Andes & Amazon between Cuzco and La Paz via Bolivia in depth
OR VICE
VERSA

OVERVIEW

20 days between Cuzco and La Paz or vice versa...

Overlanding is the best way to see South America by far! Dragoman have been leading the way in South American overland expeditions since 1990, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading to some unique hidden gems, well away from the usual tourist trail. This comprehensive in-depth trip will take you through many of the highlights and hidden gems of one of our favourite South American countries - Bolivia! As well as visiting the must-see destinations of the stunning Lake Titicaca, the hectic city of La Paz, and of course the phenomenal salt plains of Salar de Uyuni, we will also head to some lesser-visited areas such as the charming colonial town of Sucre, the mysterious pre-Inca ruins of Tiwanaku, and an exciting 3-night adventure into the Bolivian Amazon near Rurrenabaque! An unforgettable trip that also heads into Peru and the incredible city of Cuzco, this is the perfect journey for those that want to explore a little deeper in this incredible country!
