Day 1: La Paz

At around 3,600 metres, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world in La Paz! After a 6 pm welcome meeting, enjoy an orientation walk with your leader and get to know the winding streets.

Day 2: La Paz

Today you’re free to explore the nooks and side-streets of La Paz or, alternatively, venture out of the city in search of crisp mountain air. Perhaps hop on a local bus out to the extraordinary landscape of Moon Valley.

Day 3: Uyuni Town

Say goodbye for now to chaotic La Paz and begin your 8 am journey into the Bolivian wilderness. At around 9 hours, the drive will take most of the day and fittingly, Uyuni feels a bit like the edge of the world.

Day 4: Salar de Uyuni

Uyuni is the starting point of your three-day 4WD excursion into Salar de Uyuni and the Andean desert. This morning we will stop by the Train Cemetery three kilometres outside of Uyuni Town, connected to it by the old train tracks, and see where families of geriatric locomotives rust slowly in the sun. The remainder of the day is spent mostly on the salt lake itself.

Day 5: Salar de Uyuni

Visit Laguna Colorado and Laguna Verde, lakes where algae and minerals have turned the waters a vivid red and green, respectively. One of the strangest sights in such arid and inhospitable land is the abundant wildlife, It’s truly a photographers paradise. Look out for llamas, flamingos, vicunas, and foxes.

Day 6: Uyuni Town

Despite a sunrise wake-up call, you might still feel like your dreaming when you arrive at Sol de Manana geysers. Mud bubbles and geysers spurt like kettles giving off steam across this geothermal field.

Day 7: Potosi

Catch a local bus for about 4 hours along the scenic route to Potosi, where you’ll arrive in the early afternoon. Potosi has had a turbulent past, centred mostly around its mining successes and failures. Once the predominant supplier of silver to colonial-era Spain, Potosi briefly celebrated life as one of the richest cities in the world.

Day 8: Sucre

Arrive in Sucre with the locals after 4 hour bus ride, disembarking in the temperate valley city. Bolivia’s official capital, Sucre was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991 and has retained the flavour of its colonial heritage in its churches, museums and ancient mansions.

Day 9: Sucre

Take a few days to explore Bolivia’s capital. After an orientation walk, compare shoe sizes with a dinosaur at Cal Orcko, where 68 million-year-old footprints have been discovered.

Day 10: Sucre

Today set out for an included hike along the ancient Pre-Incan path known as the Chataquila trek. The trek is relatively easy being that it is mostly downhill. On the way down enjoy the stunning views of the Andes and the valleys.

Day 11: La Paz

A 40-minute flight delivers you back to La Paz, where you can do as you please. Maybe head to the Mirador Killi Killi Lookout, located on top of a steep hill in the neighbourhood of Villa Pabon, and one of La Paz’s most impressive viewing points.

Day 12: La Paz

Your exploration of Bolivia’s highlights comes to an end this morning. As there are no more activities planned, you’re free to book your departure flights when you like and you can leave the accommodation at any time.
