Sucre & Potosi
Begin your holiday to Bolivia in the charming capital city of Sucre, full of colonial whitewashed buildings and cobbled streets. If you find yourself here on a Sunday, then the Tarabuco market is a must. This is a bustling indigenous market where 35 local communities come together to trade, no money changes hands, everything is bartered for. It is a wonderful place to observe the traditional costumes of the local people.
Around three hours’ drive from Sucre is Potosi, the highest city in the world, sitting at almost 4,000 m with a history steeped in silver mining.
Salt Flats & The Southern Deserts
Travel overland to the south of the country, an area of vast salt flats, lakes, desert and volcanic landscapes. One of the most striking areas is the Salar de Uyuni, the huge white desert on the Bolivian Andean Altiplano. As well as the salt plains stretching as far as the eye can see, there are rocky outcrops, lagoons filled with flamingos, herds of llama, and small communities.
A stay in La Paz will literally take your breath away, the city sits on the edge of a steep canyon high up in the Andes dominated by the snow-covered peaks of Mount Illimani. A fascinating city with witches’ markets, colonial buildings and some amazing trekking.
Lake Titicaca & Tiwanaku
Travel to Copacabana and take a private motor boat onto the world’s highest navigable lake, Lake Titicaca, a huge expanse of water surrounded by mountains. Stop off at beautiful Sun Island and experience the peaceful rural way of life. Visit the ancient burial site of Pariti and the ceremonial site of Tiwanaku, one of Latin Americas most famous sites, dating back some 500 years before the rise of the Incas.
