A luxury holiday to Bolivia offers, in our opinion, perhaps some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in all of South America and certainly some of its remotest. Bolivia has a unique and unsophisticated charm in wonderful contrast to its cosmopolitan neighbours to the south in Chile and Argentina.
Here in South America’s least visited nation you will find some of the Andes’ most awe-inspiring landscapes, traditional cultures and vividly colourful local dress, quirky and charming remote lodges and softly-spoken and disarmingly friendly people.
Bolivia meets its northern neighbour Peru at high altitude on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Here on the less-visited Bolivian side of the lake, on your Bolivia luxury holiday you will come across tranquil islands where small remote communities carry on their lives as they have done for centuries, consulting the local shaman, fishing by reed boat and farming the small island terraces.
After enjoying unique stargazing over some of the clearest skies in the world, follow the road south past the capital La Paz and the pretty old colonial city of Sucre. Further south at Uyuni, the tarmac runs out and gives way to a vast sea of white salt crust fringed by lofty volcanic peaks and dotted with small islands on which grow giant cacti.
The incredible Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world and is quite literally one of the most breath-taking and unique places on Earth. It's an absolute must as part of any luxury holiday to Belize. Huge multi-coloured mineral lakes are home to colonies of rare James flamingos and the desert plains harbour vicuña, vizcachas and alpaca. Finally, cross red desert tracks to arrive either in northern Argentina or Chile, where chic desert oases await to pamper you after a spectacular 4x4 journey.
We have travelled throughout Bolivia on numerous occasions and we can offer you the very best advice on how to tailor-make a trip to this fascinating and laid-back country. We know the best charming rustic local lodges, how to cross the Salar in unique style and what times of year to get clear blue skies for an incredible contrast to the white salt flats and perfect photography for the ideal luxury holiday to Bolivia.
If you have an adventurous spirit and really want to get under the skin of South America, we’ll help you build a fascinating and rewarding expertly-guided luxury holiday in Bolivia.
