From La Paz to the Uyuni Salt Flats, explore two of the New World's oldest nations 

An in-depth discovery of these fascinating countries! Landlocked in the high Andes, Bolivia is a simply breathtaking destination. Home to some of the oldest cultures in the New World, the largest lake on the continent, the most dramatic landscapes in Latin America, and a bevy of unique wildlife, Bolivia offers the adventurous traveler a multitude of natural and cultural wonders. On this comprehensive tour, visit La Paz, the world’s highest capital city; cruise along legendary Lake Titicaca; stroll through colonial Potosi and Sucre; and marvel at the glittering white expanse of the Uyuni Salt Flats. Continue to Chile’s Atacama Desert – a sparsely populated plateau extending from the Pacific to the high antiplano. Spend three days immersed in the beauty of Atacama, which boasts turquoise lakes, red plains, shifting dunes, stark volcanoes and one of the world’s largest saltpan — Salar de Atacama — a magnet for three species of flamingos: Andean, Chilean and James.

    La Paz

    Arrive aboard your independent flights to La Paz, Bolivia—in the shadow of the majestic Mt. Illimani—and transfer to the Casa Grande Hotel, where you spend the next two nights.

    Accommodation: Casa Grande Hotel or similar.

  • Day 2

    La Paz

    Enjoy a morning at leisure, taking time to adapt to the city’s altitude—11,942 feet above sea level. Enjoy an afternoon exploring the treasures of La Paz, discovering a living history of indigenous, colonial and modern wonders. Our afternoon tour includes stops at an underground temple, Indian Market, famed Bennett Monolith and even the witch doctor’s market. Soar over the city aboard Mi Teleférico, La Paz’s urban cable car system. After dinner at a local restaurant, return to our hotel. 

    Accommodation: Casa Grande Hotel or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 3

    La Paz / Lake Titicaca

    After breakfast drive to Huatajata or Cocotoni and board our hydrofoil cruise to Moon Island. On this mystical Island are the ruins of the Iñak Uyu, Sun Virgins' Temple. Here the most beautiful maiden of the Incas where chosen to become the wives of the Inca nobles. The Virgins of the Sun were responsible of maintaining an eternal fire in devotion to their sun god, Viracocha. Continue to Sun Island. According to Andean mythology, Viracocha sent his son and daughter, Manco Kapac and Mama Ojllo, to Earth, where they found the Inca Empire. Visit Pilcocaina Sun Temple before taking a hike along an ancient trail. Your afternoon is free to explore the nearby community and savor sunset over Lake Titicaca.

    Sun Island / Copacabana / La Paz

    Climb 206 Inca steps to enjoy a breathtaking panorama of the lake and Andes. It is possible to drink water from a sacred fountain, believed to grant eternal youth and happiness. After lunch board a hydrofoil to Copacabana. Once sacred to the Incas, Copacabana is home to the revered statue of Bolivia’s patron saint — La Virgin de la Candelaria. While this small city is far less famous than the beach of the same name in Brazil, Rio’s famed beach was actually named after this town. Tossed in a storm, grateful Brazilian fisherman credited their rescue to the Virgin of Copacabana. Learn about the culture of building reed boats at Huatajata and the Andean Roots Eco-village before returning to La Paz and the Casa Grande Hotel.

    Accomodation: Casa Grande Hotel or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 5

    La Paz / Sucre

    Fly to Sucre, Bolivia’s constitutional capital, and arguably one of the country’s most pleasant cities. Our afternoon tour includes an overview of colonial architecture as well as Liberty House, where the Bolivian declaration of independence was signed. At the ASUR Museum of Indigenous Art, discover the work being done by local anthropologists to maintain and strengthen the cultural integrity and economies of the Jalq’a and Tarabuco communities, by promoting high quality indigenous arts and textiles. Spend the next two nights at Parador Santa Maria la Real.

    Accommodation: Parador Santa Maria la Real or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner

    Accommodation: Parador Santa Maria la Real or similar.

     

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 7

    Sucre / Potosi / Uyuni

    Set out early this morning for Potosi. Once one of the richest cities in the world, Potosi boasts many beautifully-restored buildings, including several ornate religious buildings and colorful winding streets full of charming vendors. Silver put Potosi on the map in the mid-16th century and it quickly became the Americas’ largest city and the world’s largest source of the precious metal. The mines of Cerro Rico unfortunately found their infamy in their inhumane mining practices and have been operating, in various degrees of success, for over 400 years. Tour the mines, which are both fascinating and sobering, and have the opportunity to witness the current state of mining in South America. After savoring a relaxing lunch, visit the Casa de la Moneda (Royal Mint). Here, wooden machinery was used to transform silver from the mines into coins for Spain. Continue to Uyuni, where we spend the next two nights at Hotel de Sal Luna.

    Accommodation: Hotel de Sal Luna or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 8

    Uyuni Salt Flat

    Set out on a 4 x 4 excursion to discover the wonders of the high altiplano! Explore the Uyuni Salt Flat, or Salar, the largest salt pan in the world. In this landscape of snow-white crystals, deep blue sky and hot pink flamingoes, you can take perspective-defying pictures. Visit Incahuasi Island, or Fish Island, one of many “islands” in this pre-historic sea. Once the top of an ancient volcano, Incahuasi is formed of algae and fossils. Incahuasi is a unique ecosystem, which includes a stranded colony of the chinchilla-related viscacha and most impressively, enormous cacti, some more than 30 feet tall. Stop in the foothills of the Tunupa volcano to learn about the 3,000-year-old Coquesa mummies, a collection of bodies mummified by the arid, salty air. Throughout our day we’ll see salt processing and extraction plus watch for bubbling springs—called Ojos de Agua or “eyes of salt”—where water wells up under the salt crust. Return to Hotel de Sal Luna this evening.

    Accommodation: Hotel de Sal Luna or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 9

    Uyuni / Laguna Hedionda

    Continue our exploration of Bolivia’s westernmost highlands, with stops at the stunning lakes of Canapa, Chiar Kota, Honda and Hedionda. The shores of these glacial lakes are lined with three flamingo species—James, Andean and Chilean. Flamingos thrive here while feeding upon the lagoons’ algae, which would be poisonous to most other wildlife. The landscape is also dotted with llama, alpaca and possibly even vicuña. Continue to Los Flamencos EcoHotel, perched on the shores of Lake Hedionda. Savor a dinner prepared using traditional Bolivian techniques and organic products.

    Accommodation: Los Flamencos EcoHotel or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 10

    Abaroa National Reserve: Red Lagoon & Green Lagoon / San Pedro de Atacama

    Discover lagoons in a diverse array of colors, from the milky Laguna Blanca to the blood-red Laguna Colorada, "Red Lagoon,” and the green Laguna Verde, “Green Lagoon”—each getting their striking color from algae. This is the ideal place to photograph flamingos. Seeing them in such large numbers may lead you to believe they’re very numerous. But in fact James’s flamingoes were once believed to be extinct before being rediscovered in this area. At "Sol de Mañana" Geysers, watch lava boil at the bottom of craters, while fumaroles spout water and super-heated steam high into the blue sky. Continue to across the Chilean border and check into the Desertica Lodge, our home for two nights. Our journey has been timed during the New Moon so you can enjoy stargazing during low-light.

    Accommodation: Desertica Lodge or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 11

    Atacama

    Savor breakfast overlooking the geothermal field of fumaroles and giant cacti at El Tatio Geyser—world’s second highest geyser field. The steam and vapors are all the more impressive with the cold and the light of the early morning. At the geyser field, we also see thermal pools, mud fountains, colorful rock formations and endemic wildlife, including viscacha and nandues. Cap-off our morning taking in the enormous dunes, dramatic rock formations and stark lunar landscape of Moon Valley. The lagoons Miscanti and Miñiques—part of Los Flamencos National Reserve—act as mirrors, reflecting dramatic volcanic peaks. In addition to flamingos, watch for rare horned coot and even culpeo fox. Take advantage of another night to practice your astronomy skills. The Atacama’s remoteness, altitude, lack of light pollution and arid atmosphere make it one of Earth’s best places to stargaze.Accommodation: Desertica Lodge or similar.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 12

    Atacama

    Spend a relaxing morning exploring the town of San Pedro de Atacama, which grew around a small oasis. Stroll through a sleepy plaza past the old church and stop by local craft workshops to learn about efforts to preserve traditional art. This afternoon, transfer to Calama airport to board your independent flight from Calama to Santiago and connect with your international flights.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch

Essential Info

Visas

Bolivia

British Citizens, most Western European nationals, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, South Africans and most other nationalities do not require visas. US citizens who are not of Bolivian origin need a visa of which full details are available on www.boliviawdc.com. If you are in any doubt, please contact the nearest Bolivian Embassy.

Chile

British, most European and most other nationalities, including Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders, do not require visas. All other nationalities should contact the nearest Chilean Embassy if in doubt. Citizens of Australia pay a fee on first entry into Chile by air (cash US Dollars only, no credit cards or cheques) $95 - valid for only 90 days). There is no fee for other nationalities at the time of writing. The one-time charge is valid for the life of your passport so keep the stub stapled in.

Vaccinations

Bolivia

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. 

A Yellow Fever certificate is required for travellers over 1 year of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission. 

There is a risk of yellow fever transmission in parts of Bolivia. Vaccination is recommended for travellers aged 9 months and older travelling to areas below 2,300m east of the Andes Mountains. These areas include the entire departments of Beni, Pando, and Santa Cruz, and some areas in the departments of Chuquisaca, Cochabamba, La Paz and Tarija. 

Malaria is present throughout the year however, with the exception of the northern provinces of Beni and Pando (the Amazon region), and Nor Cinti province in the south, the risk of Malaria is low and antimalarial tablets are not usually recommended, although may be considered for certain higher risk travellers. If visiting the Amazon region in the north, Malaria precautions are essential. If visiting Nor Cinti province, Malaria precautions may sometimes be recommended for certain travellers.

You should be aware that Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever are present in the Amazon region in northern Bolivia - these are non-preventable diseases caused by daytime biting mosquitoes. You should always apply insect repellent and wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers while in the rainforest to avoid being bitten.

Zika fever is a mosquito‐borne viral disease and a known risk in places visited on this trip. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available, we therefore strongly recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites. 

Chile

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Recommended vaccinations are: Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available for Dengue, and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Eating and Drinking

All breakfasts, 10 lunches and 10 dinners included.

Bolivian cuisine is a fusion between Spanish and Andean traditions and varies from one region to another. In the lowlands fruit, vegetables, yucca and fish are abundant whereas in the altiplano these are less readily available and there are more spiced dishes to combat the cold. Bolivian cuisine has a reputation for its meat dishes but corn (maize), quinoa and potatoes are also part of the staple diet.

Common street food and snacks include ‘salteñas’ (baked pastries filled with spiced meat or vegetables), ‘buñuelos’ (sweet or savoury bread – often stuffed with cheese) and ‘papas rellenas’ (deep-fried battered stuffed potatoes).

Popular main dishes include ‘pique a lo macho’ (a kind of beef stir-fry, served with chunky chips), ‘picante de pollo’ (spicy chicken) and ‘tucumanas’ (a sort of pasty). In Sucre try ‘mondongo’ (a dish made of chicharron – crispy fried pork usually accompanied by corn, potatoes and a rich chilli sauce) and in La Paz check out a ‘sandwich de chola’ (pork sandwich).

Weather

Since Chile is in the southern hemisphere, the seasons are the reverse of those in Europe; trips are therefore organized between October and March, to take advantage of the longer, warmer days in the rather brief summer period. During these months the summer temperatures in Santiago reach a maximum of 35degC.

Differences in topography and climate separate Bolivia’s lowlands and highlands into distinct areas. Weather conditions vary significantly from region to region.

Lowlands, including Santa Cruz - A humid tropical climate with clear-cut wet and dry seasons and an average temperature of 30 °C (86 °F). One of the wettest regions in Bolivia, the rainy season extending from late September to May, sees an annual rainfall average between 1000 and 4000 mm (40 – 150″). The heavy rainfall is caused by winds blowing in from the Amazon rainforest. From the month of May there is less rain and more blue sky due to drier winds. 

Altiplano (highlands), including Lake Titicaca, La Paz, Sucre, Potosí and Uyuni - Climate varies from cool and humid to semi-arid. The average annual temperature ranges from 15 to 27°C (60 – 80ºF) but in the dry season its more likely to be 10 to 15°C with the coldest temperatures occurring in the south-western portion of the Altiplano during the months of June and July. Nights can get very chilly, dropping to around 0 °C. In Salar de Uyuni, night-time temperatures in the dry season may fall as low as -15°C (particularly from May to August). Between April and September there is a chance of snow, especially to the north of the highlands, but it is not very common. The unrelenting rainy season occurs between December and March, but we do not run any departures as getting around can be difficult and treacherous. 

Is this trip for you?

This tour has been graded 2: Leisurely/Moderate

Bolivia is less developed than many of its South American counterparts and things do not always happen as planned; expect the unexpected and approach travel here with an adventurous spirit.

The sightseeing around archaeological sites and tours of some of the cities may involve walking up and down steep streets or on uneven steps/ground. As such, you should have a good level of mobility and a reasonable level of fitness.

Although graded Leisurely/Moderate (level 2), the altitude can make physical activity feel more tiring than at sea level. As this trip spends considerable time at altitude we ask you to refer to the Altitude Warning within the Trip Notes for more information and advice on how to limit the effects of altitude sickness.

Isla del Sol 4,000m
La Paz 3,640m
Sucre: 2,800m 
Potosí 4,060m
Salar de Uyuni ranging from between 3,650m and 4,850m
San Pedro de Atacama 2,408m

The maximum altitude on this trip is 4,850m in Uyuni– please ensure that your insurance covers you up to this altitude.

Due to the altitude you should expect some low temperatures, particularly during the Salar de Uyuni adventure when it regularly falls well below freezing at night. 

In Uyuni you will spend a considerable amount of time in the 4WD vehicle, although there will be plenty of stops to enjoy the landscape, take photos, and to explore on foot. 

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as not suitable for full wheelchair users, but it may be suitable for other persons of reduced mobility. Please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Dates & Prices

An overview of flight options

Exodus is committed to making joining our tours as easy as possible, wherever you live. We generally only block book seats from London, but this certainly does not mean that you need to fly from there. Depending on the route and airlines available, there will usually be various options available for those who want to fly from their local airport.

This page aims to provide a useful overview of the options available to our clients. However, the best flight arrangements should be tailored to your personal requirements, so please contact our Sales team for expert advice.

 

What kind of options do I have ?

1. We can book for you: Flights from anywhere in the world - not via London  

Depending on the route, this may be direct or via an overseas hub like Amsterdam, the Middle East or elsewhere. On short haul routes there may be direct flights with low cost airlines, charter flights or scheduled airlines. Exodus can book most, but not all, of these for you. The most appropriate airline may be different to that which we use for the group flight from London, but many people now travel on different airlines and meet up with their fellow passengers at the destination.

Pros  Cons
  • May be the most direct route
  • Often the extra fare compared to the London flight is minimal.
  • As you will be in the hands a single airline for your entire journey, the airline will be responsible for your bags and your connections.
  • You may not be able to join the group transfers. However, we can usually arrange private transfers, or book your flights to try and coincide with the group transfers. See notes on transfer arrangements below.

 

2. We can book for you: Connecting flights from your local airport to London

Exodus can book connecting flights to London so you can join the group flight there. Connecting times will be followed according to airline advice, or as requested by clients. There are two types of fares we can use for this option: a 'through-fare' or a 'published fare'.
 
a) A 'through-fare' is where you will be in the main airline's care throughout. You change planes, but your bags are checked all the way through to your final destination. 

b) A 'published fare' ticket is completely seperate from your onward ticket from London. It is usually cheaper than a through-fare but will need to be paid for and issued as soon as it is booked. This can be a problem if your tour has not yet reached minimum numbers. On 'published fares' neither airline is aware that you have connecting flights, so Exodus is responsible for timing your connection, not the airlines involved. The tickets are also usually non changeable and non refundable.

Pros  Cons
  • Depending on the fare type, Exodus or the airline is responsible for flight connections.
  • Through fare tickets can be expensive.
  • On a published fare, tickets must be issued immediately; tickets on published fares can be very difficult to change if onward flight times change; bags are not checked though to your final destination.
  • Published fares are non-refundable.

 

3. Booking some or all of the flights yourself

You can also book connecting air travel yourself, either to London, or all the way to the start point. There may be certain airlines or routes we don't have access to, so this is always an option. However, if you make your own travel arrangements you become liable for any delays, cancellations or missed connections, and Exodus is not required to offer refunds if you have trouble reaching the start of your trip.

Pros  Cons
  • You might find cheaper fares, or routes not available to Exodus.
  • You are responsible for any delays or missed connections, and the cost of the tour is not protected should you miss your flight be cancelled.

 

 Notes on transfer arrangements

Sometimes it is possible to travel on a different airline to the group flight from London. Where this is the case, we need to think about ensuring you meet up with the group with minimum extra cost and hassle.

  • On certain trips, it is easy to arrive on a different flight and still meet the group at the hotel with time in hand. We can usually arrange private transfers (at extra cost) or offer advice on taking a taxi to the start hotel.
  • On other trips (especially in Europe), the transfer meets the group flight and then travels some distance to the first night's accommodation. Where this is the case, our Sales team will try to arrange flights that arrive before (and depart after) the group. However, we do have to make it clear in your final documentation that if your flights are delayed, the transfer cannot wait for you. While Exodus or our local operators will do what we can to help you reach the start point of the tour, any additional costs must be paid by the client.
