A trip to Bolivia isn't complete without a visit to the Salar de Uyuni and this five-day tour gets you there quickly and efficiently. With a flight to the flats, you'll have more time to explore the incredible landscapes and desert scenery that surrounds it. Gain a true appreciation for the region by staying overnight in a community-owned salt lodge complete with salt floors and furniture. It's the best way to cross this destination off your bucket list.

Fly to Uyuni to enjoy a 3-day 4x4 excursion to the Salar de Uyuni and surrounding desert altiplano, with spectacular scenery. Today you will be heading into the Salar de Uyuni. Our groups like to get creative with photography, as the endless white of the salt flats creates some great depth illusions that are fun to play with in photos. Last stop for the evening is a G Adventures-supported community lodge in a traditional agricultural village in the heart of a desert oasis.
Despite its isolation and challenging climate (cold and blustery most of the year), the town of Uyuni has earned the nickname of Hija Predilecta de Bolivia (Bolivia's Favourite Daughter).
It is also the starting point for our 2-night excursion through the spectacular Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni Salt Flats) in 4x4 vehicles.
Settle into your G Adventures-supported community salt-brick bungalow, complete with salt floors and furniture, after a guided walking tour up to the sacred Jukil mountaintop for sweeping valley views and a dinner of local ingredients prepared by ladies from the community.
Explore the desert altiplano on a 4x4 excursion. Admire the spectacular scenery while passing colourful lagoons and interesting rock formations along the route. Spot wild llamas, alpacas and even flamingos deep within the desert.
Enjoy a final day of exploring the Salar de Uyuni before boarding an overnight bus back to La Paz.
