Meet a driver for a morning departure, then set out across the Uyuni salt flats in a 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser. The first stop of the day is the Uyuni train graveyard, where the Bolivia’s first trains are rusting into a surreal landmark, and you'll see a salt miners’ workshop in Colchani.
Continue onto the salt flat itself, passing salt mining operations and the “eyes of the salt” on your way to a fascinating salt hotel; tour the rooms, see salt sculptures, then pause for an included lunch in the hotel.
From there, head to Inca Wasy Island to see cactus, rock formations, and petrified coral, stopping to take plenty of classic Uyuni perspective photos. After checking out the towering Thunapa Volcano, begin the return trip to Uyuni—if time and weather conditions allow, you might catch an Uyuni salt flats sunset before the end of the day.
