LAKE TITICACA & LA PAZ
A cobalt blue expanse extending across the border to Peru, Lake Titicaca is one of Bolivia’s headline sights. This high-altitude lake, surrounded by white-capped Andean peaks, offers both a sense of natural and historic grandeur, for it was from here that the Incan civilization emerged.
Explore the lake’s archaeological sites, discover the enchanting Incan gods, and commune with the myths by slaking your thirst from a sacred fountain. Disturb the lake waters as you sail to Isla del Sol, explore the hiking trails, and take in the stunning high-altitude panoramas.
On to the wellspring of modern Bolivia—La Paz. The capital city, set over 11,00ft up in the cloud-laced Andes, it’s a riot of street art, insane traffic, and vibrant culture. Hop on the cable car public transport to see the urban tumult from above, stopping off in intriguing neighborhoods to try delicious zingy street food.
DEATH ROAD & SALAR DE UYUNI
Test your mettle with a cycle ride along the intimidatingly named, ‘Death Road’. This iconic road descends 11,000ft with its 40-mile length snaking through fog, along cliff edges, and under cascades. It’s a thrilling ride the entire way, with distracting views across the Bolivian wilderness.
One of the world’s natural wonders—and, since it appeared in James Bond, probably its highest-profile attraction—the Salar de Uyuni is a gigantic salt pan stretching to the arid, mountainous horizon. You’ll explore it in a specialized 4×4, mesmerized by its unique quirks. The season you’ve arrived in will determine its attributes, but whether wet or dry you’re in for a fascinating photographic encounter accompanied by exceptional and unique experiences supplied by Pelorus.
