Uyuni Salt Flats, Bolivia
Airstream Uyuni

These Airstream campers offer guests one of the most incredible ways to explore the surreal and unique landscapes of Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt pan and one of the most breathtaking landscapes. The indulgence of being completely alone in the vast empty space of the Uyuni salt pan makes for a truly unforgettable experience.

The surface of the pan itself is cracked into a billion naturally occurring hexagon shapes. Its appearance can change dramatically dependent on the season: in dry conditions the surface can look like snow or ice while at night it glows with reflected moonlight; when wet it takes on the appearance of a colossal mirror fringed by distant, snow-capped peaks and islands strewn with giant cacti.

Each Airstream sleeps two (with the option of a third traveller on a sofa-bed) and is equipped with everything you might need: a bathroom, toiletries, shower with hot water, hair dryer, heater and air-conditioning, a comfortable queen-size bed (or twin beds) with electric blankets, plush seating and a complimentary fully-stocked mini bar. Due to the altitude of Salar de Uyuni, there is even an oxygen tank available to help you breathe easy.

It is towed behind a 4x4 and followed by the “teardrop”, a smaller supporting wagon that carries a kitchen and other necessities, which vanishes after dinner, taking chef, driver and guide off to stay nearby at the edge of the salt pan, and leaving you with just a radio and satellite phone in case of an emergency.

Meals are simple but delicious and served under an umbrella in the middle of the desert or at a small dining table inside the Airstream. Breakfast might include freshly squeezed orange and pineapple juices and sweet papayas served alongside fresh coffee, and dinner a juicy roast llama steak, served with some quality Bolivian red wine from the southern region of Tarija.

Having a mobile base makes it easier to explore the area and allows your time to be flexible. Throughout the day, you are escorted on incredible and intrepid excursions to some of the most fascinating and varied landscapes in all of Latin America by 4X4 SUV. At night, you’ll return to the base camp of your Airstream for sundowner cocktails and cosy evenings underneath an unforgettable blanket of stars.

Enjoy cycling or trekking across remote parts of the salt flats, visiting local communities or climbing the volcanoes at its edges. Admire ancient villages with colonial churches and vibrantly coloured quinoa  plantations, trek to 800-year-old Aymara fortresses made of red rock, and visit chullpas, pre-Incan tombs, with well-preserved and intact mummies. Watch low-flying flamingos who come to the pan to breed, and spot domesticated llamas and alpacas, as well as wild vicuñas. At night there is a telescope, and depending on the night and the clarity of the sky you can gasp at the rings of Saturn in one of the southern hemisphere’s most pristine skies.

Top tip:

Bring a tripod if you are a keen photographer – weather permitting, you’ll have the opportunity to photography some of the most spectacular starry skies in the world! Alternatively, ask about using the telescope for up close views of the constellations and planets.
