Before booking this trip you must know:
While the landscapes you will encounter during this adventurous trip are absolutely stunning, it is imperative to understand that the 3-day tour from San Pedro de Atacama to the Uyuni Salt Flats is a very authentic experience that may pose obstacles or challenges for some travelers. It certainly is not suited for everyone as the services and accommodation options available in this remote region are very limited and will not be of the same elevated quality that visitors may expect.
For example, food is included, but it is extremely basic. Nights will be spent in rudimentary shelters with shared rooms and communal bathrooms, and water may or may not be running during your visit. Temperatures during the evenings can also plummet to 20º Celsius below 0 (-4º Fahrenheit), and altitudes climb to more than 5,000 meters above sea level (16,000 feet). It is also important to note that the drivers in this area typically do not speak English and are strictly drivers, not specialized tour guides.
The region attracts travelers from around the world for its remarkable landscapes that are unlike anywhere on earth, but anybody considering visiting this awe-inspiring destination must understand that comfort and convenience are not a priority. If you can “rough it” for a few days, we guarantee that you will fall in love with this special part of South America and make memories that will last a lifetime.
