During the rainy season from January to April, the Uyuni salt flat is filled with water, so it is not possible to cross it in the same way as during the dry season. As a consequence, the itinerary is modified during this period. The main changes usually are:

  • Instead of having a stop on the Incahuasi Island, you will have an alternative stop in a place where the water reflects the sky and you can appreciate the beautiful effect that the sky and the ground merge into one and you seem to float on it.

On day 2, you could sleep in a different location. (Because of the heavy rain there is) When it snows, the roads are often closed due to the large amount of snow, so on the third day an optional route will be used. (Red and green lagoon will not be seen). But you will be informed previously.

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.  As it is hard to forecast the weather at high altitudes and due to global warming and it may also snow abruptly.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO FORECAST WHEATHER DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING, EVEN WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TOOLS THAT MANY PEOPLE USE. THIS IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CLIMATOLOGICAL CHANGES MAY HAPPEN IN THIS PLACE.
