RN Eduardo Avaroa + Salar de Uyuni

I don’t think there’s a more impressive way to enter a country than by doing it on a three-day tour from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile to Uyuni, Bolivia.

We did the tour with Cordillera Traveler and have absolutely no complaints about them. In a jeep we drove across the altiplano, through the Reserva Nacional de Fauna Andina Eduardo Avaroa, reaching almost 5000m above sea level. In the jeep we had our driver Felix, a French couple, a Canadian guy, an Australian girl living in London and us.

There were so many beautiful sites that we never drove for more than 30 minutes to an hour before getting out for another photo shoot. We got basic lodging, but you really don’t need more. Our driver Felix was very informative and made sure the scenery got even more dramatic by the songs he played in the car. We seldom felt like talking, out of fear we’d miss something while talking to each other. We’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking:

  1. Wow. Your pictures are absolutely stunning. I knew Bolivia was picturesque but I can’t get over some of those shots.
    That border crossing is hilarious!
