Landlocked in the true heart of South America with sparsely populated areas, much of Bolivia’s land has preserved its natural beauty, offering a great range of geographical diversity with the Amazon basin in the North and East and the Altiplano high plateau in the West and South West.

Santa Cruz, the country’s Amazonian city and financial hub, is both the gateway for thrilling excursions to the steamy jungle and for adventures in the footsteps of famous revolutionist Che Guevara.

The alpacas-dotted Andean Range fascinates with its natural icons of Lake Titicaca, the salt flats of Uyuni, and its multi-coloured lakes. Bolivia is not for the faint-hearted; rattling down the world’s most dangerous road in Yunga or paragliding above mountainous La Paz, the country’s ravines and plateaus present nerve-racking challenges.

Hosting the continent’s largest percentage of indigenous people, the vivid and diverse cultures invite travellers of any kind to witness traditional pre-Colombian celebrations and processions – that are likely to take place once a month at least.
