La Paz to Santiago and Eclipse
12 days
Bolivia, Chile - Trip code AXE

La Paz to Santiago and Eclipse

Witness the spectacle of a total solar eclipse in Chile's Elqui Valley, well known for its clear skies and excellent stargazing opportunities. Work up to the main event by travelling through some of South America's most epic landscapes, including Uyuni's dazzling white salt flats and the moonscapes of the Atacama Desert. See the flamingos at Southern Bolivia's Laguna Colorada, their pink feathers almost blending into the red colours of the lake, and experience the boiling and bubbling geysers of El Tatio in northern Chile. These wide open, remote landscapes are perfect for our eclipse viewing, which we will observe with a local astronomer.

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in La Paz

Customers who have booked their own flights will arrive and check-in at the first night's accommodation in La Paz. Customers who have booked flights through Explore will spend the first night of the trip on an overnight flight.

Accommodation: Rey Palace Hotel(or similar)

Day 2 - Free morning; afternoon walk of the city

This morning sees the arrival of any customers who have booked flights through Explore. After a free morning to relax and catch up on sleep, this afternoon we will take a leisurely walking tour of the bowl-shaped 'city that touches the sky', with the downtown area located at around 3600m altitude. Luckily our walk is all downhill! This is a walking tour with a difference, as we are joined by two of the city's shoe shiners to take us through the popular local neighbourhoods and markets of La Paz, including the popular 'Belen dining room' where rows of food stalls sell lunches very cheaply to the working population in the area. It provides a fascinating look at this mad city, outside of the usual tours. Our Explore Leader will be on hand to translate from Spanish.

Day 3 - Day at leisure; visit the Tiahuanaco ruins or the sub-tropical Yungas valley

Today is free to explore La Paz. It's a good opportunity to head to some of the grand churches in the old centre, including the beautifully decorated San Francisco church located in the busy plaza of the same name. You could also take in the pre-Columbian gold and silver artefacts in the Museo de Oro, and the fascinating exhibits in the Casa de Pedro Domingo Murillo. Alternatively, you may wish to visit the ruins of Tiahuanaco, dating back to approximately 1500 BC. It was one of the most important pre-Inca civilisations and is considered to be one of the most developed in its time. The Kalasaya temple, the Gate of the Sun, the Akapana pyramid are amongst some of the buildings to explore and this can be followed by visiting the nearby pottery and stoneware museum. Alternatively, take a full day trip to the sub-tropical area of Las Yungas, a region characterised by its lush vegetation, its many rivers and waterfalls leading to the Amazon basin, and its diverse flora and fauna. A day trip to Las Yungas is a huge contrast to the high mountains of the Andes, and this day trip includes a lunch at a local coffee company, as well as a visit to the coffee plantations, and a trip to the wildlife refuge at La Senda Verde, home to over 450 rescued animals.

Day 4 - Fly to Uyuni; discover the Salt Flats and stay in a salt hotel

Leaving the city early this morning, we drive up to the airport in El Alto and take our 1.5 hour flight to Uyuni, a small town at 3700m altitude that comes alive with the travellers passing through to visit the famous salt flats. We drive straight out from the airport in 4x4 vehicles we are swiftly transported into another world - the landscape of the salt lake is surreal in the extreme, with the bright blue of the sky contrasting sharply with the blinding white salt crust. The peak of Volcan Tunupa (5400m) looms far in the distance. Crossing the flats we head for Incahuasi Island, where we find an expanse of huge cacti occupying an isolated island in the heart of the Salar. These plants have been here for millennia, and some tower some 6 metres above the floor of the plains, no mean feat given that it is estimated that they only grow one centimetre a year! Tonight we will be sleeping in a beautiful hotel right on the edge of the flats - and its quirky structure is made almost entirely out of salt, right down to the llama sculptures in the hallways!

Day 5 - Drive to Villamar via remote villages

We set off south in our 4x4s this morning, towards our remote hotel tonight near Villamar, at 4022m altitude. Our first stop is the atmospheric 'train cemetery', a relic of the time when Uyuni was a distribution hub for trains transporting goods through Bolivia to the Pacific Ocean. From here we head through the high altiplano - this entire region is peppered with colourful rock formations, volcanoes and lagoons and we will stop to take some walks and explore the landscape en route. We also make some stops at the small villages including Culpina K and San Cristobal as well as their old Jesuit churches. After our visits to these villages we continue to Villamar and our hotel.

Day 6 - Explore the coloured lagoons; hike in the Moon Valley in Atacama (Chile)

On the way towards the Bolivia-Chile border today, we cross the surreal and tortured lands of the Siloli Desert. Our journey takes in the amazing blood-red depths of the Laguna Colorada, home to rare James flamingos who feed on the rich red algae that cover the lake. From here we continue past Challviri Lagoon, onto the windswept views and spectacular waters of the Laguna Verde, lying before the imposing slopes of the Lincancabur Volcano (5960m). The wind can change the lake's colour, from a deep azure to a vivid turquoise, as it whips across the ripping surface. We head to the Chilean border at Hito Cajon, where we meet with our new transport and continue to the incredible vistas of the Moon Valley in the Atacama Desert. We'll be doing an easy walk around the sculptures and wind-carved rocks of the desert, watching the sun set as it casts its light around the dunes. We then head to our hotel in the town of San Pedro de Atacama.

Accommodation: Casa de Don Tomas(or similar)

Day 7 - See the fumaroles of the Tatio geysers; optional trip to the Atacama salt lake

Before the arrival of the Spanish San Pedro was the centre of the Atacama culture, and its dusty streets and evocative setting still exudes an air of times long past. An early departure by bus this morning sees us heading through the desert landscapes of the remarkable Atacama, one of the most barren and dramatic natural features in the entire country. Our destination is the remarkable El Tatio Springs, a geothermal field of spouting geysers and steaming fumaroles surrounded by a vista of volcanic mountains. Arriving in time for the sunrise affords us an opportunity to witness these active geysers in the golden light of the rising sun. Returning to San Pedro via the volcanic landscapes we then have the rest of the day free to enjoy at our leisure. One possible option for this afternoon is to take a visit out to the extensive salt flats of the Salar de Atacama, the third largest area of salt flats on the planet. Rich in minerals, the lake is home to flocks of pink flamingos during the winter months and the air out here is so dry that the views across the Salar have to be seen to be believed.

Day 8 - Drive to Calama and fly to La Serena; evening visit to Mamalluca Observatory

An early start awaits us this morning, as we have a 1.5 hour drive to Calama before our morning flight to La Serena, with a touchdown in Santiago. We will arrive at La Serena in the afternoon and have a walking tour of Chile's second-oldest city. A stroll down through the downtown area reveals some beautiful colonial and neo-colonial architecture in the stone churches, as well as the peaceful plazas and tree-lined streets. We then head to our accommodation to rest after our early start - it has a magnificent location on the expansive Lake Puclaro, an artificial lake created by a dam on the Elqui River. In the evening we will be visiting the Mamalluca Observatory, the first in Chile to be open to the general public. Located at the heart of the Elqui Valley, under the incredible atmospheric conditions and clear skies of the region, the visit includes talks with astronomers and a demonstration of the Aura 12 inch telescope. This is a taster for tomorrow, on the big eclipse day. The observatory may be busy due to the number of people in the area during the next few days.

Accommodation: Hotel Puclaro(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 9 - View the total eclipse with a local astronomer

A total eclipse of the sun will take place today, July 2nd 2019, which we will observe from the grounds of our accommodation. Eclipse glasses will be provided to allow you to view this natural wonder safely, and we will be accompanied by an expert local astronomer to provide more information and answer any questions you may have. Although the skies in this area of Chile are renowned for their atmospheric quality, we are unable to make any guarantees regarding the weather conditions and the likelihood of seeing the eclipse. The Moon orbits the Earth almost 13 times a year, and an eclipse happens if it lines up exactly with the Earth and the Sun. Solar eclipses occur at New Moon, when the Moon is between Earth and the Sun. Lunar eclipses occur at Full Moon, when Earth is between the Sun and the Moon. A total eclipse of the sun occurs when the moon appears the same size as the sun, thus completely obscuring the light. Eclipses do not take place every month because the orbits of the Moon and Earth are tilted at an angle. Most of the time, the line-up is not precise enough for an eclipse. When an eclipse is total, the solar corona can be seen as a white halo around the black disk of the Moon. Near the beginning and end of total and annular eclipses, the thin, visible slice of the Sun appears broken up into blobs of light. These blobs are called 'Baily's beads' after the British astronomer Francis Baily. They happen because the edge of the Moon is not smooth but jagged with mountain peaks. When just one bead is visible, the effect is often likened to a diamond ring. The eclipse will take place at approximately 3.23pm, after which point we will head out to taste the regional specialities at one of the many pisco factories in the Elqui Valley.

Day 10 - Free morning in the Elqui Valley; fly to Santiago

Waking up to the views over the Puclaro Lake, we have a free morning to enjoy this beautiful location. The hotel actually doubles as a kitesurfing and windsurfing centre due to the winds that pass through the area, but bearing in mind that it will be winter in Chile in July these activities may not be open, and will certainly be cold! There are walking trails out to the dam, which is well worth a visit, as well as a swimming pool to relax in. In the afternoon we head back to La Serena airport to take our 1 hour flight to Santiago. We will have a full evening free in Chile's capital, which lies in the imposing shadow of the majestic Andes. You should have time for a wander around before dinner, and taking in the old city at night is a lovely way to explore - the Alameda area contains an array of fine buildings, including the impressive Presidential Palace and the monastery of San Francisco. Food in Santiago is about as good as it gets in Chile, being both a coastal destination as well as close to the pampas (farming areas) - so you're guaranteed great seafood as well as juicy steaks and other meat like guanaco or lamb.

Day 11 - Fly to La Paz; free time in the city

This morning we fly back to La Paz, where we have our last free day in the city before departure. It's a good opportunity to get some Andean souvenirs before departure, perhaps in the Witches Market, or to take one of the cable cars up to the outer reaches of the city - views over the sprawl are really quite impressive, with the snow-capped Illimani Volcano towering over the city from a height of 6402m. This evening, reflect upon the highlights of the last 10 days with Bolivia's version of a Pisco Sour - the 'Chuflay' - made from singani (a grape based liquor) and ginger ale.

Accommodation notes

Booking a Single Room

All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation. Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date. For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.


Some of the accommodation on this trip is a real highlight. We stay in the incredible salt hotel near Uyuni, where the domed roof of each room is made from bricks of salt, and salt statues adorn the corridors. The Hotel Mallku Cueva in Villamar has a stunning remote location, built into the rock face (the word 'cueva' means cave in Spanish). It is one of the only hotels for miles around and you should be prepared for it to be a little more basic in keeping with its isolation. At the Hotel Puclaro, your eclipse viewing location, their rooms are all little standalone 'cubes', with doors directly to the outside and views to Lake Puclaro. Due to the size of the group, we are not able to accommodate everyone in a twin room - some of the rooms are cabins with 6 beds, some have 3 beds and others are single rooms. It is very likely that you will be in multi-share rooms, with members of the same sex, for these two nights.
