Land-locked Bolivia offers a look at traditional Andean South America. Travel to Bolivia allows you to discover this region's authentic culture whilst also exploring the superlatives associated with this activity and adventure holiday hotspot.

The high-altitude capital La Paz is a bustling, colourful city that'll take your breath away; Cochabamba is a large market town with along tradition of local culture and folklore; colonial cities including Potosi and Sucre provide a look at the Spanish influence and architecture left by the conquistadores.

Natural wonders include Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake, which contains the Islas del Sol and Islas de la Luna, the setting for the Incas creation myths. The towns of Copacabana and Sorata nearby are popular with hikers.

Those looking for walking holidays in Bolivia should also head to the Cordillera Apolobamba to escape the crowds and explore these spectacular peaks.

Elsewhere, the stunning lakes of Laguna Colorada and Laguna Verde, the former of which is home to flocks of flamingos, are worth the trek to see. Those in search of wildlife holidays in Bolivia ought to travel to Parque Nacional Madidi or Rio Mamoré, whilst the town of Rurrenabaque is a good base for exploring the rainforest and spotting Amazonian wildlife including river dolphins.

The surreal expanses of the Salar de Uyuni saltpan are dotted with piles of salt and spiky cacti; they are best explored by 4wd from the village of Uyuni.
