Hands down one of the wildest places I have ever been. Travelled there as a member of Expedition 65 on motorcycles and camped at an "Island" 35 miles out on the salt flats. Truly unique experience that should not be missed if you plan on travels to Bolivia.

The place is stunning!!! It's an endless white anc blue landscape that is even more beautiful at the end of rainy season (March) because there's a thin layer of water that transform the pure white floor into the most incredible mirror, reflecting the blue sky!!! Highly recommend! Don't be afraid of the desert, go for it!!

This place is bananas. Unbelievably beautiful and breathtaking. When i went it was in rainy season so there was an amazing reflection. All tou could see was two skies, one on top of the other. Spectacular. Tip: if its wet season, bring flipflops. My shoes are caked in salt now!

A definite on anyone's bucket list The long and tedious trip was worth it. Book a tour to get the most out of the adventure. We used Bolivia travel Site. From the geometric shape of the flats to the expansive nothingness, the beauty is breathtaking. Include a trip to cactus island as well. One full day is sufficient.

We did the 3 day tour over New Year's and it was absolutely incredible. Amazing landscape, something that I have never seen before - a truly great experience. We did the tour with World White Travel from San Pedro de Atacama which I can recommend despite some problems with the Bolivian branch. Our driver Rernar was really nice, knowledgeable, professional... More

I should have waited to book this trip once I got to Uyuni. It would have been cheaper. I booked it in London, the travel agency I used ensure there was food and bedding included. Must have: Super warm clothes - bitter cold at night. -10'c while I was there. Toilet Paper / Water / Battery pack for charging /... More
