Tour of the Salt Flats of Bolivia, Day One, Part One

This task is so long overdue, but after a chat with Jill yesterday I’ve decided it get over myself and just do it. Put up pictures from our 4 day tour of the Salt Flats of Bolivia. I took hundreds of pictures as we drove for hours and saw dozens of different landscapes.

We took the tour with Darren and Dermot when they got to Bolivia and it was the best! We all agreed that it was a highlight of our trip. It cost about $219 US each, a splurge in Bolivia, but genuinely a bargain to include transport, accommodation, all meals and an English speaking guide. The Salt Flats are seen on the last day, but every day was magnificent for its own reasons.

The first day I’ve broken into 2 posts, and whittled down 200 pictures to 40. They still don’t do it justice!

Note on our tour: We took our tour with Hostal Los Salares and Moses and Carla were our driver and cook/guide respectively. The hostel is based in Tupiza, so we took the 4 day trip from Tupiza, ending in Uyuni. Our group highly recommends this tour for the landscape, really good Bolivian food and the lovely tour staff. You can book the hostel on hostelworld.com and book the tour when you arrive.
