This is an amazing experience to ride on this unforgetable land scapè. The  beautiful Salar de Uyuni is 12000 km2. (4.085 square miles) the world’s largest salt flat. Riding across it on a motorcycle is a very moving and humbling experience. This tour is available only during the dry season, when the salt flats are not covered in water.

We start our day by riding 3km out of town to the train cemetery. Here we can make great pictures. From here it is onto Colchane a salt processing town, and have a chance to buy some souvenirs made completely from salt.  From here we will enter the great salt flats for a spectacular ride!!

Next stop the salt hotel at Playa Blanca and a photo next to the flags. Another 80km and we arrive at the fish island or as the locals call it Incahausi. This is a true oasis, covered with giant columnar cacti. Some are over a thousand years old. We explore the island taking photos then take our lunch at Mongos restaurant. After we head back across the salt flats to our office in Uyuni and end the tour.
