The vastness of Lake Titicaca. The magnificence of the Uyuni salt flat. What will mesmerise you the most on your holiday to Bolivia?

You begin in the city of La Paz, a cultural melting pot enveloped by the snow-capped peaks of the Andean Mountains. After taking in the Gold Museum and Witch Doctor’s Market you’ll journey to Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake where you’ll board a hydrofoil cruise to the mythical Sun Island – believed to be the birthplace of the Inca Empire.

Next comes the largest salt flat on planet earth, where you’ll find yourself staying in an extraordinary hotel made (almost) entirely from salt. Situated on the Bolivian Plateau, Salar de Uyuni is a stunning vision of sweeping crystalline salt, horizon-wide blue skies and cacti that measure up to 12 metres in height. A truly sensational sight to behold.
