Since completing our unforgettable tour of the Bolivian Salt Flats we’ve been desperate to write about the experience. But every time we tried we felt as though our writing didn’t do the largest and most stunning salt flats in the world justice. In our opinion the Salar de Uyuni should be considered as one of the natural wonders of the world!
Rather than struggling to try and find the words to describe them, we decided it would be more fitting to take you on a photo journey of our tour of the Bolivian Salt Flats. Here are 21 photos that we hope will inspire you to visit.

This is the most remote immigration office we have ever come across! There was simply nothing for miles around as we crossed from Chile to Bolivia apart from this lonely office in the middle of nowhere.
Lakes, Geyzers & Hots Springs
The scenery on the journey to get to the Bolivian Salt Flats was absolutely unbelievable! We were surrounded by stark mountains, vibrantly coloured lakes, interesting rock formations and magnificent wildlife.

Arriving at the Bolivian Salt Flats was like landing on another planet. The landscape is simply surreal and witnessing them riding on top of the jeep made it even more crazy! What an experience.

The Train Graveyard, Uyuni
Just outside the town of Uyuni is this spooky but strangely charming train graveyard. dozens of trains lie abandoned here, slowly rusting away.
