Description

The Deserts of the Andes are one of our planet’s masterpieces; from Atacama to South Lipez, from Uyuni salt flat to Isluga National Park, this expedition is an invitation to a multicolored mineral world and untouched nature.

Each day will surprise us with new and amazing landscapes: six thousand meter volcanoes, red, blue and green lakes and lagoons, salt ranges, thermal springs and ancient native villages. A close contact with the surprising flora and fauna is guaranteed, since we will spend many days walking in this incredible nature. Discovering people is one of this trip’s highlights: Quechua as well as Aymara families still live in the region with their ancient traditions and cultures.

In brief, a magic region for an outstanding expedition and a unique travel experience.
