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.

THUNUPA VOLCANO & AMBORO

Once you’ve explored the salt pan by fat bike, foot, and 4×4, hike (or drive) up to the summit of the Thunupa Volcano at 15000ft for a startling perspective over the salt flats and the surrounding landscape.  

Stay in a luxury dome that merges with the landscape, enjoying sundowners as the salt pan and the vermillion sunset merge into a singular vision. Following dinner, take in some of the most unpolluted night skies you’ve ever seen.

On to lesser-known Amboró National Park—a verdant wilderness roamed by pumas, spectacled bears, and sloths. Pass exotic flowers, immense ferns, and misted falls as you hike the trails, before a helicopter transfers you to the foothills of the Andes, over Santa Cruz city, and to the quaint, colorful town of Samaipata. With the name translated from Quechua as ‘Rest in the Highlands,’ it’s a welcoming and restful finale to your Bolivian adventure.
