Two day Salt lake tour in Uyuni

Hi, I am travelling to Uyuni on an overnight bus from La Paz and am hoping to do a two day tour while there. Can any one recommend good two full day tours of the area. Thanks! Lena

Hi [VT member 74669], After you get off the bus in Uyuni you will find several tour operators providing tours of the Salar de Uyuni (salt lake) ranging up to 4 days. We did the 3 day tour finishing in San Pedro de Atacama in Chile but if you have only 2 days I'm sure there'll have one suitable. They are very cheap (ours was US$70 for 3 days including transport, food, acommodation and tour guide in 2000) and you will see the spectacular white landscape of the salt lake, islands covered in cactuses, snow-capped volcanoes, lakes with flamingoes, llamas, guanacoes, and if you make it far enough, hot springs and geysers at 5000m altitude (16,000 ft.) have a wonderful time. Also you may like to check out the famous jail tour in La Paz. I'm kicking myself for not finding out about it till after I'd left.
