Bolivia

With its snowcapped peaks and undulating altiplano, vast lakes, jungle lowlands and otherworldly salt flats, Bolivia is a country of raw, rugged beauty.

It's Latin America's most isolated nation, and the highest in elevation, with the region's largest indigenous population. It's Bolivia's mix of dramatic wilderness, ancient treasures, buzzing high-altitude cities and vibrant culture that make it such a rare and rewarding destination.

Experience Bolivia's raw beauty up close as you journey across the dramatic altiplano and explore the surreal landscapes of Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat. Visit the ancient ruins of Tiwanaku, capital of a powerful pre-Hispanic civilisation that dominated the southern Andes and beyond, or test your limits with our challenging Summits of Bolivia expedition, where we scale the towering peaks of the spectacular Cordillera Real.

Head to Lake Titicaca to visit the sacred Isla del Sol, unwind in the charming lakeside town of Copacabana, and shop for vibrant indigenous textiles and handicrafts at colourful local markets. Admire the elegant colonial architecture and romantic charm of Sucre, Bolivia's most beautiful city, and head to La Paz, the world's highest capital, for markets, food and buzzing nightlife in a stunning setting framed by snowcapped mountains.

No matter which pace of Bolivian adventure you choose, World Expeditions can get you deep into the heart of this exciting destination.

Support of local businsses

On Sun Island (Isla del Sol) we employ the local boat services to transport travelers as well as food. The local boats are managed by the community and we provide service and safety training.

Child safe tourism

Child labor is a problem in Bolivia as the government allows children from 14 years of age to legally work. Our local partner in Bolivia does not employ children and discourages this practice

Community engagement

We provide many different cultural activities on our itineraries including dances, apthapi (communal food sharing), textiles, Andean rituals to pachamama (Mother Earth) and visits to local homes to learn the way they live and share experiences.


Hotels

In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star properties that are centrally located, atmospheric and reliable.
