Get off the tourist trail on this extraordinary adventure through Bolivia and Argentina. Uncover the rural history of Potosi, explore the cities of La Paz and Sucre, and travel across the sprawling landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni before arriving in vibrant Buenos Aires. There are plenty of thrills to be found in Salta or, for those seeking a more relaxed place, simply indulge in wine tasting in Mendoza. This overland tour really does have it all.
TRIP CHANGES FOR 2017:
There will be a minor improvement to the Discover Bolivia & Argentina itinerary in 2017.
In order to improve our trips we regularly review feedback from past travellers and our local operations team. Most of our travellers tell us that they want more time to explore Argentina's capital, so we've made a decision to fly from Mendoza to Buenos Aires on the afternoon of Day 17, instead of the morning of Day 18.
The 2017 itinerary will operate as follows:
Day 1 La Paz
Day 2 La Paz/Overnight Bus
Day 3-5 Sucre
Day 6 Potosi
Day 7 Uyuni Town
Day 8 Salar de Uyuni
Day 9 Bolivian Altiplano
Day 10-11 San Pedro de Atacama
Day 12 Salta
Day 13-14 Salta/Overnight Bus
Day 15-16 Mendoza
Day 17-20 Buenos Aires
From diverse landscapes to deep-rooted cultures and contrasting destinations, this trip covers a lot of ground across South America in a relatively short period of time
La Paz provides insight into the many sides of Bolivian culture. While young people flock to the city for its booming industry, traditionally dressed residents sell ancient potions at the Witches’ Market
Enjoy free time to discover the elegant colonial architecture and immaculately landscaped gardens of historical Sucre
The landscapes of Salar de Uyuni are so unique they’re almost extra-terrestrial. Embark on a three-day adventure via 4WD across the rocky Atacama Desert and the largest salt lakes in the world - passing cactus islands, train cemeteries and mineral lakes teeming with flamingos
Stay in the heart of Argentina’s most famous wine region, Mendoza. Enjoy easy access to local cellar doors, where you can refine your palate by tasting signature varieties of Malbec
The last stop of the trip gives you a couple of days to get under the skin of Buenos Aires. With its eclectic neighbourhoods, emphasis on food and wine and huge theatre scene, this is the perfect way to end your adventure
