Bolivia

FROM THE PEAKS OF THE ANDES DOWN TO THE EDGE OF THE AMAZON IT IS AN ADVENTURER'S DREAM COME TRUE

Central + South America

Bolivia

Cultural festivals, ancient civilisations, colourful street markets, blinding-white salt plains

Intriguing, welcoming and still very unspoiled – its way of life in many areas little changed for centuries and its remnants of ancient civilisations asking as many questions as they answer – Bolivia is a wonderful destination for more adventurous travellers.

From its high plateau and the remotely beautiful Lake Titicaca, to its peaceful savannah wetlands, great swathes of steaming jungle, and the blinding-white salt lakes, crimson deserts and volcanoes of the south-west, this a truly bizarre and spectacular country.

Its capital, La Paz, crammed with colourful street markets, ringed by soaring peaks and set at an altitude of 3650 metres will literally take your breath away. We think that, for less adventurous travellers, Bolivia’s poor infrastructure and isolation mean that it often works best to combine a visit there with some time in either Peru or Chile

Best visited: April to December

All our itineraries are individually designed. We do not cover Bolivia as an individual destination, but a few days here work well as an addition to Northern Chile or Peru.

LA PAZ

bespoke luxury trips to South America

In comparison to other countries in Latin America, Bolivia is still very underdeveloped and undiscovered. It may not be the most luxurious destination on the continent, but what it lacks in modern style, it makes up for through real unique character and an unwavering traditional identity, which is the real draw of the country.

Bolivia: an experienced not to be missed

Leslie Martin and a group of her girlfriends planned a trip to the Chilean Atacama desert and Travesia into Bolivia; they were completely taken aback with the luxury accommodation, the huge array of activities in the desert and the spectacular Travesia into the Bolivian Altiplanos. With their private guide they explored volcanic mountain ranges, hiking through salt plains and took a trip to Easter Island.
