Because Bolivia is such a small country, many people choose to visit as an extension from either Peru or Chile. This is the perfect way to visit Bolivia and experience its customs, geography culture and uniqueness, especially if you are travelling from Northern Chile or the Atacama Desert. Experience the salt flats of Uyuni, the vibrant city of La Paz and of course the highest navigable lake in the world, Titicaca. This is a great way to take in an extra country on your way from Chile to Peru and ticking off another bucket list item along the way!

    After breakfast, we will drive through the Siloli desert. We pass through some small villages, such as Culpina and San Cristobal on the way to Uyuni. Here we take the road to Colchani situated on the borders of the salt flats where the local villagers process the salt to this day.  

      We will wake up really early to appreciate the spectacular sunrise in the middle of the salt flats to see the “eyes” of the salt flats, salt mountains and salt blocks. After the salt flats, we will head to the Uyuni Airport to take the flight to La Paz. Once we arrive, we will take the cable car, to the centre of the city, offering spectacular views over the city of La Paz, an incredible welcome to the eclectic, vibrant, unofficial capital of Bolivia.  

        Exploring the city of La Paz is like wandering into “Narnia” or any magical kingdom. La Paz sits in a valley and looks different from every angle you approach it from. As you tour the city, you will get a feel for the social, cultural and economic vibe, best experienced as you glide through the sky on the city’s cable car like an urban Tarzan!  The city of La Paz, at over 3,600 metres elevation features some incredible highlights: The San Francisco Church, the Witches’ Market and many museums are found in...

              We do not include travel or health insurance and we strongly recommend a comprehensive travel insurance for any unexpected circumstances. This is not obligatory, however. An full travel insurance policy that covers cancellations and delays as well as medical insurance.

              We suggest that you speak with your doctor to ensure that you are up-to-date with the recommended vaccinations when traveling to the destination. In any case, a negative Coronavirus Molecular Test (PCR) is needed to enter the country.

              We suggest that you speak with your doctor to ensure what medications you will need to bring to the destination. Pharmacies and drugstores are common in all cities, however, it is not certain that you will be able to find a specific drug that you can find in your country of origin.

              As in any city in the world, there can be pickpockets in crowded places. We suggest being vigilant at all times, but if you are in a group you will always be safer.

              We do not include the cost of any domestic or international flight in any of our programs. These services must be booked independently by each guest.

Personal space can be much shorter as well, but without being interpreted as sexual in nature.
