Valley of the Moon and Uyuni

Valley of the Moon and Uyuni

I'm hoping to be in San Pedro de Atacama mid February and have only 4 or 5 days before I need to be in La Paz.

Does anyone know I'd there are any tours leaving SPA arriving in La Paz which cover the Valley of the Moon and Uyuni salt flats?

The Valley of the Moon you can do in a couple of hours from SPA. For Uyuni, it will take about 3 days, and then you can bus or fly to La Paz.

You are not giving SPA much time. I spent 4 nights there, and wasn't bored.

Try googling for tour operators in SPA - there are several, and almost all can arrange the Uyuni trip (as well as all the local ones).

im also planning a trip to atacama for about 3 nights, then somehow getting to uyuni for another 3 nights. we are planning to go in march. my main goal of travel is to get photos of the uyuni reflections. because of my time limitations, i am thinking of flying from atacama(calama) to la paz, then to uyuni. because i'm not taking the 4x4 will i be missing a lot? thank you,

There won't be flights from Calama to La Paz. You could take the three day tour from San Pedro de Atacama ending in Uyuni and go to La Paz from there. There is also a bus from Calama to Uyuni, it is a long trip, and do a tour from Uyuni to the salt flats. But taking the tour from SPA would be the best use of your time.
