Tour description provided by Viator

Visit the train cemetery, the giant cactus island, the town of Colchani, and the amazing salt flats!! Tour leaves at 10 am returns at 7 pm approximately.
Today we will have an unforgettable trip through 4600 sq. miles of fantastic salt landscapes. Prepare your cameras! The dazzling white cloak that is Uyuni's Salt Flats looks like a huge glacier. In winter (dry season from May to October), when the surface is harder, geometrical-like figures shaped from salt particles clustered in polygons show up. In summer (watery season from November to February) the salty desert becomes a giant mirror that melts with the America's purest sky. First we will visit the Trains Cemetery, then we will enter Salt Flats through Colchani, where we can shop handcrafts made out of salt, beyond that; the salt hills. Once in the white desert's vast surface, we will visit the hotel made out of salt, the waterholes, and we will bear to the middle point to visit Incahuasi Island, of volcanic rocks and giant cactuses and a summit that, when escalated, becomes and extraordinary lookout for the salt white plain. After the visit to the island, we will have lunch and in the evening, we will return to Uyuni to board the night buses on time for their departures. Arrival back to UYUNI approximately at 19:00 hrs.
