Tour Overview

Ready to experience Bolivia's jaw-dropping natural beauty? This spellbinding trip will take you from the heady heights of La Paz through to the mind-bending beauty of the Bolivian salt flats, with spooky train graveyards, colourful flamingos and plenty of fascinating cultural insights along the way. Make sure there's space on your camera roll.

Highlights

  • La Paz: Swoop into this small Bolivian town – the gateway to visit the salt flats at Salar de Uyuni.

  • Uyuni: This one’s pretty surreal! An array of abandoned steam engines that were left to rust are now a work of modern art.

  • Wild llamas and alpacas. Flamingos. Salt flats. Volcanos. The list of amazing things you’ll see here is endless.

Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1 : La Paz
Location: La Paz, La Paz
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Selina La Paz (or similar)
Meals Included: No Meals

The perfect start to your Bolivian adventure is meeting your group in the city of La Paz. Sitting in the midst of a narrow canyon and dwarfed by the mighty ice capped peak of Mount Illimani to the South, this is a city of contrasts, where 19th century churches rub shoulders with towering office blocks and pretty, colourful markets. Take your time adjusting to the altitude, then make the most of your afternoon in this hustling, cosmopolitan city.

Day 2 : La Paz To Avaroa National Reserve
Location: La Paz, Uyuni, Reserva Nacional de Fauna Andina Eduardo Avaroa.
Accommodation Name: Avaroa National Reserve
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we're headed to Uyuni, the official gateway to the Salar de Uyuni...more commonly known as the Bolivian Salt Flats.
Excited much? You should be. To get the journey started, we'll be heading to the Great Train Graveyard, which is every bit as incredible as it sounds. Next up what you've been waiting for, the Salt Flats. Hope you've got your picture ideas ready, the possibilities are endless.
We'll continue through the desert before parking up for the night. Expect some beautiful night skies out here.

Location: Reserva Nacional de Fauna Andina Eduardo Avaroa.
Accommodation Name: Avaroa National Reserve
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

It's time to jump back in the 4x4 and continue through the Bolivian desert. We'll be starting a crossing through the Avaroa National Reserve. Hot springs, geysers, volcanoes, mountains, lakes and flocks of flamingos will have your head spinning 360 as you try to take it all on. Nature on steroids is probably the best description.

Day 4 : Avaroa National Reserve To Night Bus
Location: Reserva Nacional de Fauna Andina Eduardo Avaroa., La Paz
Accommodation Name: Overnight bus
Meals Included: Breakfast

Today we start the journey back to Uyuni. So sit back and enjoy the views unlike anywhere else. You'll get a chance to have a look around the town and grab some dinner.

My amazing trip to Africa

13-Jan-2023

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
