Chile and Bolivia

High-altitude adventures in the Atacama and Altiplano


With an incredible diversity of terrain and endless off-road challenges, a journey through Chile and Bolivia takes in some of the most impressive mountain scenery on earth. 

Littered with volcanoes, lakes and geysers – this is one of the most unusual and beautiful places to drive on the planet. There is a reason why the Dakar Rally was held in this region for a decade – beyond the salt and the sand, the altitude will test even the most hardened adventurer!

With landscapes that range from Amazonian to Andean, from dense drizzling jungles to shimmering salt flats, jagged frozen glaciated peaks, to the vast Lake Titicaca, Bolivia rightly earns its nickname ‘The Tibet of the Americas’.

Here lies one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – the Salar de Uyuni – which has to be experienced to be understood. The world’s largest salt flats, stretching over 4000 square miles, create endless horizons and surreal perspectives for inspired minds to play. 

Experience the thrill of the world’s most dangerous road, the infamous La Carretera de los Yungos, which connects the Andes to the Amazon Rainforest. From here, join a luxury yacht that awaits to explore the rivers and jungle, teeming with incredible wildlife and inspiring tribal encounters. Or, routing south, head into the pristine natural frontiers of Patagonia and discover a vast world of alpine peaks, turquoise glaciated lakes, lush forests and dusty savannah.
