Tour the best Uyuni Salt flats 4WD tour with English-speaking guides and staying in community-run salt hotels.
Uyuni is a stunning wilderness area – called Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia – and our four wheel drive jeep tour showcases the highlights.
We pass by beautiful volcanoes, coloured lakes and dramatic deserts, and visit the Stone Tree, Dali’s desert and more.
Amazingly, wildlife survives in this harsh but beautiful environment, with flamingoes, llamas and viscachas living here.
The trip here starts and finishes in Uyuni, but we can easily arrange for the tour to start and/or finished in Chile’s San Pedro de Atacama.
Starting in Bolivia, we head out into the vast southern desert and enjoy the starkly beautiful landscapes of this dramatic desert wilderness.
The network of salt hotels we use are newly built, of a high standard (3/4 star) and in keeping with the local environment.
The hotels were built in partnership with four local communities, each actively involved in their construction and running, and benefit directly from the income.
Combine the best of Colombia: tour the Cocora Valley, hike Los Nevados mountains and then relax at the beach.
Miss out none of Colombia’s highlights as you take in Bogota, the coffee region and Cartagena as well as visit indigenous villages and working farms, called fincas.
The itinerary is fully flexible if you wish to add in more time in one or more areas.
Start with a tour around the incredible Bogota, enjoying its famous museums, food and culture, before setting off for the coffee region.
Enjoy thermal springs and sleepy Salento before you head into Los Nevados National park for a hike into another world.
Los Nevados is a trekking paradise next to the famous coffee region.
Cloud forests, humming birds and volcanoes – plus the incredible frailejones plants – are your visual tapestry.
Walk to real mountain fincas, welcoming farmhouse type accommodations run by people clinging on to their traditional lifestyles, high in the Los Nevados mountains.
Having seen some incredible people, animals and plants, you fly to the famous Colombian Caribbean coast. Here, enjoy yoga, cold drinks and the pounding waves to relax after the hike.
One final day walk to the indigenous El Pueblito village awaits, then we take in the colourful towns of Santa Marta and Cartagena.
You can transfer out and fly to Bogota, and home, or book more nights in Cartagena, or perhaps fly to San Andres or Providencia for some Caribbean island relaxation.

Our Galapagos Island Hopping Tour exceeded my expectations. I loved it!!!!
Haley and I had the most amazing trip anyone could ask for. I was so favorably impressed with every aspect and couldn't have asked for more. The tour guides were wonderful, especially Andrea and Valerio in Puerto Ayora.
I would endorse Andean Trails without question and for travelers to stay in close contact with their travel adviser. Tom Shearman was so helpful and gave me many useful bits of advice.
I was able to witness how the residents are recycling and doing everything within their means to maintain a healthy environment for future generations.
Thank you for making this the most memorable vacation we'll most likely ever have. I treasure these photos.
