Classic Best of Bolivia: La Paz, Lake Titicaca & Uyuni

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,264

Landlocked in the heart of the Andes Mountains, Bolivia remains a well-kept secret. Often overshadowed by its neighbours, Bolivia is a traveller’s dream, beautiful and full of culture. Take in all the key sights over 8 days, from spectacular ruins to eerie salt lakes, and the world’s highest capital, La Paz.


Take in all the key sights of Bolivia over 8 days, from spectacular ruins to eerie salt lakes, and the world’s highest capital, La Paz.

Start by exploring La Paz, located right at the foot of the Andes. While the city is fascinating just to wander at leisure, a full day city tour includes stops at Murillo Square and the Witches Market, where spirituality and commerce meet in a market unlike any other. You’ll also trek out to the bizarre alien landscapes of the Moon Valley.

From the moon to the sun, cross Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake, to Sun Island. Here, you’ll learn about traditional life past and present this high in the Andes. The island is also considered the birthplace of the Inca Empire. Drink from its fountain to be blessed with health and luck! Your next stop, Uyuni, shows off Bolivia at its most remote and beautiful. Its real claim to fame is the nearby salt plain. More than just a natural wonder, this 12,000 square kilometre expanse is home to numerous industries and a surprising variety of wildlife. Where else can you stay in a hotel built almost entirely out of salt bricks (as you will on this night)?

Journey back across the salt flats, overnighting at a comfortable hotel in the Lipez gaps. Then cross the geyser field of Sol de Manana and see the surrealcolours of Laguna Verde before spending one last night in Uyuni, where you can reflect on your spectacular trip, or visit the National Museum of Archaeology to fill in any gaps before you depart.
