Explore the largest salt flat on Earth.

Step into a world of breathtaking beauty and surreal landscapes as you visit the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia.

Indulge in a surreal and awe-inspiring experience by visiting the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia, a destination that will transport you to a world of shimmering white landscapes, enchanting sunsets, and boundless natural beauty.

Stretching over 10,000 square kilometres, the Uyuni Salt Flats, known as Salar de Uyuni, is the largest salt flat on Earth and a sight to behold. Step into this ethereal landscape, where the expansive white salt crust extends as far as the eye can see, creating an otherworldly panorama that defies imagination. The beauty of this vast, flat expanse is truly surreal, perfectly mirroring the sky above during the rainy season, and capturing stunning reflections that seem to blend the earth and the heavens.

Venture further into this salt-flat wonderland and discover the captivating Isla Incahuasi, a cactus-covered island rising from the sea of salt. Take a stroll among giant cacti, some reaching over 10 metres in height, and marvel at the extraordinary views of the salt flats from its summit. Witness the interplay of light and shadow as the sun casts its magical glow over the glistening salt crust, creating a mesmerising spectacle.

As the day draws to a close, prepare for the enchanting sunsets of Uyuni. With the vast, uninterrupted horizon, the setting sun paints the sky in a symphony of colours, transforming the landscape into a masterpiece.

To enhance your Salar de Uyuni experience, consider venturing beyond the salt flats themselves. Explore the nearby Train Cemetery, a haunting and intriguing sight where abandoned locomotives lay silently amidst the arid desert backdrop, providing a glimpse into Bolivia's industrial past. Visit the stunning-coloured lagoons of Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve, adorned with vibrant hues due to the presence of algae and minerals, creating a surreal and picturesque setting.
