simple food and accommodation, rough roads in a 4x4 and limited facilities) then our top-selling Uyuni Salt Flat tours are the perfect excursion for you.

Below you will find our most popular options for Salar de Uyuni tours, including trips with Red Planet Expedition, Perla de Bolivia and Quechua Connection - all of whom provide English-speaking guides. We also offer a budget option with a Spanish-speaking-only guide available in our ‘Standard Plus’ tour options. There are Bolivia Salt Flats tours from one to three days and whilst most of these start in Uyuni, we also offer options like the San Pedro de Atacama Tours, leaving from Chile.

If you would like to combine one of our Uyuni Salt Flat tours with bus, train or flight travel to and from Uyuni, we can arrange that for you as well and you will find various options available in the Bolivia Transport category.

For more extensive information we have the Ultimate Guide to the Salt Flats for you to read with information on how to get to the Salar de Uyuni and what time of year is best to visit.
