When is the best time to visit?
The best time to visit Bolivia is during their winter months (June - August), when you may experience colder weather in the higher elevations and deserts, but the clearer skies will be less likely to interrupt your travel plans.
Where to go in Bolivia?
Home to the largest percentage of indigenous people in South America, Bolivia is known for its constant parades and celebrations. Check out the ancient ruins of Pumapunku, the world’s largest salt flat at Salar de Uyuni, and the verdant La Paz valleys.
How many days do I need?
Many travelers might feel like one week in Bolivia is too little, but it has been done. Two weeks and up is a normal amount of time to spend in this incredible country.
This action-packed itinerary takes travelers to awe-inspiring natural attractions in two different countries. Start in Chile, exploring the massive sand dunes and otherworldly rock formations of the Atacama Desert. Then cross the border into Bolivia, where you'll spot flamingos in the wild in the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve, go for a dip in natural springs, and gaze out at the ethereal white expanse of the Uyuni Salt Flats.
Multi-colored mountains, giant cacti, canyons, monumental rock formations varying in color from white to red blood, turquoise-blue lagoons, brick red, emerald green — just to name a few of the highlights on this magical 4WD expedition from Tupiza to Uyuni. Welcome to southern Bolivia!
Immerse yourself in Bolivia's diverse beauty as you travel from the city to the cloud forest to the desert on this 9-day trip. Begin and end your tour in the world's highest capital city, and discover its many cultural treasures. Explore otherworldly red lakes and salt flats, engage with local communities, and travel on the exhilarating Death Road.
From the world's highest capital in the Andean highlands to the lush Amazon rainforest, Bolivia's natural wonders enchant visitors. Explore the hilly streets of La Paz, visit a community-based agritourism village run by indigenous artisans, and walk along the shores of Lake Titicaca, the second-largest lake in South America. Then float down a jungle river on a log raft and see a wide variety of wildlife in the Bolivian Amazon, including capybaras, macaws, caimans, anacondas, and the unique pink river dolphin.
Welcome to the Central Andes! On this 12-day adventure, you'll get to know the rich farming history of Bolivia's highlands as you visit lively markets, speak with local farmers and their families, and enjoy the traditional flavors and foods of the region. Dividing your time between the countryside and the city, you'll discover La Paz and Lake Titicaca, the Uyuni Salt Flats, and eastern farming valleys on this best-of-Bolivia trip.

From the Amazon jungle to soaring Andean peaks, Bolivia spans a vast range of elevation and a variety of microclimates and landscapes. Generally speaking, altitude and topography determine variations in local climates, but nationwide a clear-cut distinction between the "winter" dry season and "summer" wet season makes any decision on when to visit fairly simple. Winter brings sapphire skies and cooler temperatures, while in summer, wildflowers bloom, yet fog, clouds, and flooding are common.
To properly experience Bolivia's diverse ecosystems and rich culture, plan on at least 10 days. In that time, you can visit different regions and tour cities and villages. With five days or a week, it's possible to hit many highlights like the southern salt flats and the Bolivian Amazon. And if you can spare two weeks, go big with an in-depth exploration of indigenous villages and geological sites or a trekking adventure around highland volcanoes and high-altitude lakes.
Take your time exploring the best Bolivia has to offer on this epic 15-day tour around the country. Ride a cable car high above the streets of La Paz and descend deep into the heart of Potosí's famous silver mines, see flamingos in their natural habitat at lagoons in the desert, catch a dazzling sunset over the Uyuni Salt Flats, cruise around Lake Titicaca, and so much more. Dividing your time between urban centers and far-flung destinations, like quiet villages untouched by tourism and a quinoa farm where you'll spend the night with a local family, you'll learn all about Bolivia's one-of-a-kind culture, people, and places.

A good trip with a possibility to improve

Chilean part was a bit disappointing, as we didn’t realize it’s gonna be every day a half day trip from the hotel. We sort of expected the same customized trip with a small group where we could ask to stop somewhere and spend almost all the time outdoors.
Our first trip in Chile was as boring as possible and on the trip to Puritama Canyon the guide didn’t even speak English. Read more

Camila worked up a varied and comprehensive 16-day trip focused mostly on the altiplano. It was challenge for both of us to arrange a visit to Chipaya Village, a remote indigenous community. She was open to my requests for additions and changes and followed my progress daily while I was in-country. Camila provided probably the most detailed personal service I have ever had from a travel agency. Muchas gracias!
