Itinerary

Cycling the Salt Flats
As with Quito, Ecuador, La Paz, Bolivia is situated at a very high altitude- some parts of the city are at over 4100m above sea level - so if your section begins here, please arrive a few days before your section begins in order to acclimatize.
A few days after pedalling out of La Paz, our intrepid riders will have the unique opportunity of cycling and camping on the other-worldly, Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat. Keep an eye out for pink flamingos!
A rest day in Uyuni will give the cyclists further opportunity to explore the Salar if they wish or the unique train cemetery, before turning their wheels south for a 6 day trek into Northern Argentina and the end of the section at Salta, a sophisticated town blessed with some of the country's best preserved colonial architecture.
