Overnight in a deluxe vintage-style Airstream camper - in the middle of the Salar under the stars. Enjoy waking up to the otherworldly landscape of the salt flats bathed in a pink gold at sunrise.

It’s already a real adventure to explore the other-worldly Andean salt flats of Uyuni in southern Bolivia. The yawning, glittering white flats have a silent, haunting atmosphere, almost like something out of science fiction. So what better than to base yourself in an airstream camper, resembling a space capsule but with retro design features which hark back to the 1930s.

But this is not old-style caravan camping: the deluxe campers are equipped with comfortable beds, private bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning and heating. You won’t want for modern techo amenities either, there’s a CD player, IPod socket, and even a fully stocked minibar.

While on the move, you and your guide – who organises your excursions en route - travel in a 4WD vehicle which tows the camper.  The icing on the cake is that your meals are prepared and served by an experienced cook, and you can survey the sunset with a cocktail in your hand.

  • Most Memorable Moment: Difficult to pick out one thing as it was all great! For me probably being on Lake Titicaca, the achievement of a childhood ambition!

    JS
  • Bolivia is very spectacular in terms of scenery but both food and hotels leave something to be desired. Not a problem for us but some might find it below expectations.

Our Expert's Opinion

To make the magical experience of the salt flats even more special, try out the Airstream campers. Compact, cosy and warm for the chilly nights, nothing quite beats looking up at the night sky from such isolation, cocktail in hand. A truly unique way to visit the area.
