Days 1-4 – Wandering through the lanes of La Paz

When you arrive into La Paz our representative will be waiting for you. They’ll drop you off at your colonial hotel in the centre of La Paz, within walking distance from the Witch’s Market and the San Francisco Cathedral. Since it’s impossible to know how your body will react to the altitude, there are no activities planned. If you feel okay, you can walk through the city and enjoy your stay at your own pace.

Days 4-7 – A pinch of salt

After you arrive in Uyuni, you’ll have the rest of the day to explore this dusty little town – it isn’t much to look at, but there are a few restaurants and bars to keep you occupied. The following day you’ll travel with a small group by jeep, with an English-speaking guide, across the world’s largest salt lake. The surreal views of endless white salt against an electric blue sky make for some great pictures. In the afternoon you’ll be driven back to Uyuni where you’ll spend another night in the same hotel.

Days 7-11 – Swimming with the caimans

The town of Rurrenabaque is set in a quintessential jungle setting: muddy dirt tracks, dense rainforest and a subtropical climate. This is a completely different side to Bolivia than what you’ll have seen in the highlands, not just the people but also the food. You’ll be picked up at the tiny airport and taken to your hotel in the town centre.

The next day you’ll sail upstream to your remote eco-lodge deep in the Amazonian rainforest. On the way you might spot caimans and capybara along the river and hear monkeys screeching in the trees above you. You’ll spend two nights here and go on canoe trips and guided walks through the jungle. There is no need for an alarm clock here; the call of the howler monkeys is enough to wake anyone up in the morning.
