Description of Adventure holiday in Bolivia

Our adventure holidays in Bolivia start as they mean to go on: on a high, and if you’re looking to take a couple of weeks exploring in and around the highlights of La Paz (11,000ft) in the company of a local guide, right here is where you put your best foot forward.

This is an ideal experience for couples and small groups looking to find out more about the traditions and lifestyles of indigenous Aymara communities as well as travelling by local transport on route to some of Bolivia’s most spectacular salt flats, including Salar de Uyuni.

Swapping bus and train for a 4x4 vehicle is what’s required to undertake the southern altiplano desert leg of this holiday with a series of lagoons, volcanoes, geysers and thermal springs providing the backdrop to an incredible unique and colourful adventure.

From time spent on and around Lake Titicaca to a scenic drive through the Cordillera Real mountain range, the highlights over the course of two weeks come thick and fast with boat rides to the islands of the Sun and Moon allowing for a couple of days rest alongside Inca enlightenment.

Culminating in Condoriri National Park for a four day hike ensures travellers are left in no uncertain terms as to Bolivia’s staggering natural beauty where remote llama herding communities continue to live as they always have under the shadow of snow-capped peaks and wheeling condors.

Responsible tourism: Adventure holiday in Bolivia

Environment

On our treks we minimize waste by using products with minimum packaging, leaving no litter and keeping all water sources clean, leaving camp-sites cleaner than we find them. Rubbish is carried out.

On this trekking holiday we ask that you bring your water bottle to be filled with drinking water in order to avoid buying plastic bottled water. The Leave No Trace guidelines are followed at campsites and along the trails and clean-ups along trek routes and local rivers are organized too. On treks reusable cloth bags are used for snacks instead of small plastic bags. Biodegradable soap and dishwashing liquid are used on trek.

At our offices, in the UK and La Paz we limit printing and recycle where possible.

Community

Our trek guides inform trekkers of local customs and culture and provide an insight into how these remote mountain communities survive.

For all of our treks we buy fresh local produce. In preference we choose local over imported goods, encouraging the use of local products in our cooking.

We are involved in the ongoing training of our trek staff. All our porters/donkey drivers are local to the areas we trek through. They carry a maximum 20kg load, and are provided with tents and food. We pay and treat our staff fairly.

Our Bolivian based partner is a Bolivian company that employs Bolivian personnel. The company pays a fair wage and invests a percentage of profits in community-based development and training.

Since 2006 we have been able to support the Huchuy Yachaq community project in the marginalised neighbourhood of Hermanos Ayar, on the outskirts of Cusco, with the help of everybody who has travelled with us. We donate USD 3000 a year to this community project.

The project has been set up by volunteer social workers and teachers to provide much needed social and educational support to the children and families of this neighbourhood. Children are encouraged to attend study and games sessions held each afternoon and participate in holiday projects. Our contributions so far have paid for educational books and games, tables and chairs, improvements to the structure of the basic community owned building and the addition of functioning toilets, materials for the children to take to school, school books, holiday programmes.
