Enjoying the sights of the wilderness doesn’t have to mean compromising on comfort. This Chile and Bolivia trip takes you through Atacama and the mysterious salt flats, and to Lake Titicaca.


This 8 or 9 day trip (depending on the direction, as it can be taken in reverse) explores the peerless colours of the Atacama Desert and the equally striking landscape of Bolivia’s Salt Flats, focusing on the wonders of nature.

On the 9-day itinerary, you’ll start in Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Explore the lakeside town of Copacabana and learn about the Mamita del Lago. A private luxury cruise then takes you out on Lake Titicaca, where you can admire spectacular views from the Moon Island, and drink the waters of the Sun Island, which promise health and luck. You’ll also learn about the mystical culture of the native Kallaways. Spend your final day in the region learning more about life at this altitude before going on to La Paz, with time to explore the Indian Market and the Witch Doctor’s Market, as well as the famous Moon Valley.

On to the salt lakes! Fly to Uyuni, where you’ll be met by your 4x4 vehicle and luxurious Airstream camper for two nights in the wilderness. Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, characterized by the vibrant contrasts of white and yellow salt, pink flamingos, and perfectly adapted desert plants. You’ll also notice the eerie silence that creeps over the land, creating what feels like an alien landscape on earth. See caves and archaeological sites before enjoying the spectacular sunset colours. The following day, take a bike ride on the salt lake, visit its islands, and learn about sophisticated local salt extraction techniques. Your final day in the flats is all about nature at its most colourful! Visit Laguna Colorada, known for its red waters and three distinctly coloured species of flamingo. Then go on to the Sol de Manana Geysers and the Green Lagoon.

Cross the border into Chile and settle into the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa. Like the salt flats, the Atacama Desert takes on an otherworldly quality with its silent ‘Andescape.’ Yet it’s also completely unique, with its own flora and fauna including colourful flowers, and the surreal colours of its sands, contrasted against blue and pink skies. This is perhaps South America at its most mesmerizing, so you’ll have a full extra day to explore the landscape.

This itinerary also runs in reverse from Calama, lasting 8 days.


 Small Group Touring


There are two ways to travel. One is to be totally independent – “doing one’s own thing”. The other is to travel with a group. Most travellers know which they prefer.

Travelling with a group has a number of advantages. First, everything is arranged in advance with no worries about planning things like accommodation, sightseeing and possibly where to eat or what to see. Secondly, you usually travel with like minded people with whom you may well continue a friendship long after the tour has ended. Thirdly, there is tour escort or guide who can help with any emergencies and be of general assistance.

The sound of silence makes the heart beats faster and the surreal pentagons of crystalline salt, the pure sky, the cacti and sometimes even the flamingos, certainly makes you feel that there is no other place like this in the whole world. The landscape against the background of the salt pans extending to the horizon makes it an ideal place for photography hunters.

Continue to “Sol de Mañana” Geysers, with fumaroles and volcanic craters of spectacular formation, covering 1 Km2, featuring intense volcanic and fumaroles activity. The crater bottoms display boiling lava; the fumaroles emit spouts of mixed water and superheated steam reaching 80 to 100 mtrs height; this phenomena displays a landscape dating from the beginning of the earth. This geothermal field is located at an altitude of 4.900 mtrs. Continue to Green lagoon, which water surface has the appearance of a giant emerald. From this Lagoon there is an impressive view of Licancabur Volcano, at an altitude of 5,865 mtrs. The special brightness of the green waters in the afternoon is dazzling.
