What's included in this trip
Explore Bolivia & Argentina SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Built in a canyon, the unique and bewtiching city of La Paz is filled with steep, cobbled streets, fascinating markets, evident tradition and captivating sights.
The delightful city of Sucre impresses visitors with its historic charm, indigenous roots and calm atmosphere, and is the perfect place to ease into the Bolivian way of life.
The loveliness of Potosi - one of the highest and more fascinating cities in the world - is mirrored by the harshness of its mines and mining history.
Popular due to its proximity to the Salar de Uyuni, the town of Uyuni is small and charming, and feels very remote, especially at the photogenic train cemetery. The world's largest salt flat, the Salar de Uyuni, is a spectacular sight - whether reflecting like a mirror in the wet or cracking during the dry.
Gorgeous desert landscapes, atmospheric, whitewashed adobe houses and a lively town centre has made San Pedro de Atacama one of Chile's most popular travel destinations.
With its well-preserved colonial buildings, candle-lit cafes, fine museums and surrounding natural beauty, Salta is one of Argentina's most charming cities.
Famed for its wine and raft of adventure activities, Mendoza is a lovely city to get lost in with its wide streets, excellent eateries and gorgeous plazas.
Set within a circle of snow-capped mountains, Santiago is vibrant, artistic and gourmet - and the gateway to adventures in the snow, sea or desert.

Guido, our guide, was excellent. I had major stomach problems that ultimately resulted in leaving the trip i/2 way--in Salta I told Guido about it--he said lets see a doctor in a private clinic, he went with me, translated, I got a steriod shot to calm the stomach [but to no avail] and just stayed with me to make sure all was OK--damn--wish that it were. Really hated to be a pain but Guido never indicated such--just concern for my health and hoped that I would continue on with the trip--which I left in Santiago, Chile. Was supposed to continue on with him for 2 more weeks into Patagonia--after figuring out what/why this happened [I've had an onion stomach allergy for 30 yrs--and told Intrepid this on the application sheet. Have been traveling with Intrepid and others for the past 15 years and never had a bout like this--but the Bolivians and Argentinians sneak onions into everything!!]I hope to see Patagonia--with Guido
