Saltier than chips… saltier than beef jerky… even saltier than the sea! This is Salar de Uyuni: nothing more, nothing less, than the BIGGEST salt flat on Earth!
Located in Bolivia, Uyuni is synonym with blinding landscapes of intense and seemingly endless white. As the sun shines and reflects on the ground (similar effect as in the snow), your vision has to get used to an almost permanent state of glare. Those reflections do not take from the beauty of Uyuni – best explored by 4×4 (unless you’re a hardcore biker and feel like a challenge!), a day spent at Uyuni means off-roading in the saltiest of terrains, spotting the odd giant cactus (at an oasis like spot in the middle of the salar) and getting close to friendly creatures such as vicunas.
Hands down, one of the highlights of our travels in Bolivia!
