Overview


Landlocked Bolivia is home to some of Latin America’s most dramatic landscapes – this country is full of surprises. From its capital, La Paz – set deep within a canyon with Illimani Mountain dominating the skyline in the background - colonial architecture, and bustling and colourful indigenous markets; to the mystical Lake Titicaca and the truly unique Salt Flats of Uyuni.

This journey takes in the country’s main sights. Start in the country’s tropical city of Santa Cruz, before moving on to beautiful whitewashed Sucre with its colonial grandeur. The otherworldly Uyuni Salt Flats will leave you truly speechless, before you head off to the bustling Bolivian capital before discovering the world’s highest navigable Lake Titicaca, which is home to traditional Aymara villages and surrounded by glacier capped peaks.

Find inspiration for your own trip to Bolivia on this tour; all our itineraries are flexible and can be altered, extended or amended according to your preferences. Alternatively, our team of Destination Experts will be happy to tailor-make a personalised itinerary for your holiday.

Day 3 - Santa Cruz – Sucre
This morning fly to the colonial city of Sucre for a two-night stay. Set in a valley surrounded by low mountains, Sucre could be considered one of Bolivia’s most charming towns.

Day 5 - Sucre – Potosi – Uyuni
This morning you will be driven to Potosi. According to legend, this colonial silver-mining city - once one of the wealthiest cities in the Americas – at one time had enough silver to build a bridge to Spain. With the enormous “Cerro Rico” (Rich Hill) looming over the city, visitors are always reminded of the city’s turbulent history. Lunch is at a local restaurant before being driven onwards to Uyuni.

Day 6 - Uyuni (Salt Flats)
The largest salt flat on Earth; surreal pentagons of crystalline salt extending to the horizon, cacti, flamingos and what feels like the most enormous sky… no wonder it’s considered one of the most extreme and remarkable vistas in Latin America. Visit Incawasi, an island covered by thousands of giant cacti over 100 years old and more than 12-metres tall. In the afternoon visit the Coquesa Mummies and the Thunupa Volcano. 
VIEW ACCOMMODATION
Day 7 - Uyuni – La Paz
Today, depart Uyuni by plane bound for, La Paz. Situated in an enormous canyon overlooked by the Illumani Volcano, this hollow gouged into the Altiplano stands at over 3500-metres above sea level. Clinging to the sides of the canyon are the ramshackle homes of the city’s inhabitants. With a mix of architectural styles, bustling markets, street vendors and street marches, this urban jungle has something to see at every corner.
