Glamping on Uyuni Salt Flats

Overview

This is by far the BEST way to see the beauty of the Uyuni Salt Flats. On the bucket list of any keen traveler, these incredible salt flats are the largest in the world and were created by a prehistoric lake drying up and leaving behind this bizarre white landscape.

Uyuni is like nowhere else on earth, it has a serene almost mystical feel about it and this extreme scenery makes it one of the most breath-taking spectacles in the whole of South America.

On this tour you will stay in comfortable and stylish Deluxe Airstream Campers. Especially adjusted for the voyage at the Salt Flats, these campers are designed for the challenges of the area. They include a double bed, or two twin beds, as well as a convertible sofa; electric blankets, private bath with hot shower, table, wardrobe and luggage space, heating, I-pod port, CD player and a fully stocked mini-bar. Each camper is towed by a specially suited 4x4, in which the passengers and personal guide travel during the day.

The dreamy accommodation is complemented with the best service in this area. The local culinary specialties are served by our experienced cook. The cocktail at sundown offers a great variety of alcoholic, as well as none-alcoholic beverages, making the Nature`s spectacle even more memorable.

The clear, star filled skies on the Bolivian High Plateau are a fantasy. If you are interested, ask us about “Rendezvous with the Stars” - an introduction to astronomy and the use of our telescope on the flats. This is truly a unique way to see this spectacular landscape in style!
