As the world's highest capital city, La Paz is possibly one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Dwarfed by its mountain back-drop, which looms over the sprawling built-up hillsides, and the peculiar Moon Valley, many elements contribute to the city's uniqueness. For spectacular views take the teleferico (cable car) high above the city, but don’t forget to take a closer look at a few of the unmissable spots. A sacred Incan site, the Tupac Katari Mirador has some of the best views of the entire city. For the ultimate Bolivian experience visit the Mercado 16 de Julio. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the beautiful city of Sucre is well worth a visit. From its stunning colonial architecture to the exceptional food and indigenous museums, you will be happy you added this to your itinerary. Not far from Sucre you will find Potosi, once one of the wealthiest cities in South America under Spanish colonial rule due to the discovery of silver. Today you can learn about the conditions workers have to deal with on a visit to one of the cooperative mines.
The exceptional and unique Salar de Uyuni is a must-see on any Bolivian itinerary. The expansive views and mountain backdrop is simply stunning and the sky at night is mesmerising. Have fun in the day using perspective to take entertaining photos sitting on wine bottles or standing in someone’s hand! The Train Graveyard in Uyuni is also well worth a visit.
Lake Titicaca sits on the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes and is home to a number of natural and artificial islands – the most famous of which is the Uros floating Islands. Uros is a community of pre-Incan people who live on forty two self-fashioned floating islands made from reeds. On the shores of Lake Titicaca sits the bustling town of Copacabana, with a beautiful waterfront view. Walk along the lakefront and find quiet spots where you can appreciate the overall peacefulness that this town has to offer.
Amazonian Bolivia is an enthralling region. The rainforest is raucous with wildlife, and roaming the sweaty jungle is an experience you’ll never forget. As well as the enchanting rainforest, you will also be struck by the richness of the indigenous cultures, traditions and languages that exist in this part of Bolivia.
Bolivia is an outstanding country of variety and we are excited to discuss your escape to this magnificent destination with you.
