Experience Bolivia

Bolivia is a landlocked country considered the heart of South America thanks to its unique location. Sparsely populated and unspoilt by modern development, much of the land is untouched and preserving its natural beauty of rugged terrains, towering mountains, windswept plains and surreal salt flats.

For many a trip through Bolivia will feel like a trip back in time, about 60% of the population identifies as indigenous many of whom maintaining traditional values and beliefs and often wearing traditional dress. From the high mountain lakes of Titicaca to the steamy lowland jungles, Bolivia is an exciting destination with enormous cultural wealth, beautiful Andean landscapes and the remnants of mysterious ancient civilisations.

About Bolivia and Tour Highlights

Getting to Bolivia

There are many entry points to Bolivia from Australia. You’ll either fly to Buenos Aires in Argentina or into Santiago, Chile and get a connecting flight to Bolivia’s capital of La Paz.  Alternatively you can enter Bolivia from its five bordering  neighbours – Peru, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Paraguay.

Climate

Bolivia has a temperate climate differing dramatically between day and night. The wet season is between November to March.

La Paz

Bolivia’s capital and largest city surrounded by desert in contrast to the snow-capped mountain of Mt. Illimani. Just outside the city you will find the Moon Valley and Mallasilla, and the pre-Inca ruins of Tiahuanacu.

Lake Titicaca

Some 90 minutes from the capital La Paz is South America’s second largest and the world’s highest navigable lake. The Incas believed the children of the Sun God were born from the waters of this magnificent lake which sprang from the body of a drowned puma.

Uyuni Salt Flats

The world’s largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometres. Its unique landscapes of blindingly bright salt plains, colourful mineral lakes and stunning deserts is a photographer’s paradise.
