Meaningful Travel in Bolivia
When travelling through Bolivia we feel it is important to gain as much as you can from your surroundings whilst having a positive impact on the communities you are travelling in. We think this can be achieved through the choice of small-scale accommodation, local community tours to learn about the culture in Bolivia and our travel specialists passion about the destination.
Throughout our bite-sized trips we prioritise experiences that bring your closer to your destination and benefit the local people and environment in some way. For example during our Swimming with the Caimans trip you’ll stay in an eco-lodge built using only jungle resources and traditional techniques. The lodge is run exclusively by the local people with all proceeds going directly to the community.
For our Bolivia trips we go out of our way to find small-scale, authentic accommodation that really reflects the culture and atmosphere of the areas you will be travelling in. This could be a traditional posada, a jungle lodge or a family owned guest house. Each accommodation has been handpicked and selected based on a combination of its location, atmosphere and character.
Our Local Bolivia Project
In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Bolivia, we are proud supporters of Amigos de Potosí, a Dutch based charity with a local coordinator and volunteers who try to provide the children of the many miners working in “Cerro Rico” (Rich Mountain) with a better way of living and working outside the mines.
