Über explora Uyuni

Um unsre Dienstleistungen und das Programm an unseren Fernzielen ständig zu verbessern, damit Sie dort ganz besondere Erfahrungen machen können, haben wir beschlossen, die Travesía Uyuni vorübergehend nicht anzubieten. Wir wollen nämlich unsere Camps neu gestalten und alternative Routen im chilenisch-bolivianischen Hochland entdecken.

Die Travesía Salta und die Travesía El Chaltén werden aber weiterhin angeboten. Unsere Reisenden können dabei Unvergessliches erleben, Grenzen auf unbeschrittenen Wegen überqueren und in einzigartige Landschaften eintauchen.

Travesías Uyuni already scheduled will be developed according to the original program.

Zur Erkundung des bolivianischen Hochlands und des Uyuni-Salzsee haben wir unsere einzigartige Travesía entworfen.

explora Travesías sind Reisen, bei denen wir mit einem Kleinbus zwischen verschiedenen Ländern unterwegs sind und in entlegenden Camps unterkommen. Auf dem Weg entdecken wir Wanderrouten an ganz fernen Orten dieser Welt.

Bei der Travesía Uyuni werden wir eine der am wenigsten erforschten Landschaften der Welt entdecken: Das bolivianische Hochland und die unberührte Stille des Uyuni-Salzsees.

Je nach gewählter Route kann man diese Tour von Chile oder von Bolivien aus starten und gelangt dabei auf ähnliche, aber nicht immer genau die gleichen Wege.

Warum Uyuni?

Travesía explora Uyuni is the ultimate travel experience, discovering the unearthly world of the Bolivian Altiplano through some of the world’s most isolated hiking routes and our remote explora camps.

In a world in which it is harder and harder to leave crowds behind, we have created a taylor-made journey across the Altiplano, following our own route, which no other company covers.

Exclusive route

Throughout the journey, we will stay at our remote Altiplano camps, which vary in their construction, but always ensure absolute isolation from everything but nature in its raw, naked form. From shipping containers to stone cabins, all camps have been renovated to explora standards.

Extreme isolation

The route for this Travesía, takes travelers from sea level, to approximately 5.100 meters above sea level, during which you can see how nature manages to open its way through the sometimes inhospitable Altiplano.

Altitude climb

Depending on the route, we will cross the Chilean-Bolivian border at two points: Hito Cajón (4.400 meters above sea level) and Colchane (4.700 meters above sea level).

Border crossings

All food and wine is of local origin, produced either in Bolivia or in Chile, and includes high altitude cereals such as Quinoa.

Local food and wine

Our route is the safest way of exploring the Uyuni Salt flat, as well as the Bolivian Altiplano.

Safety

All accompanying staff is trained to address unexpected weather, safety and migratory issues.

Trained staff

The variation in altitude, causes extreme variations in the wildlife which we will see throughout the journey.

Extreme contrasts

The Travesía allows travelers to truly interact with locals who harvest the land producing Quinoa, beans, and llama wool, providing a further understanding into their largely untouched traditions and way of life.

Human contact

All explora guides have been trained in the explora Schoolof Guides, and are knowledgeable in geography, wildlife, geology, history and first aids. There are not better travel companions for a journey of this nature.
