Into Bolivia's great white expanse
Read about our travels across Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni, where ancient Incas and British-built locomotives once trod.
Salar de Uyuni
4,000 square miles of glistening salt might not sound like everyone's idea of a bucket list item, but it isn't just the white stuff that makes this place so special. Imagine escaping to a place where the only things to disturb your view are the occasional shadows of distant mountains and outlines of isolated islands. With nothing but sparkling white salt and a big blue sky, there is nothing to distract, no obstructions or nothing to enclose you. It is this overwhelming feeling of pure liberation and isolation, which stands in stark contrast to our day-to-day lives, that attracts visitors from far and wide to an ocean of salt in the middle of nowhere, 3,650 metres above sea level. The Salar de Uyuni is a genuinely astounding place and unique travel experience, that has to be seen first-hand to fully understand its special appeal.
