Nestled in the heart of South America, Bolivia is an untouched jewel waiting to be explored. Bolivia’s landscapes are curiously fascinating. The Andes languidly stretches across the country, interspersed by the Altiplano desert plains; while the Amazonian rainforest boasts a kaleidoscope of fauna and flora.
Lake Titicaca is the sparkling gem of Bolivia with its turquoise waters lapping the shores of Copacabana town. A boat trip across the lake to Isla del Sol will lead you to ancient Inca ruins, ethnic villages and the most breathtaking scenery. Along the southern shore of the lake lies the sacred area of Tiwanaku – a UNESCO-acclaimed Pre-Columbian archaeological site.
The world-famous Salar De Uyuni salt flats, located in the south-west, are a photogenic splendour with their ever-changing landscapes and lighting. This vast white desert is home to a salt hotel, natural hot springs and beautiful, pink flamingos.
With its combination of quirky cafés, modern restaurants, traditional markets and colonial architecture, La Paz is the cultural capital of Bolivia. Backdropped against the snow-capped Altiplano peaks, popular attractions include the world’s highest cable car boasting panoramic views and the famous Witches Market, where you can pick up interesting potions and bizarre souvenirs.
Dare-devils can cycle the treacherous, winding terrain of Yungas Road (more grimly known as ‘Death Road’) connecting La Paz to Coroico.
Just outside of La Paz, lies a carpet of clay and sandstone stalagmites named Valley of the Moon. The dramatic landscape makes for interesting walking tours and trails through the rocky valley.
Discover the historical treasures and cultural attractions of the beautiful capital, Sucre.
Santa Cruz is a melting-pot of modernity and tradition - home to Bolivia’s best nightlife and cuisine. Explore the Tarija wine region in the southern highlands where you can sample the finest reserves.
