It seems to be set at the top of the world, but little-visited Bolivia is a treat for lovers of nature and adventure. See it before everyone finds out. Read more...
Set in the centre of South America, Bolivia is awash with diverse terrain – from desert plains and salt flats, to volcanos and verdant rainforests – that begs to be explored. Rugged and vibrant, it is a country filled with delights of the natural variety, but where to start?
Whether you love adventure or nature (or both!), this is a trip that is sure to kick your pulse up a notch or two. Hold onto your hat as you rumble around the edges of cliffs on Death Road. Wander the Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia’s famous endless salt flats. Discover dramatic vistas of snow-capped peaks at Lake Titicaca, not only South America’s largest lake but also the highest navigable lake in the world. Then journey to cities that reside far closer to the heavens than to sea level.
Immerse yourself in a nation that continues to celebrate its history and culture. Explore ancient cathedrals, museums and archaeological sites. Dance in the streets at one of the country’s many carnivals. Learn about spells and potions used by witch doctors at the Witches Markets in Cerro Cumbre, near La Paz. Make the epic pilgrimage to the almighty Cristo de la Concordia, the largest sculpture of Jesus Christ in the world.
Bolivia is calling. What are you waiting for?
