Itinerary

Buenos Aires to La Paz: Salt Flats & Sand Dunes (from 2017)

Day 1 - Buenos Aires

Arrive at any time. Soak in the energy of the bustling and trendy "Paris of the Americas" before mingling with your fellow travellers, and get excited for the adventures to come with a few drinks at the hostel.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires/Salta

Skip a long bus ride and board a plane for a quick flight to Salta. Unwind at the hotel or liven it up with a visit to a Pena Folklore show to dance the night away and sip delicious Argentine red wine. Remember, no visit to Salta is complete without trying the local specialty ?? empanadas saltenas.

Day 3 - Salta

Tantalize your tastebuds with the local cuisine today as you explore freely. Choose to saddle up and admire the scenery on horseback. Or, if you'd prefer, take a visit to the town of Cafayate to roam vineyards and sample some of the white wine produced at insanely high altitudes.

Day 4 - Salta/San Pedro de Atacama

Say "Adios!" to Argentina, because you're off to Chile today to a little town on the edge of the Atacama desert, the driest place on earth.

Day 5 - San Pedro de Atacama

You will be amazed at everything you can do today. Explore San Pedro de Atacama on a mountain bike, cruise down the dunes on a sandboard, or chill out in the hot springs with your friends and fellow travel squad. Or visit the Valley of the Moon, an area on Earth that resembles the moon's surface. (How cool is that?)

Day 6 - San Pedro de Atacama/ Salt Flats and Desert Crossing

Ascend by bus into the mountains and cross into Bolivia for a three-day 4x4 excursion to the Salar de Uyuni and surrounding desert altiplano with spectacular scenery. Today you will be crossing the varied landscape of the desert, stopping off at colourful lagoons along the way.

Day 7 - Salt Flats and Desert Crossing

Continue crossing the desert today, admiring the scenery while passing red and blue lagoons and intriguing rock formations along the route. Keep an eye out and you might spot wild llamas, alpacas, and even flamingos deep within the desert. Arrive at your home for the night ?? a G Adventures-supported community lodge in the heart of a desert oasis.

Day 8 - Salt Flats and Desert Crossing /Uyuni

Get a head start on your day by rising early to cover more ground on your journey through the unique landscape of the Salar de Uyuni. Soak in the views of unimaginable scenery including volcanoes and salt lakes.

Day 9 - Uyuni/Potosi

Travel north to visit one of the highest cities in the world. On arrival spot the looming mountain of Cerro Rico, a working silver mine.

Day 10 - Potosi

Wake up, get out, and explore Potosi. Meander the streets, stop at the market and meet some locals!

Day 11 - Potosi/Sucre

Venture north to the beautiful colonial city of Sucre.

Day 12 - Sucre

Discover the beauty of Sucre, known as Bolivia's "White City" at your own pace with a free day to explore. Set in a valley surrounded by mountains, you can choose to go hiking or mountain biking to admire this city from a different point of view.

Day 13 - Sucre/La Paz

One day in Sucre isn't enough, so take another free day to explore before winding down on an overnight bus to La Paz.

Day 14 - La Paz

Hope you got some rest on the bus because the vibrant city of La Paz awaits. After getting settled, head out to experience this high altitude city. Take a tour of the Valley of the Moon, check out the Witches' Market, or visit the nearby Tiahuanaco Ruins.

Depart at any time.
