Day wise Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Arrival

    You will be met at Sucre Airport and transferred to your hotel in this capital, which is regarded as the most beautiful city in Bolivia.

    Check into your hotel in this high altitude city in the southern highlands, situated at 9,214 ft (2,810 m).

  • Day 2 : Sucre

    After a morning at leisure, in the afternoon enjoy a city tour of the main sights of Sucre.

    Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, much of Sucre's colonial architecture has been preserved, with many beautiful whitewashed buildings and pretty patios. It was in Sucre that independence was proclaimed in 1825 and it remains the nation’s capital and symbolic heart, although La Paz is today the seat of the government and treasury.

    Originally a Jesuit chapel, the House of Liberty Museum (Casa de la Libertad) has the Declaration of Independence on display. On Plaza 25 de Mayo, the main square, you can see the colonial Cathedral and in Bolivar Park you can see small replicas of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe from Paris.

    Other places of interest in this city include the convent and museum of La Recoleta; the museum of Indigenous Indian Art & Textiles and the Museo Universitario Charcas, which is situated in a restored 17th century building and houses three separate museums - the Anthropology Museum, Colonial Museum and Gallery of Contemporary Art.

    Note: Museums in Bolivia are closed on Mondays & public holidays.

  • Day 3 : Potosi

    Today we leave Sucre and travel 3-hours to the silver mining town of Potosi.

    We cross the old Puente Arce bridge, as we ascend to this colonial city in the highlands. Situated at 13,420 ft (4,090 m), its is one of the highest settlements in the world. It was here at Cerro Rico ('Rich Mountain') that the Spanish conquistadors found unimaginable mineral wealth and they located their mint here. We visit this silver mine, which is still working and was once the richest in the world, travelling deep underground to see the tough working conditions.

    Afterwards we spend some time exploring the town of Potosi, with its colonial streets and artisan market. Plaza 10 de Noviembre, the main square, is lined with beautiful colonial buildings including an ornate cathedral, the famous Spanish Mint, San Francisco church and San Lorenzo church, with its wonderful stone carvings in the baroque-mestizo style. We then leave town and check into our hotel.

    Note: Protective clothing and helmets will be provided for the underground visit.

  • Day 4 : Colchani

    Today we continue our journey through the Andes, as we travel 4-hours to Colchani.

    You will see lots of colours, erosion and cactus as we drive through the villages of Chaquilla and Tika Tika. We travel past the Pulacayo tin mine and arrive in Uyuni, the gateway to Salar de Uyuni - the largest salt flats in the world.

    We check into our hotel in the small town of Colchani, where the locals produce salt.

  • Day 5 : Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats

    Today we spend the day exploring the magnificent Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats, with included picnic lunch.

    Our first stop is at the Train Cemetery filled with the hollowed out bodies of locomotives that have completely rusted over. Most of these trains date back to the early 20th century and were imported from Britain to improve the rail network here, but the project was abandoned and the trains left to the mercy of the salt winds.

    We then return to the salt flats. At over 4,000 square miles (10,000 sq.km), this vast high altitude expanse was once a prehistoric lake that ran dry, leaving behind strange desert-like landscapes - with brightly reflecting white salt crusts (remember to wear sunglasses), unusual rock formations and eerie cacti-studded islands. Over half the world's lithium reserves are found in the brine under these salt crusts, which are an important breeding ground for thousands of pink flamingos.

    After spending some time admiring this astonishing scenery, we crossing to Isla Incahuasi - a rocky outcrop of land that was once an island but is now situated in the heart of the salt flats and populated with giant cacti that grow to over 33 ft (10 m). After a spectaclar day, we return to our hotel and enjoy a desert sunset.

  • Day 6 : Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats

    Today enjoy an excursion to the northern side of the astonishing Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats.

    Here we view the Coquesa Mummies, human archeological remains found in a cave near the dormant Tunupa Volcano. You will have a great view of the immensity of the salt flats from here.

    After an included picnic lunch, we drive back to Colchani.

  • Day 7 : La Paz

    Transfer 30-minutes to Uyuni Airport for your onward flight.

    You will be met at La Paz Airport and transferred to your hotel in the highest capital city in the world at over 11,900 ft (3,600 m).

    Check in and enjoy views of the snow-capped peaks of Mount Illimani.

  • Day 8 : Tiwanaku Ruins

    Today we drive 1.5-hours across the Bolivian altiplano to explore the Tiwanaku Ruins, the capital of an ancient civilisation situated near the southeastern shores of Lake Titikaka.

    Tiwanaku (or Tiahuanaco) is a pre-Inca archaelogical site dating back to 1,580 BC and therefore considered to be the cradle of American civilisation. Impressive buildings include the Kalasasaya Temple, the semi-subterranean Earth Temple; the remarkable Gate of the Sun; the enormous Ponce ('Right') and Fraile ('Friar') monoliths and the Akapana Pyramid.

    After lunch (own account) we return to the city for a tour of Nuestra Señora de La Paz, framed by the majestic triple-peaked Illimani Mountain. With its pre-Hispanic influences and traditions, including magic rites that are practised on the streets, this city has a mixture of indigenous, colonial and modern areas.

    We visit the famous Witchdoctor's Market and the colonial San Francisco Church, whose mestizobaroque facade features carvings of masks, dragons and tropical birds. Here you can take the stone tunnel stairway to the roof for views across the city's skyline. On the main square, Plaza Murillo, you will see the Cathedral, the Government Palace and the National Congress buildings. Some interesting museums are clustered on the charming colonial street of Calle Jaen, and the replica of the semi-subterranean temple of the Tiwanaku culture is well worth seeing. You can also view typical handicrafts in Sagarnaga Street.

    Our tour finishes with a drive to Moon Valley to walk around its dramatic lunar landscapes and tall clay spires. At the end of your tour, take the 'teleferico' (cable car) for outstanding views of La Paz.

    Note: Museums in Bolivia are closed on Mondays & public holidays.

  • Day 9 : Copacabana On The Shores Of Lake Titicaca

    This morning enjoy a scenic 3.5-hour drive through the Andean Highlands to the town of Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

    On arrival we visit the church with its famous shrine to the Virgen of Copacabana, the patron saint of Bolivia. We then board the 1-hour catamaran to Sun Island, the legendary birthplace of the Inca empire.

    We stop at Huacani for an included 'aptapi' (typical highlands lunch) before continuing by boat to the ruins of the Pilkokaina Inca temple. On arrival we walk 1-hour to our lodge, enjoying wonderful views over Lake Titicaca, so wear good walking shoes.

    Note: Your baggage will be carried to your Sun Island lodge by donkey, so pack an overnight bag and only bring what is essential. Your main bags will be stored in Copacabana. This overnight stay is not suitable if you have any mobility issues.

  • Day 10 : Challapampa

    Walk 1-hour down to Yumani village this morning for the 1-hour boat ride to the Chincana Ruins near the island's northern tip. Believed to be the birthplace of the sun, here you can see the remains of the old Inca Palace - a maze of stone walls and tiny doorways known as 'The Labyrinth'.
