Itinerary Day By Day

DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO LA PAZ + CITY TOUR (VALLEY OF THE MOON + GREEN AND YELLOW LINE CABLE CARS) + OVERNIGHT IN LA PAZ

In the morning arrival to La Paz and reception from the airport to transfer to your selected hotel and accommodation. You will have the morning free on your own account in order to rest and become accustomed to the climate and the altitude.

13:00 PM – Personal pickup from your hotel in order to start the tour in La Paz:

During the City Tour, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the natural, cultural, historical, and archeological richness of the beautiful city of La Paz, passing through several sites rich in historical value. You’ll be visiting: Plaza Murillo, the Holy Cathedral, the Government Palace, the San Francisco ChurchMirador Quilli Quilli – where you can grasp a beautiful view of the entire city, and the Witches Market, in which the local people buy various necessities for the many ritualistic ceremonies in existence in Bolivia – including the ceremonies of Ch’alla and the offerings to Pachamama – “Mother Earth.”

After visiting the urban center of La Paz, you will pass through the Valley of the Moon, visiting also the residential neighborhoods of the Southern zone of the city. The Valley of the Moon gives every visitor a marvelous sensation of having discovered a world that has never been known and or really understood. Due to the many years of sedimentary erosion which have formed a set of amazing stony formations, it can be said that a passage through the Valley of the Moon is about as real a journey to the moon as one can get.

Continuing the tour, you will then take a ride in the Green, Light blue, White and Orange Cable Cars where you will see a different perspective of the city as you fly through its skies. Throughout this sky adventure, you will capture a breathtaking view of the mountain Illimani, the surrounding mountains, and you will also experience the sweet mixture of modernization and tradition – all while the City of Wonders captures your heart, leaving behind an unforgettable experience.

HOTEL – 4**** IN LA PAZ (hotel options: Hotel Rey Palace Or Hotel Ritz): Provides 01 Twin Rooms with private bathroom + breakfast.

06:30 am – Personal pickup from your hotel (3,600 meters above sea level) via touristic transport to travel to what is called the Cumbre (4,700 meters above sea level) where we will start our descension on bike via the riskiest and most exciting highway in Bolivia: Death Road.

From the start of the tour, our experienced guides provide orientation and guidance throughout the entire biking experience. During the first section of the tour, everyone will descend via a meandering asphalted passage with a weather climate that is cold and frigid until arriving to the point of control which is found in Unduavi. After arrival to Unduavi, everyone will enter via a dirt passage which is revered as the dangerous Death Road; there will be certain rest areas where you can appreciate the natural beauty of this region and also take pictures. During the trajectory, we will partake in an adrenaline-filled zip-line activity with a velocity that reaches up to 85 kilometers per hour at 1,555 meters above sea level divided by three segments; the activity has been designed in accordance with the international standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) – and, the cables are constructed of ½ foot iron with a support capacity of up to 12,600 kilograms. The activity stretches over hundreds of meters above the most profound areas of the valley, and it passes through and above coca-leaf plantations, rivers, and the most dangerous trail in the world.

Rapid descension on bike takes about 4-to-5 hours until reaching the village of Yolosa (1,200 meters above sea level) – with a milder-to-hot climate – where you will be able to rest and enjoy lunch, and then take a refreshing bath in a bathing pool (optional – please take with you a towel and swimming trunks or a bathing suit).

After resting and having lunch, everyone will return to La Paz via road transportation and via the new asphalted highway (not Death Road); the trip back to La Paz is about 3 hours.

Train Graveyard – Where we will observe very antique trains and locomotives that date back to the end of the 19th Century; the majority of the trains made their routes with wagons that carried minerals – but, they only lasted for so much time. These trains were part of an industrial past, but now they that have been naturally transitioned into a wonderful, but mysterious tourist attraction.

The Village of Colchani – Located on the outskirts of the Uyuni Salt Flats, the village of Colchani is the principal means of entrance to the Salt Flats where we will observe the activity of salt extraction in an artisanal form; the villagers will show us the extraction process which includes the drying, shaping, and bagging of salt for sale, and this process is now dedicated to the making of artisanal pieces which are made of different salt molds and textiles.

Salt Mounds – The salt mounds which you will be able to observe are little pyramids of salt; the villagers of Colchani make these mounds to dry the salt and then later transport them to the village to be processed. In addition to seeing these mounds, we will also pass what is called the “Ojos de Sal” which are different colorful eruptions of salt within the Salt Flats that are often filled with water, giving them their peculiar colors.

Salt Hotel – Located in the heart of the salt flats, this famous hotel is entirely made of blocks of salt; literally – from the inside and out – the walls, the floor, the beds, the tables, the chairs – everything is adorned in salt. The hotel hasn’t functioned as a hotel for a multitude of years, but it is definitely a wonderful museum to visit.

After visiting the salt hotel, we will have lunch and then continue to enjoy the dazzling white salt desert.

END OF THE AFTERNOON – We will have the opportunity to enjoy a spectacular natural lights show, performed by the setting of the sun when its colorful rays of light dance on the infinite sea of salt; after the magnificent show of lights, we will continue our trip to the villages of Colchani to find accommodation in a salt hotel.

DAY 5: GEYSERS + GREEN LAGOON + RETURN UYUNI VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING –

After breakfast, we will set out to first visit the Red Lagoon which is located in Fauna Eduardo Avaroa National Park. The Red Lagoon’s characteristics are a sight to see; the red color of its waters are due to its sediments and also the pigments of different types of algae and plankton – but, it doesn’t always maintain the same color depending on a variety of ever-changing characteristics (lighting, climate, etc.).After visiting the lagoon, we will set out to appreciate the Geysers – geothermal fountains within the volcanic zone of Sol de Mañana (“Morning Sun” in English); this place is the highest point in the route at about 5,000 meters above sea level and the cold is intense. From the Geysers, then, we will continue to a place called Polques de Chalviri where you will be able to take a relaxing bath in the thermal baths found within the place; then, we will head past the desert of Salvador Dali until we reach the White and Green Lagoons (4,350 meters above sea level) which are located at the foot of the Licancabur Volcano. The White and Green Lagoons’ characteristics are a sight to see as well; the green color of their waters are due to the high content of magnesium that is characteristic of the geographical formations of the area, but the intensity of the color depends upon the wind strength. The Licancabur Volcano is the natural milestone that divides Bolivia and Chile at the border. After stopping at the White and Green Lagoons, we will return to Uyuni, having lunch along the way, also passing through the Valley of the Rocks – as well as the villages of Villa Alota, Kulpinaka, and San Cristóbal; passing through these places, we will be able to see a great quantity of llamas and vicunas.
