Start and end in Santa Cruz De La Sierra, the trip "Highlights Of Bolivia" is a guided local culture trip that takes 15 days. You will be traveling through Sucre, Samaipata, Uyuni and 6 other destinations in Peru and Bolivia. "Highlights Of Bolivia" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Landlocked Bolivia is a quintessential South American country both in terms of the immensity of its landscapes and its strong indigenous culture. Although little-known, Amboró National Park boasts almost unparalleled bio-diversity and the charming, albeit rustic, gateway town of Samaipata also gives access to the nearby Pre-Columbian UNESCO site of El Fuerte. Nowhere else on Earth can you find salt flats of comparable scale to Salar de Uyuni; a comprehensive three-day 4WD adventure reveals its multi-coloured lagoons, cacti islands and spouting geysers. In stark contrast to these natural wonders are the vibrant cities of Sucre, Potosi and La Paz whose heritage was shaped by both the Incas and the Spanish Conquistadores. Finally, wind down with a night in an eco-lodge on the Isla del Sol overlooking the deep, tranquil waters of Lake Titicaca - fringed by snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Real.

Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:"Bolivia is one of my favourite countries. I have led two expeditions here and I just love the diversity, from the snow-capped Andean mountains and salt flats to cloud forests in the Amazon. This trip offers an all-encompassing 3-day tour of Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flats, where you can see bubbling geysers, dormant volcanoes and vibrant lagoons. You'd be hard-pushed to find anywhere else like it on the planet."
