Despite sharing a rich Inca and Spanish colonial heritage, and stunning mountain scenery, with its neighbour Peru, Bolivia remains largely unexplored by visitors. This journey unlocks the secrets of this isolated country high in the Andes.
You begin in the picturesque grandeur of the Peruvian Andes and the legendary Inca strongholds of Cusco, Machu Picchu and Ollantayambo, before travelling overland via Lake Titicaca to La Paz, the world’s highest capital city and an enchanting mix of colonial architecture and lively Indian street markets.
You then travel south to explore the stunning salt pans of the Salar de Uyuni, Potosi whose prosperity was founded on the vast Spanish silver mines of Cerro Rico, and the beautiful city of Sucre with its whitewashed buildings and fine museums, before ending your journey back in La Paz.
