Day 2 - Uyuni Airstream - South to North

Uyuni, Bolivia

Today you will experience more of the unmatched nature here, passing over the huge sea of white that makes up this 12,000km salt pan. Having crossed over from the desert you will see a stark contrast in the flora and landscapes.

Wake up in this mind-blowing setting, tucking into a delicious breakfast before the campers are packed away and you head on your day's adventure. Marvel at the surreal pentagons of crystalline salt which contrast with the bright blue sky and enjoy many a unique photo opportunity on this vast plain.

After lunch you will encounter Incahuasi Island, a bizarre yet fascinating oasis which is covered in hundreds of columnar cacti which reach up to 12m in height and, in some cases, date back hundreds of years. Enjoy more evening cocktails and dinner at the campers for your final evening.

For Uyuni please remember to bring layers and a very good jacket. Also the sun is really bright so bring plenty of sun screen, hat for the sun and for the night in Uyuni, sunglasses, trekking shoes and gloves. Lately the lowest temperatures are at night or early morning and Uyuni will be the coldest, hotels have heating and the airstreams also have electric blankets.
