Some of the best bits
Visit the world’s highest capital
From the moment you set foot off the plane, you’ll be up high at 3,680m. La Paz is the world’s highest capital city and so take the first few days slowly, acclimatise to the altitude and soak up the culture. Hop on the unique cable car public transport network, sample local cuisine with the menu del dia and roam the Spanish architecture of the city.
Hike high in the Andes
Take on one of the high altitude routes that will weave you through the Altiplano – the high plains of the Central Andes. Surround yourself with snow capped mountains and electric blue lakes as you and your team conquer demanding trails with views and sunsets you’ll recall for a lifetime. Keen climbers can scale Pico Austria, and take in uninterrupted, panoramic views from its 5,335m summit.
Witness the world’s largest Salt Flats
Explore the Salar de Uyuni – the world’s largest salt flat. This haunting white expanse is Bolivia’s most iconic landscape which also powers the world’s batteries, supplying almost 70% of the global demand for lithium. You know what to do – it’s all about the perspective poses for some epic team shots!
Soak up sacred Lake Titicaca
Incan mythology believes Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the first Inca King, so it holds a special sacred magic for local communities. Soak up sunsets here at the world’s highest navigable lake. 3,800m above sea level with depths down to 300m, ancient temples are buried deep and over 40 islands pepper the lake. Get involved with local community initiatives to improve housing and upgrade rural schools.
Actively support animal welfare
Meet a local organisation campaigning to stop the illegal trade of animals. Visit the Sena Verde wildlife sanctuary founded by Vickyo and Marcelo to rehabilitate abused trafficked animals like monkeys, tapirs, pumas and parrots, and learn about their proactive awareness campaigns with local communities.
“I loved working at the school with the children. Not only was it relaxing, but it also gave myself and the team a chance to reflect and give back.“
“Bolivia was amazing; experiencing a new culture and having to find new ways to survive in completely diverse conditions – like camping in minus temperatures at high altitude – was out of this world!”
