Why should you holiday in Bolivia?

Bolivia is a magnificent, land-locked country, situated in the heart of the Andes. It might be one of the poorest countries in South America, but the country offers incredible treasures by way of its history, culture, traditions and, not least, amazing scenery.

Over half of the Bolivian population is indigenous, and the country offers traditions which are very much alive and kicking, combined with a modern lifestyle in the very best way.

If you want to experience a rich cultural heritage as well as spectacular, breathtaking scenery, Bolivia is a great travel destination for you.

Sucre – the white city

Bolivia’s official capital is the beautiful city of Sucre, which has been nicknamed “The White City” due to its many whitewashed buildings.

Sucre is located in a valley, surrounded by mountains, and is one of South America’s most beautiful cities by virtue of its scenic location and buildings from the Spanish colonial era.

Visit some of the main squares, such as Plaza 25 de Mayo, where there are many museums and historical monuments, including Casa de la Libertad, where the independence of the country was announced in 1825 by Simón Bolivar, whom the country is named after.

The mining town of Potosí

Located at 4,090 metres above sea level, Potosí is one of the highest towns in the world. The town is an ancient mining village built around the mountain Cerro de Potosí, also known as the “Rich Mountain”, due to the silver it contains. In its heyday, Potosí was one of the largest and richest cities in America.

Potosí offers Baroque architecture and colonial buildings, and is one of the colonial towns in South America that has best retained its original character. Visit the historic squares, Plaza 6 de Agosto and Plaza 10 de Noviembre, or go to one of the local markets.

The salt plain, Salar de Uyuni

Close to the border with Chile, you will find the vast salt plain Salar de Uyuni, located at an altitude of 3,663 metres. Covering an area of 10,500 km2, Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat and is said to contain 10 billion tonnes of salt.

During periods of drought, the surface is dry, and you will be overwhelmed by the endless, white surface contrasting with the blue sky as far as the eye can see. When there is water, the sky is reflected in the surface, and the horizon disappears into infinity. Both are amazing, awe-inspiring sights.

Also visit the nearby attractions: Geysers at Sol de Mañana, where you can bathe in the hot springs, the Red Lagoon, Laguna Colarada, which is inhabited by flamingos and the Green Lagoon, Laguna Verde, the beautiful colour of which is due to deposits and copper minerals.

Other experiences in Bolivia

  • La Paz, Bolivia’s administrative capital, is located at an altitude of almost 4,000 metres, making it the world’s highest administrative capital. Discover the charming cobbled streets, beautiful architecture and campesinas (country women), who sell rugs, nuts and much more besides in their colourful attire.
  • Bolivia’s biggest city Santa Cruz offers great entertainment, good restaurants and interesting museums. The city is also known for its many buildings from the Spanish colonial era.
  • Just outside La Paz, you will find Tiwanaku, a pre-Columbian archaeological site, which gives you an insight into one of the most important civilisations prior to the Inca Empire. You will visit ruins such as the “Gate of the Sun” and the “Gate of the Moon”.

Combine Bolivia and Peru

Two of our tours combine Bolivia with a tour to Peru. Peru is especially famous for its legacies of the Inca Empire, the Spanish colonial era and some unique natural wonders.

On the combination tours, you can, for example, experience:

  • The capital, Lima, where you can see beautiful colonial buildings in the historic city centre, relax in the modern neighbourhood of Miraflores, or discover the multicultural Peruvian community through its cuisine, etc. Why not try one of the country’s traditional dishes – fried guinea pig – for example?!
  • Visit the scenically located ruin complex Machu Picchu, which is Peru’s biggest attraction by far and one of the seven new wonders of the world. The ruin complex, which was built in the 15th century, remained undiscovered during the Spanish colonial era. The ruins have immense cultural significance today and Macchu Pichu is regarded as sacred.
  • Lake Titicaca, which is located on the border between Bolivia and Peru, is the world’s highest navigable lake, at an altitude of 3,856 metres. The shores of the lake are inhabited by small indigenous communities who live by hunting and fishing. Stay with a local family and gain a unique insight into the local way of life.

Combine Bolivia and Chile

One of our tours combines Bolivia with a tour to Chile.

In Chile, you will among other things, experience:

  • Santiago de Chile, the capital of Chile. The city enjoys a scenic location, surrounded by the snow-capped Andes. Discover the cultural heart of the city, the Bellavista district, Sanhattan, the modern neighbourhood named after Manhattan in New York, and the city’s historic attractions, which include the country’s largest cathedral.
  • The El Tatio Geysers in San Pedro de Atacama. The 80 or so active geysers are located at an altitude of 4,300 metres and are most active at sunrise. Experience columns of steam in contrasting colours, truly one of the world’s most amazing natural phenomena. Swim in El Tatio’s mineral-rich hot springs.
  • Valparaíso, Chile’s main port, situated north of the capital. The historic centre offers charming colonial buildings and lovely markets. The town is also known for its artistic, bohemian atmosphere.

The weather in Bolivia month by month

Bolivia is located in the heart of South America, without any direct connection to the sea. The climate in the county varies greatly, largely on account of the Andes Mountains and the significant variations in altitude. To the west/south-west lies Altiplano – a highland area between 3,500 and 4,000 metres above sea level, bordered by two mountain ranges. This region is home to splendid destinations including Lake Titicaca, La Paz and Salar de Uyuni. The highlands are cool during the day and can be extremely cold at night. To the north and east lie the lowlands, distinguished by rainforest, swampland and the flat savannah. The climate here is warm and very humid. The year can generally be divided into a dry period (winter) and a rainy period (summer). The rainy season lasts from November until March, and the rains are particularly heavy in January and February. The dry period runs from April until October.
