The history and culture of the Andes is more diverse than you might imagine. With the traditional indigenous communities of the Quechua and the Aymara, together with more recent arrivals of European and African settlers, Bolivia is a much more international country than it gives itself credit for. From ancient ceremonial sites to colonial architecture, from island societies on Lake Titicaca to the coca growing communities of the Yungas, there is enough cultural variety to make even the most well-travelled anthropologist's eyes light up.

With an experienced local guide to bring these places to life for you, this is the perfect opportunity to make best use of your acclimatisation time or to take it easy after a hard few days in the wilderness.
