Day 1: Arrive in 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.

After the guided tour, transfer to the airport for your flight to Uyuni (approximately a one hour flight).

Day 2: Explore Uyuni

After breakfast, head out to start your adventures in Uyuni.
  
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). 

Day 3: Return Home

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast, feel free to explore more of Uyuni before getting transferred to the airport back to La Paz for your flight home.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
