Bolivia Adventure Travel | Crossing the Altiplano | Overview


Journey the path less traveled across the High Altiplano from Chile's Atacama desert to Bolivia's remote and desolate Salar de Uyuni. Explore the stark beauty of one of the driest places on earth. Stargaze crystal clear skies. Discover hidden wetlands—a refuge for wildlife in the driest desert on earth.  

Traveling with just a handful of like-minded explorers, you will stay in remote shelters, purpose-built for this journey.
