The "Highlights Of Bolivia" tour starts in Santa Cruz De La Sierra and ends in Santa Cruz. The "Highlights Of Bolivia" tour is a local culture trip that takes 15 days. You will travel through Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru and visit Samaipata, La Paz, Isla Del Sol and 8 other destinations. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Landlocked Bolivia is a quintessential South American country, with immense landscapes and a strong indigenous culture. Discover its many highlights on this wide-ranging adventure.

We visit Amboró National Park, which has almost unparalleled biodiversity, and the charming (albeit rustic) gateway town of Samaipata, which provides access to the pre-Columbian Unesco site of El Fuerte. Nowhere else can you find salt flats of comparable scale to Salar de Uyuni: our comprehensive three-day 4x4 trip reveals multi-coloured lagoons, cacti islands and spouting geysers.

In contrast to these natural wonders are the cities of Sucre, Potosi and La Paz, whose heritage was shaped by the Incas and Spanish Conquistadores. Finally, we wind down with a night in an ecolodge on Isla del Sol, overlooking the deep, tranquil waters of Lake Titicaca, which are fringed by the 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 three-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.”
