From La Paz to Lake Titicaca to Uyuni, this tour is sure to surprise, thrill, and satisfy the adventurer in you while providing luxurious comfort along the way.
Upon arriving in the breathtaking city of La Paz, you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep as you prepare to venture out and explore its many offerings. Filled with modern, colonial, and indigenous influences, La Paz offers something for everyone, including a historic center, bustling squares, cathedrals, palaces, shops, and restaurants.
You can also explore nearby Moon Valley and take a ride across the sky on the Teleferico cable car to experience the most spectacular views of the city and beyond. Seek out more city treasures if you like or relax before the next part of your tour takes you to beautiful Lake Titicaca.
The Isles and Villages of Lake Titicaca
Once you arrive at Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest, commercially navigable lake, you’ll select your own adventure for the day. Expert guides await onboard a deluxe hydrofoil to help you choose between the lake’s activities and destinations and to ensure your experience here is the best it can be.
Explore the largest island on the lake, La Isla Del Sol (Sun Island), and discover its many archaeological ruins, including the Inca Great Staircase and Sacred Fountain. Add a stop on Moon Island to your itinerary and explore its religious sites, or explore any other location you desire before a return to La Paz for the night.
The Salt Flats of Uyuni and Beyond
From La Paz, you’ll take a short flight to Uyuni, where you’ll begin by exploring the region’s various remote towns full of history, culture, and charm and spectacular lake-filled landscapes along the way. From the small mining town of San Cristobal to the Bolivian culture experience at Villa Alota, a unique adventure awaits.
After some cultural contemplation, the Laguna Route beckons you towards the Bolivia-Chile border and the beginnings of the Atacama Desert. Behold the mesmorizing natural scenery that surrounds you on this epic journey that takes you to the wildlife-rich Eduardo Avaroa National Park.
For many visitors the llama, vicuna, and vizcachas herds, active Sol de Manana Geysers, and spectacular volcano views are reason enough to make the journey, but it is its alluring colored lakes that give the ruta de las lagunas its name, from the reddish hues of Laguna Colorada that’s home to several species of flamingo, to the green and white waters of the Laguna Verde and Laguna Blanca lakes that neighbor each other at the base of Licancabur Volcano.
Before returning to La Paz and the end of your tour, you’ll have the chance to visit the island oasis of Incahuasi in the midst of the salt flats – which will provide you with spectacular scenery, unique photo opportunities, and a silence incomparable to anywhere else on the planet – and the small village of Coquesa to marvel in wonder at the Coquesa Mummies and towering Thunupa Volcano. A spectacular ending to a spectacular adventure.
