Day 1

Death Road – Bus La Paz – Uyuni 

Point 1: This is a 22 km downhill on asphalt (tarmac) road. At the police checkpoint (after 45 min.) all visitors pay Bs. 50 for the entrance to the national park. This first section is for you to develop confidence and get used to the bike. Do not worry, the safety van is always behind the group and we have stops for water, photos, and bike checks.

Point 2: “Death Road” about 10 Km. always in a compact group (safety first!!!) and also snack time.

At approximately 04:00 p.m. it´s time to go back to La Paz driving through the new road. At the final of the “Death Road Tour” the guide will drop off you at the bus office to your Bus La Paz to Uyuni. **Bring your bags with you because you won’t return to your hotel** Bus departs at 9:00 p.m.

 

Day 2

Uyuni – Train Graveyard – Colchani – Incahuasi Island  – Agencha 

Start your tour off at 10:30 a.m. with a drive out to the Uyuni Salt Flats. The first stop is the haunting “Train Graveyard’, which is found on the outskirts of Uyuni. Get to see the first locomotives in Bolivia, and learn about their history, which connected 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.

Then visit the small settlement of Colchani (salt miners’ workshops next to the salt flats), there, also find handicrafts made of salt, and textile art manufactured of llama and alpaca wool. These make excellent souvenirs to bring back home. Take photos as you cruise along the vast white expanse of salt, wade through “Ojos de Agua Salada” (salt water eyes), also visit: a hotel made completely out of salt which is currently used as a museum – restaurant, Flags of the world (Where you can bring yours and put there for free) and a Monument of Dakar racing.

After a morning of exploration, Lunch will be served near “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), following that, have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cacti and rock formations made of petrified coral.

Next, take time to organize your group for fun perspective- and proportion-distorted photos, set on the blinding white surface of the salt flats, playing around with the scene, you can be sure to take some funny, and memorable shots!

Finally, head to a spacious area for the unique experience of seeing a beautiful sunset over the salt flats, spreading its dazzling colors all over the Uyuni Salt Flats, and enjoying it with a glass of wine.

Arrive to Agencha town to have dinner and a night stay in the hostel.

Accommodation: Agencha Hostel – 2-beds, 3-beds, 4-beds, 5-beds, and 6-bed rooms + communal bathrooms.
