3 Days 2 Nights
Begin an unforgettable trip through almost 7,500 square miles (12,000 km²) of fantastic landscapes of salt and surrealist landscapes of deserts and colored lagoons of the Eduardo Avaroa Reserve.
The dazzling white mantle of the Salar de Uyuni resembles an immense glacier. In winter (dry season from May to November), when the surface hardens, geometric figures formed by the salt particles agglomerated into polygons appear. In summer (rainy season from December to March) the salt desert is transformed into a giant mirror that blends into the sky of the purest blue you’ve ever seen before.
