The Salar itself is pretty amazing. Vast expanse of just white (dry season) as far as the eye can see. We did a 3D/2N tour, however felt like the highlight of the trip was the Salar, and although you see some pretty cool geological features on the 2nd day (the 3rd day is spent driving back to Uyuni), it wasn't...

A vast expanse of salt with incredible blue skies, orange/violet sunsets ... A very large area; do not believe it can be seen in 2 days as there are so many parts of the salar and the edges of the salar to see. I rode with my driver/guide over 1200 miles in 4 full days, and I could probably have... More

The salt flats definitely live up to the hype! The sunrise and sunset were spectacular and made for perfect photo opportunities. Obviously, be prepared to take the obligatory optical illusion photos. Just make sure to take a guided tour- it's very easy to get lost in this massive expanse of land.

After being back from our 3 days tour (Salar de Uyuni - Lagunas Colorado / Verde) I have to underline a lot of previous comments. The positive aspects: the attractions are famous, unbelievable and unexpected famous, much better than expected. The climate is rough (as expected), the standards of the hostals/ hospedajes/ salt hotels are very basic (as expected) -... More

Uyuni Salt flats get a rather mixed bag of reviews when it comes to travel companies to choose from. There are SOOOOO Many in Uyuni, The Salt Flats are amazing at anytime of the year..dry or wet, and the experience is fantastic WHEN the right Company to trust over 2/3/4 days and nights is chosen wisely. Simply put, you are... More

Uyuni is one of the most enigmatic and unique land, a surrealist landscape where the sky merges with the ground in an infinite landscape, a neat place, a clean place. This is a place that should be visited. No offers the best connections or accommodations but the place worth visiting.

It was one of the best views I've seen around the world. I started a return trip from San Pedro de atacama with white world travel..everything was good except the guide. Food was decent, sleeping places were not too cold. Shower was a bit challenging due to water shortage (only hot water came out), but given the location, it wasn't... More

We booked our 3d/2n tour through Madidi Travel in La Paz. They originally do the Amazon tours, but now work together with Perla de Bolivia in Uyuni to also be able to offer the Uyuni tours. Madidi Travel in La Paz was very professional, they replied to all my emails very quickly and when I went to the office it... More
