Departure to the Eduardo Abaroa National Reserve in the region of South Lipez. The reserve is one of the most important tourist attractions of Bolivia because of its out-of-this-world landscapes. Here, visitors can explore a terrain unlike no other, filled with arid and expansive deserts, as well as glacial lagoons that invoke a beauty emblematic of this region.
Departure to the Green Lagoon. This lagoon, which illuminates a color that is reminiscent of a dreamy emerald, is situated at about 4,350 meters above sea level with a surface of 17 km². The reason for its fluorescent-like appearance is its drastically high level of magnesium that are contained in the geological formations of the area, accentuating the colorful contrast between the mountainous volcanoes and the lagoon.
After enjoying the stunning aesthetic of the Green Lagoon, embark on a journey to the Salvador Dali Desert. This desert sits at 4,660 meters above sea level within the Valley of Dali. Because of this desert’s various red shades throughout its landscape, it has been named Salvador Dali Desert after the famous Spanish painter.
Depart onto the outer region of the Salar of Chalviri where you will able to visit the thermal waters of Polkes. These waters offer visitors a unique opportunity to immerse their bodies in these curative waters at more than 4,000 meters above sea level.

Visit Sol de Mañana (Sun of Tomorrow) – Situated at about 4,850 meters above sea level, this site has an abundance of volcanic activity which include geysers and fumaroles, result in a gap in the planet’s crust which causes sulfurous gases to rise. Due to its geothermic properties, it is being considered as a future site for producing renewable electricity for the entire country – hence its name, Sun of Tomorrow.
Drive to the notorious Red Lagoon – located at an altitude of 4,278 meters above sea level, this lagoon has a unique semblance to a luminescent ruby due to the presence of red algae that feeds the 30,000 flamingos sheltered here. The breathtaking view of the lagoon and flamingos is complemented by the massive active Ollague volcano, which oversees the lagoon.
Depart for the Siloli Desert. Situated at 4,000 meters above sea level, this barren desert accompanied by its strong icy winds propounds a beautiful emptiness with amazing geological structures. Among these is the Rock Tree, which built from volcanic sedimentary formations and shaped by aggressive erosion, which is a highlight of the desert because of its fascinating and mysterious inception.
