Our Home IN Bolivia
The fifth chapter of our South America expedition takes us to La Paz, the highest capital in the world at 12,000 ft / 3,600 m.
We have room for 15 people, staying in two large villas, just a 3-minute walk apart. They come equipped with plenty of space for work and play. Our house is located 25 minutes out of the busy city of La Paz and sits in a valley surrounded by mountains.
There's a billiard and foosball table, and lots of open space in the garden to catch some sun. Last year, to disconnect from a productive day of work, we would hike the fascinating landscape, set up a volleyball game in the garden, or explore the city of La Paz. We had home-made pizza in our dirt oven, lots of local home-cooked meals, and hosted big BBQ parties at the house. There's even a paintball pitch just around the corner, and ATV (quad-bike) rentals 10 just minutes away.
And here's a map to get an idea of where we'll be!
Adventures + Things To Do In Bolivia
We love Bolivia because it is still an under-explored country that hasn't been remodelled by tourism. While there are heaps of incredible things to do, the cultural experience is as authentic as it gets and the adventures are raw...
Explore Salar de Unyuni
The Salar is the worlds largest salt flat, left behind by a prehistoric ocean. It's so large that after about an hour of driving, you will yourself surrounded by nothing but endless white against a dark blue sky. Many people travel to Bolivia just for this wonder of nature and to take those surreal pictures that mess with perception of size.
Wander into the Jungle
From the jungle town of Rurrenabaque, where everything moves on motorbikes, you can take a three-day boat tour deep into the jungle. You'll see alligators, turtles, monkeys, tropical birds, giant guinea pigs, catch piranhas, swim with river dolphins, and search for anacondas.
Hit the 'Death Road'
Starting at the high-altitude summit two hours from La Paz, a mountain bike expert guides us down into the jungle for 40 miles (64 km) on a narrow, winding road carved into the mountainside.
Sail On Top of the World
Let's cruise the world's highest navigable body of water – 12,500 feet above sea level. Explore Inca ruins, trek the Isla del Sol, set up your tent, build a campfire and sleep under a billion stars, with clear sight of the Milky Way galaxy.
Conquer MOunt Illimani
Rent quad bikes or a 4-by-4 jeep and we'll drive through deep canyons, dramatic mountains, and terraced farmlands, until we reach the iconic mountain that we see from La Paz with its impressive peaks.
Get Lost in Sucre
With it's whitewashed colonial buildings, Sucre is arguably Bolivia's most beautiful city. It's also one of the few countries with two recognised capitals, La Paz and Sucre.
