If you want to experience a rich cultural heritage as well as spectacular, breathtaking scenery, Bolivia is a great travel destination for you.
We currently offer four different tours to Bolivia, one of which is a combination tour with Chile, and two of the tours will also take you to Peru.

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.
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.
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.
