Immerse yourself in beautiful surroundings, explore ancient sites, and roam vibrant cultural cities during the Amazon Forest and Inca Sites of Bolivia tour. You’ll stay in your choice of the best 4-star and 5-star accommodations, then board an Amazon Riverboat for your last two nights for a truly spectacular vacation here in South America.
Explore the Bustling Cities of La Paz and El Alto
Starting in La Paz, the capital city of Bolivia where modern, colonial, and indigenous worlds reside, you’ll be introduced to the diversity of this fascinating country. While here, explore palaces, cathedrals, local landmarks, and bustling squares. You’ll also have a chance to roam the nearby lunar-like landscape of Moon Valley, with its colossal clay spires and unique rocky formations.
Next, you’ll discover Bolivia’s second-largest city, El Alto, and immerse yourself in its unique Aymara culture, including unique trade fairs and gastronomic delights. You also won’t want to miss riding on the Teleferico, a cable car that chauffeurs you to the region’s most spectacular views.
Experience Lake Titicaca
Lake Titicaca is famously the highest navigable lake in the world. Along its edges are unique villages and towns, and the lake itself is host to over forty islands, many inhabited and many with Incan ruins waiting to be explored.
Start with an exploration of the town of Copacabana, on the edge of Lake Titicaca. Then climb aboard a boat to Moon Island to explore its ancient ruins. The larger Sun Island also awaits, offering numerous Incan sites to see before taking the Llama Trek to your island hotel for the night.
The village of Huatajata offers visitors several cultural and historic highlights, including a handicrafts village where you can discover and purchase local artwork. Additional unique experiences abound here, from visiting natural healers of the area to learning about the celestial navigation often relied upon by the Incas.
Discover the Uyuni Salt Flats
A unique adventure also awaits you in the Uyuni Salt Flats, the largest of its kind in the world and spanning over 4,000 square miles. This part of your tour doesn’t end with a one-time view of this jaw-dropping landscape but instead provides for a stay at a hotel made of salt blocks. Enjoy the comfortable accommodations here as well as the hotel’s steam room, hot tub, and various rejuvenating salt spa services.
You’ll also have opportunities to explore the surrounding area and even hike to see the famous cave of the Coquesa Mummies before flying to Santa Cruz for a tour of the Bolivia’s second largest city, the country’s agricultural and cultural hub, with its many attractions, churches, museums and art galleries.
Cruise the Amazon Rainforest
Once arriving in the city of Trinidad, you’ll board Bolivia’s only Amazon riverboat, the Reina De Enin. This solidly constructed 85-foot twin-hull catamaran offers up 12 comfortable, air-conditioned cabins with large windows for spectacular Amazon views.
While onboard, you’ll enjoy a casual, relaxed atmosphere as you explore the uncrowded Bolivian Amazon. Enjoy spending time on the multiple terraces and sun deck, and go for a swim in the pool created with a steel net extended from the back of the riverboat.
Depending on the particular time of year you visit, excursions may include exploring a local village, horseback riding through the plateaus and jungle, fishing for the infamous piranha, catching glimpses of the famous pink dolphins, and searching for the elusive black caimans.
