Bolivia Tours and Holidays

Discover Bolivia with On The Go Tours

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. It's also a surprising food destination with a varied range of dishes from the mouthwatering with dark chocolate and chorizo sandwiches, to the somewhat unusual with llama tenderloin and pacay, a fruit that tastes like ice-cream.

The surreal landscapes of Bolivia
See the best of Bolivia with us

Where Bolivia truly excels is in the surreal landscapes of the Uyuni salt flats and the multi-hued Laguna Colorada. Measuring an area of over 10,000 sq km, the Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat with a harsh beauty that transforms with the sky and offers endless possibilities for perspective-bending photography. This region of Bolivia is also home to a number of dazzling mineral lakes, including the red Laguna Colorada that changes from a rusty brown to blood-red in the course of a day.

Tour was great. Saw a lot and didn't spend too much time just travelling. Our guide wasn't the best. He spent most of his time studying. However most days we had other guides anyway so managed to get a lot from them. ”

Overall excellent tour and Heidi was great fun. The only thing that I would say is that the majority of the activities were optional. Overall adventure was great ! ”  

Pauline Lowes • Submitted 18 Mar 2015

An Excellent trip and our guide was excellent. The trip was unforgetable and totally enjoyed. Bolivia was outstanding as a country to visit.. Our extra add-on to the Easter Islands was also a great success-so thanks Phil for sorting that too.”

A photographer's dream

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.
