IMPORTANT INFO

Important: Due to the rainy season (from January to March), it is not possible to access Incahuasi Island. However, there is the possibility of visiting the island, if on the day of your tour it does not rain.

Important: During the winter season (from June to August), it is not possible to access Eduardo Avaroa national park (red lagoon, Dali dessert, green lagoon). However, there is the possibility of visiting black lagoon and rock valley if on the third day of your tour it does not snow. We also may sleep in a different location due to road access.

This tour is perfectly tailored for all arrivals in Uyuni, being by bus or by plane. The operator´s office is only 5 minutes away by taxi from the bus terminal and the airport

Note: Tour given in English.

The mountain biking to Coroico starts at 7:30 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel. We then go by transport to La Cumbre (1hr. From La Paz), which is the starting point at 4.700 m.a.s.l.

First, we start with a 22 km downhill on asphalt (tarmac) road. At the police checkpoint (after 45 min.) all tourists pay 25 Bs for the entrance to the national park. This first section is for you to develop confidence and get used to the bike. Don’t worry, the safety van is always behind the group and we have water stops, photos and bike checks.

We then hit “Death road” always in a compact group (safety first!!!). We will take some snack breaks for chocolate, fruit and more. Finally, the end of the tour is in Yolosa (a town 20min. from Coroico) arriving to Yolosa at 12:00 aprox. At this point we arrive so dirty that we need a shower, so the next stop is in a hotel with showers, a swimming pool and a buffet lunch as well. We can enjoy Coroico´s weather for a couple hours. Coroico is a warm, tropical town at a much lower altitude than La Paz.

At approximately 2:00 p.m. it´s time to go back to La Paz using the new road. We will arrive in La Paz Approximately at 7:30 where you will be dropped off at Todo Turismo us station. The bus towards Uyini will depart at 9:00pm

On every ride we have English speaking guides, with years of experience who are first-aid and rope rescue trained and we ride with you so we can watch your riding and offer advice, tips where appropriate, plus be on-hand to immediately attend to medical or mechanical problems.

You will arrive on Uyuni at 7:30 am where the operator will pick you up and take you to their office for you to leave your bags in their office while you go out to have breakfast. Your tour will start at 10:30 am with a drive out to the salt flats. The first stop we make is the haunting “Train Graveyard’, which is found on the outskirts of Uyuni. Get to see the first locomotives of Bolivia, and learn about their history, connecting several major cities. Now, corroded over time from the strong salt winds that run through this desert area, this makes for a great photo setting.

The second stop on our trip will be the small settlement of Colchani (salt miners’ workshops next to the salt flats), where you can see handicrafts made of salt, and textile art made of llama and alpaca. These make excellent souvenirs to bring back home. Take photos as you cruise along the vast white expanse of salt, wade through los Ojos de Agua Salada (‘salt water eyes’), and visit a hotel made completely out of salt (currently a museum).

After a morning of exploration, we will wind down for lunch. This will be served on “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), where you’ll also have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cacti, and rock formations made of petrified coral. Take time to organize your group for fun perspective- and proportion-distorted photos, set on the blinding white surface of the salt flats. By playing around with the perspective, you can be sure to take some funny, memorable shots! To end the day, we will head to an open, spacious area for the unique experience of seeing a beautiful sunset, spreading its dazzling colours all over the salt flats.

You will arrive back to Uyuni by 6:30 pm and the oprator will take you to the bus station where you will embark on the 8:00 pm bus towards La Paz arriving at approximately 6:30 am.

Important: Due to the rainy season (from January to April), it is not possible to access Incahuasi Island. However, there is the possibility of visiting the island, if on the day of your tour it does not rain.
