An action-packed trip for those with less time to spare, this 9-day tour introduces the highlights of Bolivia’s varied landscapes.
Undoubtedly rougher around the edges than the rest of its Andean neighbours, Bolivia’s dramatic scenery and fascinating indigenous cultures are too often overlooked in favour of travel in nearby Peru or northern Chile. That being said, for true Andean authenticity, there is nowhere better to be than here. This compact trip begins with a 4-night stay in the capital city of La Paz in the stylish Zona Sur district, during which time you will head outside of the city on a series of day trips, dipping your toes into Bolivia’s diverse eco-systems. Enjoy a full day by the sparkling azure waters of Lake Titicaca where local Quechua peoples believe the Inca civilisation was born, explore the mysterious ruins of Tiwanaku’s enigmatic pyramids, and travel into the cloud forests of the Yungas for an up-close look at Bolivian agriculture and wildlife. Fly south for the main event: the world-famous crystalline expanse of the Salar de Uyuni. Spend two nights here in an ultra-remote luxury lodge for an unforgettable experience.
