What our specialists say...

A comprehensive trip covering some of the key highlights of Bolivia, one of Latin America's most diverse countries, yet also one of the least visited by international tourists. This itinerary is ideal for the first time visitor or perhaps for those who have visited other parts of the continent and are looking for something a bit different. Bolivia is almost a microcosm of Latin America, with colourful markets, indigenous culture, dense tropical forest and colonial cities - the only thing it lacks is a coast! Using La Paz as a base you will travel north to the Amazon, west to Lake Titicaca, east to Sucre and Potosi and then south to the remote Salar de Uyuni.

We recommend this trip for:

  • La Paz

  • Sucre
  • Potosi
