Bolivia Holidays


Sharing a border with five other countries, landlocked Bolivia is one of South Americas hidden gems. Visitors to this fascinating country are rewarded with stark beauty, some of the best preserved colonial cities in the Americas and the most untouched parts of the continent.

Bolivia has a huge variety of contrasting, diverse and spectacular landscapes, ranging from the snow capped peaks surrounding La Paz, the stunning Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni salt flats) well known for being one of the most evocative sights in South America, to the remote wilderness of the Amazon rainforest. The shimmering deep blue Lake Titicaca is perhaps the most well known attraction in the country and set high in the Andes, straddles the border of Peru and Bolivia, making these two fascinating countries easy to combine.

  • WHERE TO GO IN BOLIVIA

    Lake Titicaca, Peru & Bolivia
    Lake Titicaca, Peru & Bolivia
    A shimmering deep blue lake, surrounded by mountains and dotted with tiny islands, Lake Titicaca is breathtaking. Set high in the Andes, straddling the borders of Peru and Bolivia, this is the largest lake in South America. Visitors can learn about local indigenous cultures on Peru’s Taquile and Uros Islands and discover interesting ruins on Bolivia’s Isla del Sol.
    La Paz
    La Paz
    Bolivia’s largest city boasts an impressive location, sprawling across the huge valley floor and with the snow-capped triple peaks of Mount Illimani visible in the distance. Set at a dizzying altitude of 3,600m, the city offers steep streets, trendy cafés, quirky museums and the fascinating Witches’ Market. La Paz is a striking destination that will take your breath away!
    Uyuni Salt Flats
    Uyuni Salt Flats
    One of South America’s most evocative sights, the Salar de Uyuni is a stunning and vast salt flat. In the dry season its landscape offers vistas of pure white as far as the eye can see. This stark landscape contrasts brilliantly with the bright blue skies of the Altiplano. When there is surface water, mirror-like pools reflect the sky above and the horizon disappears, creating a surreal effect.
    The Bolivian Amazon
    The Bolivian Amazon
    Accessible by a short flight over the Andes from La Paz, the beginning of each journey into the Bolivian Amazon begins in the small town of Rurrenabaque, before a boat trip far into the jungle to your lodge. The extraordinary Madidi National Park is utterly remote, rarely visited and a region for the experienced adventurer. The Bolivian Amazon allows visitors to explore the magnificent ecosystems of the rainforest at fantastic value for money. The intrepid traveller will be rewarded.
    Sucre
    Sucre
    Known as Bolivia's 'White City' due to the many whitewashed buildings in its colonial centre, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the symbolic heart of the nation. Wander past the lovely plazas and baroque churches and enjoy the quiet serenity of this lovely city.
    Potosi
    Potosi
    Perched at over 4,000m above sea level and in the shadow of Cerro Rico (Rich Hill), Potosi is one of the highest cities in the world. Made famous for silver mining, Potosi was once the wealthiest city in South America. The city is still bursting with colonial architecture and grand churches and located only a few hours from Sucre is well worth a visit.

    Top Tips From Our Experts

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Kerry Ann Govier

    If you're short on time, the stunning and surreal Salar de Uyuni can be visited on a two day trip from La Paz. Short but sweet this is a great way to fit in this unmissable destination.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Suzy McGhee

    Definitely make sure you make time to take a trip to Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca. The boat ride to get there is absolutely stunning and once you're there you feel like you've been transported back in time.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Katie Tidey

    If you have extra time include the drive from the Uyumi Salt Flats to the Atacama Desert. The scenery is incredible, geysers, beautiful coloured lagoons and the Atacama is a great addition to a trip to Bolivia
