Uyuni Salt Flat Tour

05 Oct

The Uyuni Salt Flat tour takes you across the largest salt pan in the world – as big as many countries in Europe and States in America. It is remote and cold and hard going with few rest stops available but the scenery is spectacular and pristine. A once in a lifetime tour to one of the remotest areas of South America.

We offer this privately guided tour departing from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, for 1-4 persons in a jeep with accommodation in double or triple rooms rather than the standard dormitory bunks for 12-20. Many people add the Uyuni salt flat tour on to a tour in Salta with us.
