I hope this blog gives me the opportunity to share my photography and travel passions and what I have learnt in this journey in the last 20 years.

Atacama Desert and Salar de Uyuni

I am pleased to have now finalised the itinerary for 2015 to the Atacama desert (Chile) and Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia). You can see some of the pictures that I took in my last trip here.

The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America and it is the driest hot desert in the world. El Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world's largest salt flat. The round trip from San Pedro de Atacama to El Salar de Uyuni has some incredible colourful lakes and beautiful desert landscapes.

It is also the oldest desert on earth and has experienced extreme hyperaridity for at least 3 million years, making to it the oldest continuously arid region on earth. This desert is so arid that many mountains higher than 6,000 metres are completely free of glaciers.

Salar de Uyuni

In el Salar de Uyuni, when the surface is dry, it becomes a blinding white expanse of the greatest nothing imaginable, but when there’s little water, the surface perfectly reflects the clouds and the blue Altiplano sky and the horizon disappears. If you are driving across the surface at such times it’s hard to believe that you’re not actually flying through the clouds.

We will be based in San Pedro de Atacama for 6 nights and we will run tours daily tour from our hotel. Then, we will cross to Bolivia and spend a few nights around El Salar de Uyuni retuning to San Pedro again.

The full itinerary, dates and guest photographer will be announced soon.

You can register your interest by dropping me an email. The workshop is fully inclusive of all meals, accommodation and ground transportation as well as all tuition. Places are filled on a first come, first served basis.
