A thrill-seekers paradise, a culture addict's delight and a nature lover's heaven, this secluded and often-underrated country in central South America is one that really packs a punch. Bolivia is home to the world's most dangerous road, largest salt flats and the highest lake, it's a country that impresses on a grand scale, but it's the colours, the vibrancy and the rugged beauty of this diverse and fascinating country that really leave a lasting impression on its visitors.
No trip to Bolivia would be complete without a visit to the utterly mesmerising Uyuni salt flats, but that's just the first of many must-dos. Wander the streets of the quaint city of Sucre, explore the vibrant markets of La Paz and go trekking through the beautiful Cordillera Real. Soak in the uninterrupted blue of Lake Titicaca from a tranquil lake-side cafe in Copacabana, before hopping on a boat to visit the 'birthplace of the sun' at Sun Island. Explore the silver mines of Potosi, go wine tasting in Tarija and discover the pink river dolphins and paradise birds of the Bolivian Amazon. Wherever you go, we assure you, this is a country that will keep you utterly enthralled from the very moment you arrive.

A bustling, lakeside town complete with a historical Basilica and a myriad of shops and cafes, Copacabana is a great place from which to explore Lake Titicaca and the surrounding islands.
The beating heart of Bolivia, this is where the fusion of modern life and indigenous culture is at its most exciting. With everything from museums to nightlife to choose from, there’s something for every style of traveller.
A serene and tranquil foil to Bolivia’s bustling cities, head to Lake Titicaca for an insight into traditional, indigenous ways of life. Take a boat trip to one of the many islands, feast on fresh, locally caught fish and find out why this stunning natural wonder is considered sacred in Andean belief.
Wake up to the Andes turning pink across the water, take a hike through the island or wander around ancient Incan ruins. With no cars and no paved roads, Isla de Sol is a haven of rest and relaxation. Even the boat journey here is an experience not to be forgotten.
With a charming, colonial centre, Potosi was once one of the world’s richest cities. Meander through the colourful streets to soak up the atmosphere, or take a tour of the (still working) silver mines for an eye opening look into a darker side of Bolivian history.
Perhaps Bolivia’s least frenetic city, Sucre is perfect for lazy afternoons spent perusing colonial architecture or enjoying the gardens and squares. With a variety of local markets and surrounded by beautiful countryside, it deserves a day or two of your trip.
Iconic and ethereal, Salar de Uyuni is a bucket list item for many a traveller. Don’t miss out on the colourful lakes, resident flamingos and otherworldly landscapes. Make sure to bring a prop or two for taking some ‘perspective’ shots on the flat white surface!
