Bolivia Tours Explore La Paz

La Paz, a capital that will take your breath away with its exotic and exciting culture

La Paz is the world’s highest administrative capital in the world situated at 3,500m above sea level. The city is bustling with activity, its inhabitants constantly on the move but visitors should be careful to not imitate locals as altitude sickness is a very tangible issue. Travellers should make sure to take a couple of days to acclimatise before rushing into doing too many activities.

The city is a mix of new, shiny buildings and colonial architecture. The Teleferico is an amazing way to see the city from up high and witness the sights all in one go.

    Our Favourite Experiences

    • Moon Valley Tour

      Wander through the Moon Valley

      The Valle de la Luna is an eerie landscape on the outskirts of La Paz that has been eroded over the years leading to its current formation of jagged sandstone and rocks that jut out of the hillside. These formations have led to the creation of a strange sight in the middle of the desert. There are two different treks available here that take you through the maze of rocks to appreciate the otherworldliness of the place. It is truly reminiscent of a place out of a movie set and visitors should make sure to bring their camera to capture the sight forever. 

    • Hike Cordillera Real

      Hike the length of Cordillera Real

      The Cordillera Real also known as the ‘Royal Range’ is the longest mountain range in Bolivia stretching out across 5000m with over 600 peaks. It is the ideal place for professional climbers and novices alike to try their hands at climbing. The range offers a large variety of different treks and routes for all levels. Travellers looking for slightly more adrenaline pumping activities can also try their hand at bike riding across the mountain range. Views from the top are truly spectacular and worth the effort to get there. 

    • Cycle Yungas Road

      Defy death on the Yungas Road

      The Yungas Road, also known as the Death Road is an adrenaline packed activity where travellers ride a mountain bike along the ‘most dangerous road in the world’. A high-octane activity along lush greenery in the middle of a cloud forest. The roads are slippery and there is the occasional vehicle that still uses the road so safety and caution are important. Nevertheless, the road will  leave your heart pumping out of your chest and wanting for more. 

    • Coroico

      Fly to the sky in Coroico

      Coroico is a small town located nearby La Paz that is known for its large number of activities on offer, particularly its high-intensity ones. Bolivia’s best zip line experience is found here. Named Zzip and located 350 meters above the ground, participants fly through lush vegetation and forest for a circuit of 1,500 meters. For those who prefer more sedate activities, there are a large number of waterfalls in Coroico which make for the perfect daytime excursion. 

    • Visit Witch Market

      Browse the wares at the Witch Market

      Known by locals as the Mercado de Hechiceria, the witch market is a fascinating look into the Aymara culture and their history of herbal medicine. The market stalls are full of colourful spices and herbs that are said to cure a number of ailments from small colds to warding off the devil. Indigenous traditional healers can also be found amongst the stalls and they will be able to guide you and offer cures for illnesses or talismans to protect you from ill will. 

    • La Paz Teleferico

      Travel around the Mi Teleferico
