Wilderness Journeys’ new Bolivian trekking adventure offers travellers an unforgettable nature-filled experience. Starting on the shores of Lake Titicaca, a seven-day trek crosses the Andes’ spine, populated by the indigenous Aymara and Quechua cultures.
After a day’s rest the journey continues deep into the Amazon jungle, spending five days on foot and in a dug-out canoe with the chance to see spectacular wildlife from caimans to river dolphins in the Madidi National Park.
A motorised canoe journey leads to the community-owned San Miguel de Bala Lodge, which supports wildlife conservation, with more chances to explore the rainforest through day and night canoe and walking trips.
Departing July 22nd, ‘Trekking Bolivia – Andes to Amazon’ costs Â£1,845 per person, including 20 nights’ accommodation (lodges and camping), most meals, full trekking service, local guiding, internal flights, transfers, transport within Bolivia and park fees.
The trip is graded moderate and excludes international flights, though these can be arranged. Head over to Wilderness Journeys for more information.
