“My girlfriend and I booked this trip. We had a great time. You see so many of the different islands , the beaches, and get to explore Thailand. If I were to do it again, I would see less islands and spend more time at each. You only get a couple of days at each island, which means a third of your trip you spend travelling. My recommendations would be phucket, phi phi and koi Tao. Also , before you leave make sure to print off all of your tickets, as most excursions and ferry companies don’t accept the mobile version. This was annoying asking each hotel to print this off for us.”

Travel Insurance

Uyuni Salt Flats & Desert Adventure 3D/2N (Atacama to Uyuni) tour requires that you have adequate and valid travel insurance covering medical and personal accidents, including repatriation costs and emergency evacuation. We recommend using World Nomads' travel insurance.

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please note that in January and February, because of Altiplanic winter, we keep the right to change route of the circuit If it's necessary. 

Altitude: 

This trip takes place at a very high altitude. The salt flats are around 5,000 meters above sea level, and most guests will be able to feel the effects. We recommend acclimating yourself to above 3,000 meters before the trip and bringing along medication for headaches and tablets for altitude sickness in case you feel unwell. And remember, the real key is to drink lots of water!

Accommodation / facilities on tour: 

The reality of visiting a remote area and immersing yourself in nature is that you will be far from modern facilities and the services will sometimes be slow and quite basic. Due to the harsh terrain, vehicle breakdowns are not uncommon, but the drivers are very used to fixing them and wait times are rarely excessive. The accommodations will be very basic, with cots and shared rooms, and the electricity and running water in the National Park are not as dependable as they are back at home. Toilet facilities may have a small local cost. Make sure to bring snacks, some water, toilet paper, and plenty of warm clothes. That said, with some patience, preparation, and an appetite for adventure, this trip will certainly be a positive and unforgettable experience.

Suggested packing list:  

Sun hat, sunglasses (to protect your eyes from the bright glare off the salt panes), sunblock, coat, gloves, wool hat, trekking shoes, warm socks, swimsuit and towel for hot springs at Sol de Manana Geysers, extra bottles of water (we recommend bringing a 5 Liter bottled water so you can have enough water for the whole trip), snacks, personal medication. Flashlight/torch, camera, extra batteries and memory card, charger (electricity available in most hotels), hand sanitizer, personal first aid kit, water bottle. You will be sleeping up to 4,300 meters above sea level and depending on the season, temperatures can drop well below zero (reaching less than -25 degrees Celsius in the winter months of June and July) and the wind chill can be harsh, so bring plenty of warm clothes like a scarf and wool hat for the chilly evenings.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Pick up is around 07:00 hrs. Please be patient, in case of any delay call our emergency contact. 

REMEMBER:

It can get very cold especially during the winter months of June and July so bring extra warm clothes along like a scarf and wool hat to keep warm. We also recommend bringing an extra 5 litres of water so you can have enough water for the whole trip.

During Winter Season: 

If your tour is confirmed during the winter season. Please be aware that the itinerary as well as the route are prone to changes without notice. 
In case of severe weather conditions in Bolivia, the Uyuni Salt Flats tour may not operate. We will try our best to respect the itinerary as closely as possible as long as safety can be assured.
