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.Read More

We had a great time and it helped that the group got along so well. Our Guide Christian was well organised, reliable and liked by everyone. He was super efficient in getting us to our various destinations on time. He also knew lots of excellent restaurants so we were always sure of good meals. He managed to get the balance right between being very much part of the group but also standing back as well.
The various guides (Inca, Uyuni) were all very professional and friendly, in particular Sante (Inca). The drivers were also reliable. The only negative comments are regarding the hotel in La Paz and the dormitory on the last night in the desert before crossing from Bolivia to Chile. These were below the standards of the rest of the accommodation. I can be more forgiving of the dormitory but I think a better hotel could have been chosen in La Paz.”
Christian is a fantastic tour guide, always going above and beyond to help everyone in our group with their questions/needs etc.
The tour was excellent and thankfully great weather the entire trip. We really enjoyed it. ”
Wilson was one of the best guides I have come across during any trip. He was always helpful and gave us a lot of insights of the countries we visited. He even helped me apply for the Brazil visa as I couldn't do that in the home country. I was able to visit Brazil just because of his help.”

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.
Recommended places to visit in Bolivia
The landlocked country of Bolivia is home to dramatic landscapes of high-altitude lakes, surprisingly coloured lagoons and expansive salt pans making it a particularly photogenic travel destination. Here are some of our favourite spots to get you started.
Breathtaking in every sense of the word, La Paz, which sits at a staggering altitude of around 3,500m, is a vibrant hub of activity and commerce with colourful markets and indigenous culture. Houses cling to impossibly steep cliff faces while old colonial buildings and churches stand majestically in plazas across the city, giving it a wonderful mix of culture and natural beauty. Make the most of your time here by strolling through the narrow alleys absorbing the atmosphere.
Uyuni Salt Flats
The Uyuni Salt Flats, or Salar de Uyuni as they're known locally, are the largest of their kind in the world. This natural phenomenon has occurred over thousands of year as prehistoric lakes have dried up to leave a thick salt crust. The flatness of the area alone is striking but what really makes it a place of wonder is how the ground reflects the sky when it is seasonally covered with rain water. This makes for some pretty outstanding photo opportunities.
The sparkling expanse of water that is Lake Titicaca is one of Bolivia’s most prized features. Sitting on the border with Peru, there is no shortage of activities here to keep travellers occupied, with boat trips to the lake’s islands, excursions to secret caves and coves and parties on the beach all readily available. Those seeking some adventure should hike up Isla del Sol, home of the Inca God Inti, according to local legend.
Also known as the Red Lagoon, the shallow salt lake of Laguna Colorada is filled with vivid red water, caused by red sediment and the pigmentation of some of its algae. It is regularly frequented by vast numbers of James’s flamingos as well as llamas, alpacas and Andean foxes and cats. Surrounded by rugged mountains and tiny villages, this natural wonder should definitely be on everyone’s bucket list.
