This tour is perfect for those who want to explore Bolvia’s most iconic sights. Start in La Paz, situated at a lofty 3600 metres above sea level. This is a city that’s buildings cling to the sides of the steep canyon and tumble spectacularly downwards. On clear days you will be able to spot the imposing Mt Illimani which stands guard over the city. The tour also takes in Bolivia’s second, and some say most beautiful city, Sucre. The whitewashed buildings, colonial architecture, museums and churches have been protected by UNESCO since 1991.
From here visit Potasi to take in its ornate architecture, grand churches and friendly inhabitants. There is also time to learn about the miners who work here and how the silver ore is extracted to the Earths surface. A short land transfer away lies Salar de Uyuni, a real highlight on this trip. This is the world’s largest salt flat, situated at a dizzying 3653m and spanning an enormous 12,000sq km, and is truly one of the world’s most awe-inspiring spectacles. While in this region you will stay in the Luna Salada hotel, which is constructed entirely of salt. On the flats themselves, you explore the landscape with a vintage-style Airstream camper, a unique way to experience the Salar de Uyuni. These shiny new 'campers' cater for up to two guests, are fully equipped and include a personal chauffeur/guide.
Finally, spend time at Lake Titicaca, another record as the highest navigatable lake in the world. Visit the Andean Roots Eco Village and learn about the 'Mystic World of the Kallawaynas' who are natural healers of Bolivia. There is also time for a hydrofoil visit Moon Island, the Sun Virgins Temple 'Inak Uyu' and to Isla del Sol which is one of the lakes largest islands, and has over 180 ruins.
