Day 2- Antofagasta to Iquique
After a great nigth of rest you will start the ride next to the Pacific Ocean, The route is twisty and fun full of corners for a nice picture and even for a good swimg.
We hope you had a nice dinner at the many restaurants in Antofagasta. Today you will start your ride along the Pacific Ocean. The road is twisty and fun, with lots of stops for photos or a swim in the Pacific Ocean.
Tocopilla makes for a good lunch stop with fresh seafood. Before reaching Iquique you will see the huge sand dune in the background of the town.
Day 3- Iquique to Oruro (Bolivia)
Be prepared for a day with dramatic changes, start on the ocean level to go up to 4.000 m over sea level and your first border crossing to Bolivia.
The vast of the desert and the incredible landscapes of the Andes Mountains will make for a unique day.
Day 4- Oruro to Potosi
Bolivia, a hidden gem only a few tourists are coming to explore this country. Be aware of the traffic in town and enjoy the simplicity of the people. For the night you are staying in Potosi a town at the base of the Cerro Rico Mountain (Rich Mountain) whose silver wealth made Potosí one of the largest cities in the world in the early 17th century and whose silver and tin deposits the city is still dependent on today.
Day 5- Pototsi to Uyuni
If you are interested you should visit one of the silver mines around Potosi in the morning.
We call it “The Tail of the Guanaco” a very twisty road that brings a smile on every ones face. This road is made for motorcycles. Watch out for wild life on or next to the road. When you reach the town of Uyuni early you could take a little side trip to visit the old rusty steam train grave yard just outside of town. The dry air preserved the massive steel engines beautifully.
Day 6- Uyuni (rest day to explore the salt flat)
For two nights you will experience an incredible view from the hotel overlooking the largest salt flat in the world, the Salar de Uyuni. This unique hotel is made entirely out of salt bricks. The walls, the furniture, even the beds are made from salt.
At 3650m the Salar de Uyuni is your playground for the day. Enjoy every minute! Riding on salt is so much fun.
The Salar de Uyuni looks like a frozen lake. It is almost free of animals and birds and only some flamingos settled in this unreal land scape. The Salar is characterized by snow white salt, rock formations and the cactus covered island “Incahuasi”, almost in the center of the lake. Visit this island and be amazed about the 100 and more year’s old cactus on this island.
The Salar is dry from June to December except of some water holes and even trucks can drive on the thick salt crust.
Day 7- Uyuni to Calama
Today´s ride start with crossing the “Puna”, the high plateau or the high desert, in the Andes. The vast emptiness change with incredible rock formations.
Around lunch time you reach the border to Chile in Ollague. The heavenly road down to Calama begins at 4000 m. You pass through several salt flats with incredible wild life. Watch for Guanacos, Lamas, Alpacas and even Flamingos.
The desert city of Calama is located in the middle of the Atacama Desert. This mining town with an annual rainfall of 0 mm is one of the driest places on earth with no vegetation around the city.
Nearby is Chuquicamata the largest open pit coper mine in the world. Calama is not a decidedly tourist town. However, a tour of the huge copper mine is impressive.
Day 8- Calama to San Pedro de Atacama (Tatio Gaisers)
It´s a short riding day today to San Pedro de Atacama. So, yes you could take a guided tour through the coper mine Chuquicamata, or take a side trip to the Geysers of Tatio before arriving in San Pedro de Atacama. After you settled in your hotel, stroll through town and enjoy a delicious dinner at the many restaurants in town
Day 9- San Pedro de Atacama (rest/exploration day)
Explore San Pedro and the surrounding attractions.
Visit the nature reserve for flamingos at the salt lakes. Another great ride is Lake Miscanti. At 3890m you look at a colorful scene. The blue lake and the surrounding yellow grass, mixed with the orange sand is fantastic. And Valle de Luna for the sunset. With the soft light of the sun going down, the Valley is glowing and becomes surreal. The bizarre dune formations with the white tips look like frozen in time. You think, snow in the desert? The white on top of the dunes and on the road is salt.
Or enjoy the Spa and a relaxed day at the hotel and in San Pedro.
Day 10- San Pedro de Atacama to Antofagasta
Of course there is a comfortable asphalt road back to the Pacific Ocean but we like to show you how it is to ride on a salt road. Dirt mixed with salt makes a fantastic ride. We riding the driest desert in the world, crossing now the “Cordillera de la Sal” one of the biggest salt mining operations is, before arriving back to Antofagasta. Try one of the restaurants and enjoy a finger licking grilled octopus dinner.
