Bolivia - Oasis Highlights

Oasis Highlights of Bolivia

The highest, poorest and most remote country in the America yet arguably the most exciting! Bolivia boasts a wealth of riches from ancient ruins to colonial gems, steamy rainforest to high Andean lagoons. After many heated discussions, our “must visit” Oasis highlights are as follows:

Island of the Sun
Bolivia’s Isla del Sol has long been a tourist favourite, a fascinating island steeped in myth and tradition surrounded by the glistening waters of Lake Titicaca. Yet, the standard daytrips on offer do not even begin to do the island justice. Stay a couple of nights and you can explore ancient inca trails through traditional villages and crumbling ruins to spectacular viewpoints overlooking the snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Real. 

The Madidi National Park
Lush cloud-forest, cascading waterfalls and mountains which tumble into the steamy Amazon, the Madidi National Park is the most bio-diverse reserve on earth. Yes, it is remote – a hopper flight to Rurrenabaque followed by a 5 hour boat trip up the Beni and Tuichi Rivers – yet isolated lodges offer arguably the finest wildlife experience in the entire Amazon, perfect for nature lovers!

The Salar de Uyuni Circuit
In our opinion, the Salar de Uyuni salt-lake is the most breathtaking natural site in South America, a dazzling expanse of white dotted with cactus-cloaked islands that beggars belief. And if that wasn’t enough, the surrounding altiplano harbours volcanoes, hotsprings, geysers and a series of multi-coloured lakes that straddle the border with Chile. Tour Bolivia’s southern altiplano by jeep, and you could be on another planet, a photographer’s paradise!      

Sucre
Travel through Bolivia and you become accustomed to long bumpy journeys, cluttered towns and the ever present altitude. Yet Sucre is the exception, a beautiful colonial treasure and UNESCO world heritage site that bucks the trend. At 2800m above sea-level, the city is a good 500m lower than La Paz and wonderful spot for catching your breath. Explore the museums and historic churches or simple potter through the cobbled streets amidst white-washed mansions, lofty spires and crumbling colonial facades.
