Visit the very best of the highlands of Bolivia, Chile and Argentina with our adventure tour.
Enjoy a fascinating mix of culture and scenery as we adventure through Argentina’s altiplano, Bolivia’s Uyuni salt flats and Chile’s Atacama desert.
This is the perfect small group holiday for those seeking a degree of comfort with excitement.
We start in Salta in northern Argentina. We explore this stunning part of the country, passing colourful cultures and rock formations including Purmamarca, a rainbow mountain of seven colours.
Towns such as Humahuaca – with frequent street music – Tilcara, Uquía and Purmamarca thrive among the amazing multi-coloured mountains, salt plans and lakes.
Next, it’s Bolivia – Uyuni and its famous alt lakes and volcanoes. From Uyuni, we head out into the vast southern desert to enjoy the starkly beautiful landscapes of this dramatic desert wilderness.
Lakes that change colour, geysers and bizarre rock formations are just some of the highlights of this enormous salt plain.
From here, it’s to Chile and San Pedro de Atacama desert.
One day you are floating around in the salty Laguna Cejar, the next, gazing at the awesome scenery from atop an Andean peak.
Prices From $1200 / £960 per person
Dates: October 2019

Nick - Kathy at Andean Trails did a brilliant job of helping us to plan our itinerary in Argentina, Bolivia and Peru. During 5 weeks of travelling every single thing which we had booked through her worked perfectly.
Ali - The extended Condoriri Trek was absolutely wonderful - untrodden trails, stunning mountains and glacial lakes, and super friendly guide and arrieros.
Katie - The one day version of the Inca Trail allowed us spend more time exploring away from the crowds, and still visit the Macchu Picchu site with (almost) no one else there.
Clara - My highlight? Cocktails on a roof terrace in Sucre after several days of dusty overland travel in Bolivia. Oh yes!
Freddy - We met so many fantastic people in Bolivia, so friendly and keen to show us their beautiful country.
