Discover incredible landscapes and fascinating wildlife on this 8-day Bolivia Lakes & Pampas tour, ideal for families of all sizes and all ages. Visit villages and islands on the highest navigable lake in the world, stay at a unique rainforest eco-lodge and roam through grassy pampas, and explore the surreal salt flats of Uyuni for an unforgettable Bolivian adventure.
After overnighting in the charming lofty heights of La Paz, your tour begins in earnest in the famous Lake Titicaca region of Bolivia. Situated on the border with Peru, Lake Titicaca is the highest of the large freshwater lakes in the world, surrounded with culture, history, and a natural beauty all its own.
Your first taste of what the area offers is your very own pilgrimage to the lakeside city of Copacabana and its ancient temple of the Dark Virgin. From there, you will explore two of the lake’s most famous islands – La Isla de la Luna (Moon Island) and La Isla Del Sol (Sun Island) – both with deep historical and religious connections to the Incas.
While on Sun Island, enjoy a scenic walk accompanied by llamas as you make your way up to your hotel for the night. The La Posada del Inca Eco-Lodge at the top of the island is a rustic retreat offering sweeping views out over the lake and to the snow-capped Andes in the distance.
Pampas Jungle Tour
After a relaxing stay on Sun Island, you’ll be transported back to La Paz before heading out on your Bolivia pampas jungle tour.
Rurrenabaque, a small town on the Alto Beni River, is often referred to as the gateway to the rainforest and pampas of Bolivia. Here you can become familiar with the resident wildlife, including sloths, anteaters, and various birds.
At Santa Rosa, you’ll take a short boat trip to your riverside eco-lodge accommodations from where you can go sport fishing for piranha and join a night exploration to spot the resident black caimans. Join jungle explorations, go on a search for Anacondas, and maybe even swim with the legendary pink dolphins.
Explore the Bolivian Pampas with your guides and get to know the landscape and the wildlife that live within. Listen to the chorus of howler monkeys and roam the expansive grassland plain found here, stopping to take spectacular photos along the way.
Uyuni Salt Lake Tour
Still one more spectacular landscape awaits you in Bolivia, Uyuni Salt Lake. Tour this once prehistoric lake which has dried to become the largest salt flats in the world, a near desert-like domain of blinding-white saline scenery, dotted with cacti-studded islands and balletic pink flamingos. Wander through this unique locale and learn about its history before ending your and catching your flight home.
