TRAVEL IN BOLIVIA

Rich in culture and natural beauty, a trip to Bolivia is a must for lovers of history, adventure and all things mystical. From the small Andean towns to big cities of La Paz and Sucre, Bolivia is as varied in experiences as it is in people. Home to over 36 ethnic groups, learn about the history of Bolivia’s people at the Museum of Bolivian Andean Textiles. With a collection dating back to pre-historic times, here you’ll discover traditional weaving techniques and the ancient customs and beliefs behind them. If you’re around in June, head up to the altiplano to participate in the Aymara New Year Celebrations. Here, you’ll witness traditional ceremonies, including the offering of llama foetuses. If you’re curious about the meaning behind these rituals, head to the Witches’ Market in La Paz to ask local vendors about the traditional ingredients. If you’re game enough, get your fortune told by a local Witch Doctor.


For the outdoor adventurers among us, Bolivia is your ultimate destination. Rich in diverse vistas, cram as much natural beauty into your holiday as possible. Start at Salar de Uyuni, the famous Bolivian salt lake, where you’ll experience one of the most barren and breath-taking landscapes in the world. Next, visit the red Laguna Colorada, where hundreds of pink flamingos make their homes in and around the red volcanic waters. If you’re not scared of heights – or accidents – head up to Death Road for amazing mountainous views. Don’t let the yearly death toll put you off!


With its range of mouth-watering foods, you’ll never go hungry in Bolivia. Tuck into hearty dishes like silpancho or sajta, or chow down on some of the country’s most famous snacks, like salteñas or chicharrón. With so much to see and taste, you’ll never be stuck for what to do in Bolivia. Let Contiki be your guide to this magical mountainous country.
