Chile, Bolivia

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).

Customer Reviews


"I went to South America for 6 weeks in November 2014. I found the booking process easy, the members of staff helpful and friendly and the trip itself to be really memorable. The tour leader on my trip was fantastic and would have done anything for us to make it more enjoyable. I'd definitely sign up with Tucan Travel again in the future and would recommend them to anyone."
