This 10-day tour provides an introduction to the fascinating culture of Bolivia, and its local communities. Starting with the cultural and industrial centres of Sucre and Potosi, you will learn about Bolivia’s turbulent history, from its indigenous heritage to it colonialization by the Spanish, to its present-day focus on mining and agriculture. Once acquainted with Bolivia’s history it’s off to the ruggedly beautiful south-west where you will explore the lunar-like landscapes of the Uyuni Salt Flats. Continue your journey, via the thriving city of La Paz, to the bright blue waters of the famous Lake Titicaca, high up in the Andean Mountains.
This itinerary is a more adventurous option than our Bolivian Odyssey tour as you travel on local transport, including trains and buses, for a more authentic journey through Bolivia. You will be accompanied by local guides who will provide insight into the history and culture of the country, and who will help the trip to run smoothly from beginning to end. The tour finishes at the shores of Lake Titicaca in Puno, Peru, making it ideally suited for further travel into Peru and other neighbouring countries. However, if you prefer to end the tour in La Paz this can be arranged on request.
If you join one of our set departures you will travel with a small group of like-minded travellers. In order to improve our customers’ experience, and to minimise impact on local communities, we keep group sizes small, aiming for a maximum number of 8 people on each departure. This itinerary is also available on a private, tailor made basis at any time of year. We take care in looking closely at every single detail of your holiday and we can provide a fully personalised service and look at your requirements in more detail to tailor the holiday to exactly how you want it.
