On the train ride, you have wonderful views of the Bolivian Altiplano with its wide plains. White-banked lagoons visited by flamingos already suggest the proximity to the salt lake and the flora also indicates an increasing salt content of the soil. When you arrive in Uyuni, you will be expected at the train station and taken to your hotel. Overnight in Uyuni. F / - / -
Uyuni / Salt Lake / Uyuni / Potosí
After breakfast you will visit the village of Colchami on the shore of the salt lake, where you will get an insight into the craft of salt extraction. Then the fascinating journey over the "white sea" begins, and although the mountains are clearly visible on the horizon, the distances are enormous and are quickly underestimated.
Hike across the salt desert and admire the sparkling salt crystals in the water holes. Your next destination is Isla Incahuasi, which is often mistaken for its fish-shaped neighboring island, Isla Pescado. The up to 8 m high cacti, which are one of the few plants that can survive on the lava island under such extreme conditions, are under nature protection and represent a wonderful photo opportunity in front of the huge salt desert. In the afternoon you continue your trip to Potosí and visit on the way the cities of Chaquilla and Tika Tika as well as a salt factory. Overnight in Potosí. F / LB / -
Potosí / Sucre
On a city tour through the city on the silver mountain Potosí you will visit the famous Casa de la Moneda with its original wooden machines for minting coins for the Spanish crown in the colonial times and you will get an insight into the life of the miners underground. According to tradition, the Cerro Rico silver mountain, which rises above the city, provided so much silver that it could have been used to build a bridge from Potosí to Madrid. In the afternoon you continue to Sucre, the city of eternal spring. Overnight in Sucre. F / - / -
