EUROLATINO specialises in high-quality tours in Latin America and has more recently developed trips in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Spain, Italy, Portugal and central Europe. They have created a network of Tour Operators which provide great quality tourist services, security and guarantees in each destination. They aim to provide the best tours with personalised information and travel advice with a specific itinerary at no additional cost.
EUROLATINO are working with TURISMO SENDA ANDINA, a local tour operator in Uyuni and owner of one hotel at the shore of the saltflats and a second hotel in the desert and lagoon area of the National Park Eduardo Avaroa. TURISMO SENDA ANDINA also owns 10 4WD vehicles and 20 high-tech electric bikes, all perfect to create lasting memories of your amazing trip in Uyuni.
The winner and their guest will be going on an E-bike LAGUNAS Trip. Electric bicycles or ‘E-bikes’ are the new trend of transport in terms of sustainable development. They are similar to a conventional bike and are driven by a person in a traditional way, however they simply just add an ingenious feature to the centuries-old crank technology: a rechargeable battery engine that complements the driving speed for the driver – this is particularly handy on a steep hill or on a particularly long drive!
Small, almost hidden engines make longer distances easier to reach, meaning they offer tourists the opportunity to enjoy excursions that were previously impossible and make difficult terrains more manageable. If you are not in tip-top physical condition, an E-bike can help you realise any kind of active holiday.
Please note: The E-bikes Trip will be in small groups with a guide. If the winner and their guest would prefer not to use the E-Bikes, EUROLATINO can offer transport during the excursions. If the winner wants to upgrade their trip, the price difference would need to be paid directly to EUROLATINO.
E-biking LAGUNAS Trip Itinerary:
The winner and their guest will enjoy transportation, full board, excursion in a shared Jeep and 2 nights in a hotel in a Double Room on their LAGUNAS Trip. Please note the following items are not included in the stay: beverages, extras, tips and any other services or products purchased on the trip.
