Tupiza – Blue Lagoon

USD215 per person

A truly wonderful experience is to take a tour of our alternative route, better known as Catedral Circuit. It is located in the Sud Lipez region that is little visited by tourists, where you will find very picturesque landscapes with colourful lagoons, and where you will be satisfied to meet a magical nature in a 4×4 with total autonomy.
