Days 1-2 La Paz

Acclimatise to the clear mountain air of lofty La Paz – one of the world's highest cities – exploring the myriad alleys and street stalls of this sprawling crater turned city. If the undulating laneways and local hustle and bustle get too much, why not hop on a local bus and make for the surreal solitude of the Valle de la Luna's rocky landscapes.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 3-6 Uyuni/Salar de Uyuni

Explore the strange and stunning landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni by 4x4. Infinite blue skies meet endless white salt on what was once a prehistoric lake, making for plenty of fun and fantastical photo opportunities. Continue on to Laguna Colorado – a shallow salt lake of magnificent red hues dotted by bright pink flamingos.

Days 9-10 Sucre

Travel to Sucre and wander amid the whitewashed colonial buildings and quaint city plazas of Bolivia's capital. Adrenaline junkies can take to the surrounding peaks for some excellent mountain biking options or perhaps give hang gliding a shot.

Days 11-12 La Paz

Return to La Paz by plane. Use free time to get to know a different side of the city at the Mercado de Hechiceria (Witches' Market) – a place brimming with unusual trinkets and curious sights. Locals visit here for herbs, folk remedies and fortune-telling services. Keep an eye out for yatiri (witch doctors) who circulate throughout the market. Opt to finish the trip with a farewell group dinner, a great opportunity to say goodbye to new friends and share memories of the trip.
