Salar de Uyuni & the Altiplano

Bleak, eerie and surreal; Bolivia’s Southern Altiplano is a landscape without compare, a captivating, mysterious land of bubbling geysers, giant cacti and rainbow-colored lagoons dotted with flamboyantly pink flamingos. Marooned in this otherworldly landscape, the glistening white salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni are a mesmerising vision, their endless expanse stretching out to the horizon.

This horizon melts away at times, the blinding white surface creating a mirror when wet so the sky and the earth become one. At other times it cracks into billions of hexagons, becoming a dry landscape devoid of life, bar an occasional oasis of cacti. Explore the remote corners of this unearthly landscape by bike, 4x4 or on foot, visiting ancient villages, pre-Incan tombs, and at night, lying back under a blanket of impossibly bright stars.
