Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip arrives to places of high altitude, it is possible to suffer from altitude sickness because of this, regardless of your age or physical health. Please see the ‘trip planning’ section of our website for more important information on this. Some pre-existing medical conditions are known to severely worsen at high altitude and be difficult to adequately treat on the ground, leading to more serious consequences. It is imperative that you discuss your pre-existing medical conditions with your doctor. We understand certain medications are reported to aid acclimatising to high altitude. Please discuss these options with your doctor.
  • You’ll be spending a fair amount of time in a 4WD crossing some bumpy surfaces. This is the best way to see the sights in and around Uyuni, and is all part of the adventure.
  • In Bolivia (especially in Uyuni), quite often things don’t go to plan. For example, an attraction may be closed for the day with no notice or reason. Although this doesn’t happen very often, please be prepared for the possibility.
  • Making your way across the Andean Desert and salt flats isn’t exactly luxurious. Temperatures in the area can be very cold, especially at night, so bring warm clothes with you. Meals are simple, toilet facilities are basic, showers can be cold, and the multi-share accommodation is dormitory-style. This is all part of the adventure. Without a doubt, this amazing experience will be one of the highlights of your trip to South America.
