Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 La Paz
Arrive at any time. Catch your breath before heading over to an English pub next to the hostel for a few cold ones with your fellow travellers. Get to know each other as you prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.

Day 2 La Paz/Sucre
Get to know La Paz with a free day to wander through the city's winding streets and vibrant markets before boarding a night bus to Sucre. (B)

Day 3 Sucre
Discover the beauty of Sucre, known as Bolivia's "White City" at your own pace with a free day to explore. Set in a valley surrounded by mountains, you can choose to go hiking or mountain biking to admire this city from a different point of view.

Day 4 Sucre
One day in Sucre isn't enough, so take another free day to explore! Try optional activities such as hiking, mountain biking, a visit to the Textile Cooperative, or get up close and personal with real dinosaur tracks. (B)

Day 5 Sucre/Potosí
Venture south to Potosí, the highest city of its size in the world.

Staying in the Bolivian highlands, we travel south to the city of Potosí. The highest city of its size in the world, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has had a tumultuous history as a silver mining centre during colonial times. (B)

Day 6 Potosí
Wake up, get out, and explore Potosí. Meander the streets, stop at the market and meet some locals! (B)

Day 7 Potosí/Uyuni
It's off to Uyuni today. Breathe in the beautiful scenery while relaxing in a private vehicle. Take it easy today because your next adventure is right around the corner! (B)

Day 8 Uyuni/Salt Flats and Desert Crossing
Embark on a three-day 4x4 excursion to the Salar de Uyuni. Get your camera ready because the endless white of the salt flats creates the perfect backdrop for mindbending photo ops. Take a guided walking tour to the top of the sacred Jukil mountaintop for sweeping valley views and a dinner prepared with local ingredients by local ladies. Settle in to your G Adventures-supported community salt-brick bungalow — complete with salt floors and salt furniture. (B, D)

Day 9 Salt Flats and Desert Crossing
Continue crossing the desert today, admiring the scenery while passing red and blue lagoons and intriguing rock formations along the route. Keep an eye out and you might spot wild llamas, alpacas, and even flamingos deep within the desert. (B, L, D)

Day 10 Salt Flats and Desert Crossing /San Pedro de Atacama
Get a head start on your day by rising early to cover more ground on your journey through the unique landscape of the Salar de Uyuni. Soak in the views of unimaginable scenery including volcanoes and salt lakes. Travel to the border then kick back and relax on your descent by bus to San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. (B, L)

Day 11 San Pedro de Atacama
Today is full of possibilities. Explore San Pedro de Atacama on a mountain bike, cruise down the dunes on a sandboard, or chill out in the hot springs. Or visit the Valley of the Moon, an area on Earth that resembles the moon's surface. (How cool is that?)

Day 12 San Pedro de Atacama/Salta
Say "Adios!" to Chile because you're heading to Argentina today. Relax on the bus en route to Salta, home to empanadas salteñas—and no visit to the town is complete without trying them! Unwind at the hotel or liven it up with a visit to a Peña Folklore show to dance the night away and sip delicious Argentine red wine.

Day 13 Salta
Tantalize your tastebuds with the local cuisine today as you explore freely. Choose to saddle up and admire the scenery on horseback. Or, if you'd prefer, take a visit to the town of Cafayate to roam vineyards and sample some of the white wine produced at insanely high altitudes. (B)

Day 14 Salta/Buenos Aires
Skip the long bus journey with a quick flight to Buenos Aires. Spend the afternoon exploring the city. Cruise around on a bike with a local or dine on a traditional Argentine meal while experiencing the art of the tango. (B)

Day 15 Buenos Aires
Depart at any time.

Consider booking post-tour accommodation to further explore fascinating Buenos Aires.
