Highlights

Explore the nature and culture of the Andes in Bolivia on this guided tour

Get to know La Paz, a vibrant city with exciting cuisine, culture, and local people.

Hike high into the Andes, trekking below some of the most impressive summits in the area.

Cruise over beautiful Lake Titicaca on a catamaran with the warm Bolivian sun on your face.

Gaze across the vast salt flats and hunt for mummies at the base of a volcano.

Andean hiking or bustling city exploration? You don’t have to pick between the two! The Bolivia Adventure Tour is one of the most diverse ways to experience Bolivia’s mountains, cities, and lakes without missing a thing.

The Bolivia Adventure Tour truly offers it all. Begin the tour by exploring the streets of La Paz, an energetic city of contrast and excitement. Sample local cuisine and shop in handcrafted markets before setting off for a catamaran tour on Lake Titicaca. The warm sun and pristine lake are a stark contrast to the high-altitude mountains you’ll be hiking through!

Trek below the towering Condoriri Massif as you hop from one perfect alpine lake to the next. Then, the Bolivia Adventure whisks you to the largest salt flat in the world, and then up to the high-altitude lagoons of the Lipez region. Tend to the llamas in local villages and help them prepare traditional meals. Then, climb volcanoes and search for mummies from 700 BC in remote towns. Unforgettable places at every turn!

The Bolivia Adventure Tour is one of the most exciting adventures you can take in incredible Bolivia.
