The salt tour is an experience of an off-road thrill as you travel through the largest salt desert in the world. In this salt tour, you will enjoy a picnic in the middle of the salt flats and you will visit the train cemetery with amazing 19th & 20th-century steam locomotives.

Also, you will have the opportunity to take a hike through Incahuasi Island and see its beautiful giant cacti.

UYUNI SALT TOUR FULL DAY – ITINERARY

UYUNI NIGHT TOUR ITINERARY

First, you will be picked up from the lobby of your hotel between 21:30 hrs. – 22:00 hrs. to start your Uyuni Night Tour. Then, you will be transferred to the Uyuni Salt Flats to enjoy an evening with the stars like you’ve never seen before.

Prepare for a spectacle of kaleidoscopic reflections which are produced at night. For an even more spectacular evening, consider going during the rainy season (December through March) when the salar is flooded and the sky reflects off it like a mirror.  The feeling is one of walking in space amongst the stars.  After this experience, you will be returned to your hotel (booked on your own).

IMPORTANT: This is not a stand alone tour. It is complementary to a full day tour to the Uyuni Salt Flats.

TOP BOLIVIA DESTINATIONS:

1. Uyuni Salt Flats

The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt desert at nearly 12,000 square kilometers (7,456 sq mi), and sits at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft). It boats an extraordinary flatness and it is as deep as a few meters of salt crust. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. It is also a photographer’s paradise for its natural flatness and beautiful landscape.

2. Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve

The Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve in southwestern Bolivia is the country’s most visited protected area. Located at an altitude between 4,200 m (13,800 ft) and 5,400 m (17,700 ft). It extends over an area of 714,745 hectares (1,766,170 acres) and encompasses glacial salt lakes stained bright red or emerald green by microorganisms or mineral deposits. It beckons with its snowcapped volcanic peaks, frozen, high-altitude deserts, and strange rock formations similar to those found in Dalí paintings.

Created primarily for the protection of birds that inhabit its different lagoons, it protects part of the Central Andean dry puna (oligothermic) ecoregion. Its major attractions are erupting volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, lakes, fumaroles, mountains and its three endemic species of flamingos.

3. La Paz & Moon Valley

Founded in 1548 by Spanish conquistadors, La Paz is Bolivia’s third most-populous city, the seat of the country’s government and the capital of the La Paz Department. It is located on the western side of Bolivia, nestled between the Andes Mountains, at an altitude of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level. It also has the distinction of being the highest capital in the world. In La Paz, the Aymara culture and colonial-period influences are very much present even to this day.

Moon Valley is only a short drive from La Paz, yet boasts an amazing display of rock erosion patterns like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

4. Tiwanaku

Tiwanaku (Spanish: Tiahuanaco or Tiahuanacu) is a Pre-Columbian archaeological site in western Bolivia. The city of Tiwanaku, capital of a powerful pre-Hispanic empire that dominated a large area of the southern Andes and beyond, reached its apogee between 500 and 900 AD. Its monumental remains testify to the cultural and political significance of this civilization, which is distinct from any of the other pre-Hispanic empires of the Americas.

5. Lake Titicaca & Sun Island

Nestled between the Andean borders of Peru and Bolivia is the highest navigable lake in the world. Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the Inca Sun god. Also the place from where the founders of the Inca Empire, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo, emerged. It is home to many ruins on its many islands, and a place of tranquility and beauty.

Isla del Sol (Sun Island) is an island in the southern part of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. There are over 80 ruins on Sun Island. Most of these date to the Inca period during the 15th century AD. Many hills on the island contain agricultural terraces, which adapt steep and rocky terrain to agriculture. Among the ruins on the island are the Sacred Rock, a labyrinth-like building called Chinkana, Kasa Pata, and Pilco Kaina.

6. Sucre & Potosi

The Historic City of Sucre, located in central-south Bolivia, was the first capital of Bolivia. Its many well-preserved 16th-century religious buildings illustrate the blending of local architectural traditions with styles imported from Europe. (UNESCO)

The City of Potosí was the world’s largest industrial complex for its modern extraction of silver ore in the 16th century. It was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the Americas until its mines were depleted. Today, Potosí is worth visiting for its beautiful churches, many decorated in silver, and its ornate colonial architecture.

Sucre Bolivia

7. Santa Cruz

Situated in the tropical lowlands, at an altitude of 1,365 feet (416m), it is Bolivia’s most cosmopolitan and modern city. However, it also preserves its colonial charm and traditions, and it boasts a flourishing artistic circuit. Day tours to the Jesuit Missions towns, the Samaipata Fort, among others are also available from Santa Cruz.

Plaza 24 de Septiembre in Santa Cruz, Bolivia

8. Madidi National Park

Madidi National Park is one of the largest protected areas in the world. It is located in the upper Amazon River basin of Bolivia, and has an area of 18,958 square km. Madidi has more than 20,000 species and over 1,200 bird species, representing 14% of the world’s bird species.

9. Yungas

Yungas is situated in the northern region of Bolivia. It is mostly known for the road that connects the town of Coroico to the city of La Paz. The “World’s Deadliest Road”, is a phrased coined by the Inter-American Development Bank in 1995 as the road ascends to nearly 4,650m  (15,260 ft.), it is mostly single-lane and offers exquisite views of the Rainforest as it descends from the Altiplano.  It boasts cliff drops of nearly 600 meters (2,000 ft.), which excites thrill-seekers, including mountain-bikers from all over the world.

SAMAIPATA BOLIVIA FULL DAY TOUR – OVERVIEW

1. There are many carvings in the hill, and archaeologists believe it was a ceremonial center of the old town in the 14th–16th centuries.

2. The administrative and residential district was in the area south of the hill. The unique testimony to pre-Hispanic traditions and beliefs is an enormous sculptured rock located in the town below. There is not something similar to this in the Americas.

In this full day tour, you will visit the pre-Hispanic ceremonial fortress, the surrounding waterfall caves & the town’s museum.

SAMAIPATA BOLIVIA FULL DAY TOUR – ITINERARY

2 DAY LAKE TITICACA TOUR & TIAHUANACO RUINS – OVERVIEW

The Lake Titicaca Tour allows you to see the contrast to the beliefs of the Aymara culture and the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana. You can walk to Cerro Calvario to have a panoramic view of the lake, surrounding mountains, and the colorful Copacabana town.

Besides, you will visit the Sun Island, where there are several structures made by the Incas, like Pilkokaina palace, pre-Columbian terraces, and the Incas’ stairs. This legendary island is the birthplace of the Inca Empire.

Also, in this package, you will visit the majestic Tiwanaku Ruins. The remains of a once-powerful pre-Columbian civilization, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

2 DAY LAKE TITICACA TOUR & TIAHUANACO RUINS – ITINERARY

DAY 1

Transfer & Tour of Copacabana on Lake Titicaca:
Pick up from the lobby of your hotel in La Paz – booked on your own. Transport to Copacabana (duration: 3 ½  – 4 hours, altitude: 3,840m / 12,595ft).

At your arrival, visit the Basilica, a stark, white, Moorish-looking building decorated with Portuguese-style blue tiles and rounded domes. Inside is the Shrine de la Virgen de Copacabana — a statue carved in the 15th century believed to be responsible for countless miracles. People believe that if she’s removed, Lake Titicaca will rise in rebellion and flood the town.

We recommend you take an optional walk (duration: 1 ½ hours) through the 12 Stations of the Cross, as devout Catholics do during the Easter season. This great uphill walk will help you understand the layout of the town and the position of nearby islands. The views of Lake Titicaca, on the way up, are also worth the journey. It is worth noting that in contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana, you will also find Yatiris (Aymara masters) performing spiritual cleanings called “challas” or coca leaf readings.

Boat Ride & Sun Island Tour:
After your tour of Copacabana, transfer by boat to the Port of Pilkokaina in the southern part of Sun Island on Lake Titicaca–legendary birthplace of the Inca Empire– where you will be welcomed by the Lodge staff. Here, you will enjoy a traditional lunch, in the open air, called Apthapi, before continuing on your tour.

After lunch, enjoy a smooth uphill walk with amazing views of the lake and a visit to the Inca ruins of Pilkokaina Palace along the way. The lodge is situated in the halfway up of the island and requires a smooth uphill walk with amazing views of the lake and a visit to the Inca ruins of Pilkokaina Palace along the way (duration: 45 minutes). From the lodge, behold an amazing sunset (duration: 8 hours approx.). Evening free.

Overnight on Sun Island.

L, D

DAY 2

Escalera del Inca Tour (Sun Island) & Transfer to Tiahuanaco:
After enjoying breakfast at your lodge, walk down to the Port of Yumani and visit the Escalera del Inca, a stairway leading to the Inca Fountain, once believed to be a fountain of youth. This was a place where ceremonies dedicated to water and insemination of earth took place. After a short trek with wonderful panoramic views of Lake Titicaca, take a boat back to Copacabana (duration: 1 hour) to then be transferred to Tiahuanaco (duration: 3 – 4 hours).

LA PAZ TO LAKE TITICACA DAY TOUR – OVERVIEW

In this La Paz to Lake Titicaca day tour, you can observe the contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana and the beliefs of the Aymara culture. At Cerro Calvario, you can find Aymara Yatiris (masters) performing spiritual cleansings called “challas” or coca-leaf readings. From here, you can see a spectacular view of the town, lake and surrounding mountains.

Also, La Paz to Lake Titicaca Day Tour allows you to visit the Sun Island, where you can see many Incas’ structures to worship the God of the Sun, pre-Columbian terraces and the fountain of youth in Inca mythology.

Besides, you can visit the Island of the Moon, also known as Koati Island. At the time of the Inca Empire, the island of the moon had a temple called the Palace of the Virgins of the Sun or Iñakuyu, where the so-called Virgins of the Sun lived. This site was an acllahuasi or house of the women chosen, where they learned several trades, especially weaving.

LA PAZ TO LAKE TITICACA DAY TOUR – ITINERARY

Transfer to Copacabana:

Pick up at 09:00 hrs from the lobby of your hotel (booked on your own). Transport from La Paz to Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca (duration: 3 ½ – 4 hours, altitude: 3,840m / 12,595ft).

Tour of Copacabana:

You will start your tour by visiting the Basilica; a stark, white, Moorish-looking building decorated with Portuguese-style blue tiles and rounded domes. The treasure inside is the Shrine de la Virgen de Copacabana — a statue carved in the 15th century which is said to be responsible for countless miracles. It is also said that if she is removed, Lake Titicaca will rise in rebellion and flood the town. It is worth noting that in contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana, you will also find Aymara Yatiris (masters) performing spiritual cleansings called “challas” or coca-leaf readings.

Lake Titicaca Tour – Sun island and Pilkokaina ruins:

After your tour of Copacabana, you will transfer by boat to the Port of Pilkokaina in the southern part of Sun Island on Lake Titicaca–legendary birthplace of the Inca Empire. Here, you will enjoy a traditional lunch, in the open air, called Apthapi before continuing on your tour. After lunch, enjoy a smooth uphill walk with amazing views of the lake and a visit to the Inca ruins of Pilkokaina Palace along the way.

Then, you will start your walk down to the Port of Yumani. Along the way, you will visit the Escalera del Inca, a stairway leading to the Inca Fountain. It was once believed to be a fountain of youth, and a place where ceremonies dedicated to water and insemination of earth took place.

After the tour, you will take a boat back to Copacabana (duration: 1 hour). Return to your hotel.
