Bolivia – If you fancy a seaside holiday with a difference, these vintage Airstream campervans will take you on a magic adventure through this South American salt-sea landscape. But don’t bother packing your trunks.
Innovative tour operators may not have worked out a way to offer walking on water, but the latest proposition from upmarket adventure expert Exsus does make sleeping on a salt sea possible for the first time. From next month, three vintage Airstream campervans – revamped to incorporate a bedroom, bathroom (with hot water), living space and mini bar – will enable visitors to explore the beautiful White Sea of Salt near Uyuni, Bolivia. Previously, the only accommodation was basic, in villages around the salt flats. Towed by four wheel drives that also transport gourmet chefs and guides, the campervans will take visitors far from other tourists to the heart of the 4,000 square mile dry sea. Which means you get this view – and awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets – all to yourself.
Exsus (020 7337 9010; www.exsus.com) offers a ten-night package, with two nights at the salt flats and flights from the UK, from £3,995 per person (based on four sharing).
