5 DAY UYUNI TOUR PACKAGE ITINERARY

DAY 1

Morning transfer from the Airport:
International flight Lima or Cusco – La Paz (booked on your own). Private transport WITH DRIVER ONLY from the airport to your hotel in La Paz.

City Tour La Paz and Moon Valley Half Day:
Pick up from the lobby of your hotel to begin your Uyuni Tour Packge by visiting the highlights of the city of La Paz. These include the Witch Doctor’s Market (where you can find herbs, folk remedies and fascinating ingredients used in Aymara rituals), and the typical handicrafts market of Sagarnaga Street.

The tour continues to the San Francisco Colonial Church (museum not included) and Plaza Murillo where the Cathedral, the Government Palace, and the National Congress buildings are located. After this, visit the charming, cobble-stoned street of Jaen, one of the last colonial streets of downtown La Paz, and home to a range of museums, shops, bars and restaurants. Transfer to Plaza España to take the Yellow and Green Lines of the city’s sky lift towards the southern area of the city. Here you will enjoy panoramic views of the residential areas of Obrajes, Calacoto and La Florida.

Finally, visit Moon Valley, with an amazing display of rock erosion patterns like something from out of this world. Enjoy the small gallery of celebrated local potter, Mario Sarabia, located in the area (duration: 4 hours). Return to your hotel.

Evening free.

Overnight in Rosario Hotel La Paz.

DAY 2

Transfer to Copacabana and Tour:
Pick up from the lobby of your hotel. Transport to Copacabana (duration: 4 – 4 ½ hours, altitude: 3,840m / 12,595ft). Lunch at the outdoor terrace of the Rosario Hotel, overlooking Lake Titicaca.

Start your tour by visiting 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. Legend says that if she’s removed, Lake Titicaca will rise in rebellion and flood the town.

Next, you may walk the 12 Stations of the Cross (optional), which devout Catholics visit throughout the Easter season of Lent. It is a great walk (duration: 1 ½ hours) as it will help you understand the layout of the town and the position of nearby islands. The views of Lake Titicaca on the way up, and at the summit, are worth the uphill walking. It is worth noting that in contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana, you’ll also find Yatiris (masters) performing spiritual cleansings called “challas” or coca leaf readings, all part of the Aymara culture.

Transfer to Sun Island:
After your tour of Copacabana, you will be transferred 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 La Estancia Eco-Lodge staff. The lodge is situated at the top 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: 1- 1 ½ hours). From the lodge, behold an amazing sunset.Evening free.

Overnight at La Estancia Eco-Lodge.

DAY 3

Escalera del Inca and Transfer to Tiwanaku:
After enjoying breakfast at the Eco-lodge, walk down to the Port of Yumani. Visit the Escalera del Inca, a stairway leading to the Inca Fountain, once believed to be a fountain of youth. Ceremonies dedicated to water and insemination of earth took place here. 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 Tiwanaku (duration: 3 – 4 hours).

Half Day Tiwanaku Ruins and Transfer to La Paz:
After lunch, visit the Spiritual and Political Centre of the Tiwanaku Culture, which includes beautiful monumental stone buildings that survive in the protected archaeological zones. See the Kalasasaya Temple (Sun), the legendary Sun Gate, the Semi-subterranean temple (Earth), the Akapana Pyramid, and the Puma Punku ceremonial center. Visit the local museums and enjoy an impressive collection of objects and tools of ancient civilizations, in addition to monumental monoliths (duration: 1 ½ – 2 hours). Transfer to your hotel in La Paz (duration: 1 ½ hours).

Evening free.

Stop at the town of Colchani (20 min. from Uyuni) where you’ll learn the artisanal salt extraction process from locals. Along the way, see piles of extracted salt and the “ojos del salar” or mineralized water springs bursting out of the salt flat

Drive to Incahuasi Island, located on the Uyuni Salt Flat, to see its giant cacti (up to 10m. or 32ft. high). Afterwards, enjoy a unique picnic experience on the Salar. Take advantage of the extraordinary flatness of the desert, and play with proportion and perspective in your photographs.
