We are probably not the first to find out, but the old train that did Calama to Uyuni stopped working 4 months ago and no news on whether it will start again.

A pitty....

Luckily not. We will take a bus from Calama. It will probably be more comfortable if not as exciting!

We managed to get a company called "Frontera del Norte" to take us to Uyuni...well to the Bolivian frontier. Its based in Calama (Antofagasta street with Latorre street)

$6,000 per person to the frontier. Goes Wednesdays and Sundays.
