Bolivian Salt Flats Holiday

Join us in the high Andes for 11 Days of Bolivian Salt Flats Holiday tour in the Bolivian Altiplano! The adventure is waiting for you in this land-locked country of extreme geography. Travel across the largest salt lake in the world, visit a historic mining town and the charming colonial city Sucre. Meet the warm and friendly people of Bolivia as you discover the beautiful contrasts of its countryside. In the remote southern plains bleaks of the altiplano at 3,650 AMSL, the visually stunning Salar de Uyuni salt lake stretches as a blinding white sheet of surreal and ethereal beauty. It’s embossed with hexagonal patterns that seem to be carved by the man. The rain it’s covered with mirror-like water surfaces reflecting the blue sky and clouds dissolving on the horizon. There are two vividly coloured lakes nearby the Laguna Colorada and Laguna Verde, their gemstone hues created by their high mineral content. The red lake is next to hissing geysers while the green one it’s located at Licancabur at 5,868 AMSL.
