Bolivia Travel Tours & Trips

La Paz - the world's highest 'unofficial' capital city
UNESCO World Heritage-listed colonial city of Sucre
Uyuni Salt Desert's caves and cacti
Tiahuanaco's 'Gateway of the Sun'
The potions of 'Witches’ Market'
  • A country like no other. Spanish colonialism didn't make as great an imprint on Bolivia as neighbouring countries, and the result is a fascinatingly different culture. The land, too, is extraordinary: half altiplano, half jungle, Bolivia is all adventure. Drive the hallucinatory, mesmeric landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni - the worlds largest salt flats, standing 4000 metres above sea level - then head for La Paz's happy chaos. Every street's a market here, the coca-chewing, traditionally dressed, bowler-hatted traders selling everything from the freshest fruit to magic charms. Wandering the kaleidoscopic streets is an addictive pleasure, then head to where it all began: Tiahuanaco, Bolivia's most important ruins and arguably Andean civilisation's birthplace.

  • Why we love Bolivia

    • The native Aymara women in the street markets of La Paz with their brightly coloured dresses offset by a few-sizes-too-small bowler hat
    • Stay at Heath River Lodge, deep in the jungle on the Peru-Bolivia border. It’s a long way from anywhere, four to five hours on a boat, but it’s a nature-lover’s heaven. You’ll see black caiman, capybara (a giant guinea pig), monkeys and brilliant macaws. If you’re lucky, you might even get a glimpse of a jaguar
    • Drive the hallucinatory, mesmeric landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni - the worlds largest salt flats, standing 4000 metres above sea level
    • Witness La Paz's happy chaos. Every street's a market here, the coca-chewing, traditionally dressed, bowler-hatted traders selling everything from the freshest fruit to magic charms
    • Tiahuanaco, Bolivia's most important ruins and arguably Andean civilisation's birthplace
