Highlights

Explore the Amazon rainforest of Bolivia on this guided tour

Get deep inside the Amazon rainforest of Bolivia, full of exotic wildlife and plants.

Trek out into the wetlands and search for massive anacondas hiding in the brush.

Swim in the warm Yacuma river in the company of native pink river dolphins.

Relax in rainforest lodges underneath trees of monkeys and near rare rainforest animals.

The Bolivian Amazonia Tour is an exhilarating chance to immerse yourself in the wonder of Bolivia’s Amazon jungle, one of the most incredible regions on the planet. The jungle is packed with rare wildlife and plants, and it’s just waiting for you to explore!

The Bolivian Amazonia Tour reveals a wild world waiting in Bolivia. The bustling city of La Paz will seem far behind as you journey into thick forest, down into swampy wetlands, and up into bird-filled trees. You’ll walk under trees filled with howler monkeys, paddle over swamps of alligators, and spot anacondas hiding in the brush.

Build your own log raft and then jump into the river to swim with pink dolphins while the sun sets overhead. For a brave nature enthusiast, the Amazonia Journey is the adventure of a lifetime! Spend evenings tucked into rainforest lodges as the forest thrums around you, and then wake up to spot macaws in the treetops above.

From capybara to caiman, the Amazonia Journey is a once in a lifetime chance to see the legendary ecosystem of the Amazon of Bolivia.
