Chile & Bolivia

Break For The Border

Pure white salt meets blue sky as far as the eye can see: a truly unforgettable experience. Visit the largest salt flats in the world: Uyuni and Atacama.
Head across the Andes to the Atacama desert and beyond to the Chilean coast or north to the other-worldly Salares de Uyuni, the largest salt flats in the world, in Bolivia. On your Atacama desert tour, you'll enjoy volcanoes, flamingos, and the best stargazing in the southern hemisphere.

The Bolivian salt flats of Uyuni are simply one of the wonders of the natural world which you must see in your lifetime. For bon viveurs, we can also arrange tours to Bolivia’s little-known wine region of Tarija.

Our road crossing at the lesser-used Paso de Sico, in Salta province, takes us through some amazing Altiplano landscape: we’re rewarded with views of snow-topped mountains and volcanoes.

A word on crossing the border.

The borders with Chile and Bolivia are only a day’s journey from Salta city. There are regular buses to San Pedro de Atacama, and to the border town of La Quiaca, where you can simply walk across the bridge into Bolivia and continue your journey from there.

But if you need us, we’re here to hold your hand, and design your trip, working with local operators in Bolivia and Chile.

As well as circuits starting and finishing in Salta, we can also arrange private tours linking San Pedro de Atacama and Uyuni if you are heading further north towards La Paz and Peru.
