Bolivia is a land of superlatives - it's South America's highest, most isolated and rugged nation and boasts some of the world's driest, saltiest and swampiest natural landscapes. Add to this one of the largest indigenous populations in the continent and you have an adventurous traveller's paradise.
Visit La Paz, one of the world's highest capitals and spend time in world-class museums, haggle in traditional street markets, marvel at the stunning views over the city and meet up with the Ayamara Indian's as you pass through the Bolivian Highlands.
Where Bolivia truly excels is in the surreal landscapes of the Uyuni salt flats and the multi-hued Laguna Colorada. If you'd like to combine a tour of Bolivia with Peru and Chile too, our Highlights of Bolivia private tour will take you from Puno and Lake Titicaca through some of Bolivia's most impressive scenery to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile where you can continue your South America adventure even further.
Spend time in Potosi, one of the highest cities in the world and explore the miners' market of Calvario before heading to the mines themselves. Potosi is well known for its exploration of silver, which dates back to colonial days and is still maintained today using the same tools. Bolivia's salt flats are one of the country's biggest draw cards and a great place to take some entertaining photos. Watch the flamingos of Laguna Colorada and stare up at the Licancahur volcano as you travel south towards neighbouring Chile.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to others, no problem. The tour guides were great and the service provided by the porters/chefs, etc, on the Inca Trail was amazing. I felt so lazy! There is just so much to see in Peru & Bolivia, and with guides like Roberto, Wilbur & Huber, you really get the full experience.”
