Bolivia holidays take you to a land of contrasts, from stunning Andean scenery to vast salt flats or verdant Amazon.
Tours to Bolivia mean journeys to remote towns and villages, each with distinct and vibrant indigenous cultures.
One day you can be enjoying the steamy, oxygen-rich jungle, the next breathing in clear mountain air.
Because Bolivia remains a little off most traveller’s radars you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome, wherever you visit.
The highlight for many is without a doubt a 4×4 adventure tour through the Salar de Uyuni and unbelievable desert scenery of southern Bolivia.
Trekkers will love the stark landscapes of Bolivia’s Altiplano and the Cordillera Real on remote mountain treks.
Travel to the Amazon to discover Bolivia’s verdant green rainforest. Here, the oxygen-rich canopy is teeming with wildlife and native guides will reveal the forest’s secrets to you.
Pocking these high lands are wonderful lakes, including Lake Titicaca and its famous Islands of the Moon and Sun, and the barren yet beautiful altiplano.
In the cities you can haggle at La Paz’s bustling markets, wander the beautiful white colonial city of Sucre and see the famous mines at Potosi.

Below you will find a few of the many attractions Bolivia has to offer for your holiday.
The gateway to the Bolivian Amazon lies at the lively town of Rurrenabaque.
Motorised canoes will take you into the rich and verdant realms of the Madidi National Park, a hub of ecotourism in the Bolivian Amazon basin.
On a network of paths and waterways you can immerse yourself in the hot and humid tropical paradise that is the rainforest.
Wildlife such as howler monkeys and pink river dolphins, as well as a colourful indigenous culture, are a magnet for those who like to experience not only the Andean climates of Bolivia but to venture further into the depths of this fascinating country.
The Cordillera Real of Bolivia is a range of awe-inspiring snowy peaks just south of La Paz.
The towering peaks of this mountain range, dominated by Illimani (6,400m/20,997ft), Illampu (6,368m/20,892ft) and Ancohuma (6,427m/21,086ft), form a magnificent barrier which separates the Altiplano from Bolivia’s extensive rainforest.
The range is criss-crossed by ancient pilgrimage and trading routes and gives avid trekkers plenty of options to escape civilisation into the incredibly dramatic high Bolivian altitudes.
In the Condoriri Range you still won’t meet many fellow hikers but will find yourself in the company of majestic peaks, high altitude passes with stunning views, grazing herds of llamas and alpacas and soaring condors.

We had a great trip! It was so nice that everything was arranged and taken care off, so we could just enjoy it and spent time with the three of us. The whole trip was full of highlights and I could not name one thing I did not like.

The Lares Trek! This was the most physically challenging thing I've ever done but also one of the most rewarding! The scenery was incredible, the guide was excellent, the food was comparable to a nice restaurant at every meal and the other trekkers will be long-time friends! I liked the small group size, the knowledge and professionalism of the guide and the very hard-working horsemen and cooks.

If you are wondering what to eat in Buenos Aires you might wish to consider a tasting menu. Alan was recently in Buenos Aires and this is the account of his personal experience of a a tasting menu evening. He writes: Tasting menu – a lot of small “funny” dishes designed to confuse and challenge your palate. Well, that’s what I have always thought and as such they have never appealed to me. On a recent visit to Buenos Aires I was invited to go to a seven course tasting menu, paired with wine, at Casa Coupage. …
