Duration: 14 Days Route: Santiago to La Paz Style: Adventure Tours Price: US$1,859.00
Surrounded by desert or the expanse of a salt lake it's easy to feel like you've been transported to the moon! On this trip you'll experience Chile's bone-dry Atacama Desert and Bolivia's utterly stunning Salar de Uyuni as well as the contrasting capital cities of both countries.
The tour that we operate in the reverse direction is Desert Horizons (BCP).
