explora from Uyuni

This travesía starts in Potosí, one of the most important mining cities in colonial America. From there, we will begin our journey through the fascinating Bolivian altiplano towards the Salar de Uyuni. The travesía will come to an end at the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, situated in the driest desert in the world.

Our journey across the altiplano begins in the mythical Bolivian city of Potosí, whose vast silver deposits sustained the Spanish Empire for centuries.

Breaking through the vastness of this rough, deserted territory, is the Salar de Uyuni, the largest and highest-altitude salt flat in the world. Here we will make our home for several days and go on different treks around the area.

The journey will take us through valleys in between mountains, passing by volcanos, geothermal plains, lagoons and wetlands, where we will find a surprising range of wildlfe, with many species endemic to the area. We will go deep into the altiplano, following roads which pass through deserted towns, where we will be able to observe ancient ways of life and unique Uyuni travel.

From the Chilean altiplano, we will descend to the San Pedro oasis, where we will use our Hotel de Larache as a base to explore deep into Atacama's natural and cultural richness.
