Day 1 Arrive La Paz

Arrive in La Paz and transfer from the airport into the city where you will set off on your guided tour.

La Paz is set within an awe inspiring frame of snowcapped mountains and gives this city the honor as the highest capital in the world. La Paz is a city of contrasts with ancient and modern structures protected by the "Guardian of La Paz", Mount Illimani. Visit the Plaza Murillo, where the cathedral and the Government Palace are located. Then, continue to the famous colonial street “Calle Jaén” where interesting museums are clustered together, followed by the visit to the typical “Mercado de las Brujas” or the Witches’ Market, located along narrow streets near the San Francisco Church. This church was founded in 1549 and is a great area to find traditional handicrafts and artwork. The tour continues to Obrajes, Calacoto and La Florida residential areas in the south and the well known Moon Valley, where erosion has given place to the most exotic and curious surface forms.  There is the option to take the cable car that provides good vistas of La Paz.

Day 2 La Paz to Uyuni

Transfer to the airport for your flight to Uyuni (approximately a one hour flight).
Uyuni Salt Lake is an unmistakable landscape, the largest salt flat in the world and can even be seen from space. Spend the day exploring the surreal empty white landscape and its surrounding area. Stop at the Train Cemetery before continuing to the small town of Colchani where you will visit the salt factories and witness the rustic way table salt is produced. You will also visit Inca Huasi Island, which has many caves and gigantic cacti (up to 10 m/32 ft high) before returning to Uyuni and flying back to La Paz.
