 Explore the salt flats by bike, where the hard crust allows cyclists to glide over the surface, making for an exhilarating ride.

During the dry season, the ground cracks into hexagonal patterns of salt crystals, creating a mesmerizing natural mosaic perfect for photography and exploration.

This season is ideal for visiting nearby cactus-studded Incahuasi Island, a hilly outpost in the heart of the flats that offers panoramic views of the salt desert.

This season also enhances the beauty of sunsets and sunrises, making every moment on the flats a photogenic marvel.
