Bolivia holidays

A stunning country bursting with surprises

Bolivia is an extraordinary destination where contrasting extremes range from the luminous white salt flats of Salar de Uyuni and the arid Atacama Desert to the vast, impenetrable Amazon rainforest and towering peaks of the Andes.

Discover indigenous cultures, marvel at colonial architecture, uncover archaeological treasures and witness the mystical serenity of Lake Titicaca – the legendary birthplace of the Incas – whose shores are shared with neighbouring Peru.

Embark on an escorted tour and discover the heart of this unique country on an unforgettable adventure.

  • The Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca has the rugged Sun and Moon islands which are rich in mythology and home to more than 150 Inca settlements
  • A once in a lifetime experience is to stay in an airstream camper on the salt flats at Salar de Uyuni with private guide, driver and chef
  • La Paz's Witches Market is an unmissable spectacle that is ghoulish and fascinating in equal measure - sorcerers and witches cast spells and sell charms
  • Include Sucre in your itinerary - it's an attractive city with a thriving colonial arts scene, excellent museums and the world's largest collection of dinosaur tracks
  • Our Personal Travel Experts can pull together an individual itineray for you that delves into the heart of Bolivian culture and history
