Uyuni Salt Flat is located in the Potosi Department in southwest Bolivia. It can be seen with the naked eye from space and is the largest salt flat in the world. It is about 12 square kilometers and it is positioned at 3,600 meters above sea level.

The salt flat has no comparison, I must point out that there are other salt flats on the planet, but in none you can enjoy the “border between heaven and earth” as the locals say. In fact, in Bolivia, the salt flat is considered the capital of tourism. ¡So imagine how visited it is!

These packages have been designed to discover and marvel at this natural world. If you want a private or a tailor-made tour, write me at info@cyriljoseph.net    

I have 2 packages to visit the Salar de Oyuni, specifically on February and October. Although it seems repetitive, it is not! each season offers different activities and experiences. Obviously there are activities that coincide, but I assure you, when you visit the salt flat you will be amazed.

Through our program you will know well the emblematic areas of the salt flat and we will guide you by hand, so you can capture incredible moments and photographs.

Cementerio de Trenes

The circuits we designed will allow you to enjoy and discover what this destination offers. On one hand, during our tours we will have activities at all hours and on the other hand, all meals and transfer are included. For more details, keep reading!

On our tour by the salt flat we can enjoy the magnificent natural landscapes, the conformations of dunes or figures that are formed by the wind in the salt flat spaces. Occasionally we can see groups of Andean flamingos touring the salt flat.

Union cielo y Tierra A

The staff has wide experience offering service and attention to photographers, group tours and individual or private circuits. Our guides and circuit leaders work full time, they perfectly know the terrain and tour areas. We seek to offer you a unique, welcoming and personal experience.

We have an experience of more than 10 years in the destination. We work together with highly experienced guides who know every corner of the salt flat. We organize groups with no more than 12 people, four (4) people per vehicle to allow them to move safely and load photography equipment without major inconvenience.

All our programs allow you to know each destination in detail. The indicated dates are chosen with great care so your visit is of maximum benefit. 

Our programs start departing from Panama City, or if you prefer, as the majority of our clients do, we meet at the destination. Depending on the time and day of arrival, we can immediately start our adventure, or sometimes we spend the first night in downtown and leave the next day.

Once being in the salt flat we will start with the program considering the time of the visit. Remember that we have two options to visit the salt flat: February and October.

We use Land Cruiser-type vehicles who are optimized to observe and take the tour throughout the Salar de Uyuni, offering comfort and safety to their occupants. If a vehicle is not fill the minimum of 2 people, you can choose another date or pay a supplement, whatever your preference. Usually 4 to 5 people per vehicle are accommodated.
