Day 2 Cusco To Copacabana

Bolivia, you're in our sights. Filling up on breakfast, it's all eyes to the border as we make our way through Peru's spectacular Altiplano Plateau and over the border to Lake Titicaca, iconically the highest body of water in the world (and said to be the original birthplace of the Incas).Small, bright and enchanting, Copacabana sure as hell turns on the charm. Situated on Lake Titicaca's shores, this is more than just a place with sandy beaches and lakeside cafés. Opt for a cultural walk toward the Basilica of Our Lady Copacabana, or shop for local goods in its famous shopping street.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Estelar del Lago Titicaca (or similar)

Day 3 Copacabana To La Paz

Today we'll journey through the pretty Bolivian countryside towards La Paz. Situated a slightly unnerving 12,000 ft above sea level (yeah, for real), this city is big on altitude AND energy.If you're looking for vistas, La Paz is your gal. Sitting in the midst of a narrow canyon and dwarfed by the mighty icecapped peak of Mount Illimani to the South, this is a city of contrasts, where 19th century churches rub shoulders with towering office blocks and pretty, colourful markets. Take your time adjusting to the altitude, then make the most of your afternoon in this hustling, cosmopolitan city.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Gloria La Paz (or similar)

Day 4 La Paz

Cameras on full charge and free breakfast fully taken advantage of, it's time to hit the streets of La Paz. Your Trip Manager will take you on a guided walking tour where'll get to explore all that the city has to offer. Feel the cultural vibes by the San Francisco Church and Metropolitan Cathedral, before you make your way to the colourful Jaen Street and Plaza Murillo. And for those feeling ultra spiritual, the Witches' Market is only a short walk away.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Gloria La Paz (or similar)

Day 5 La Paz To Sucre

Adios La Paz, you've taken our breath away (quite literally).Steeped in history with narrow tree lined streets, white stone buildings (some dating back five centuries) and endless blue skies, Sucre is a place where time stands still. Get your bearings on a guided walking tour and let the impressive Convento de San Felip Neri work its magic on your inner architecture nerd. The afternoon is then yours to explore places like Cal Orck'o (did someone say real dinosaur footprints?), wander the cities various museums, or just take it easy before the evenings shenanigans.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel San Marino Royal (or similar)

Day 6 Sucre

With a full day in Sucre, the choice is yours of how to DIY your time in this cultural melting pot. Maybe the museums, galleries and parks are calling your name, or perhaps your itching for something a bit more physical? If that's the case, our ME Time Optionals are likely to be your jam - rock climbing or biking, anyone?

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel San Marino Royal (or similar)

Day 7 Sucre To Potosi

Think you've seen it all in the last few days? We've barely gotten started... Today we big adios to enchanting Sucre and make our way to Potosi, a town rich in history, architecture, and silver.Situated at the foot of Cerro Rico (Rich Mountain), Potosi is a treasure trove of markets, churches and friendly locals. We'll get you adjusted on a locally guided tour around the city, stopping off at the Cathedral Market to check out the local wares and visiting sites like the impressive Iglesia de San Lorenzo de Carangas. Later, head out with your crew for a traditional local dinner, washed down with Chuflay a plenty. Que bueno!

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Patrimonio Potosi (or similar)

Day 8 Potosi To Uyuni

Another lazy morning in Potosi, before making tracks for Uyuni, and we think you know what comes next...Welcome to Uyuni, the official gateway to the Salar de Uyuni...or the Bolivian salt flats to you and I. Excited much? You should be. To get you in the mood, we'll be heading to the Great Train Graveyard, which is every bit as incredible as it sounds. A place full of deserted steamtrains that were abandoned sometime in the 40s, if you're into deserted theme parks, ghost walks or general creepy stuff, you've found your mecca.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Samay Wasi Uyuni (or similar)

Day 9 Uyuni Incl Salar De Uyuni

Wanna know what makes a breathtaking photo? Well, let's just say that in Salar de Uyuni, every angle is picture perfect. We hope you've been researching the best poses and use of props, because this is one experience most only get to enjoy once in a lifetime.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Accommodations by Quechua Connection

Day 10 Uyuni To Avaroa National Reserve

It's goodbye mini bus and hello 4x4's as we kick start our 2 day expedition across the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna Reserve.Not much can beat yesterdays views, but this sure gives them a run for their money. Hot springs, geysers, volcanoes, mountains, lakes and flocks of flamingos will have your head spinning 360 as you try to take it all on. Nature on steroids is probably the best description.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Accommodations by Quechua Connection

Day 11 Avaroa National Reserve To San Pedro De Atacama

Can it really get any better? You ain't seen nothing yet. Up with the birds, we'll stop off first for some geyser spotting before journeying on to the Salvador Dali desert. And yes, it's every bit as impressive as the name suggests.Who's ready for a new country? Oh hi there, Chile! From one other worldly landscape to another, we'll venture into the Atacama desert with San Pedro de Atacama in our sights, our home for the next 2 nights. Feel the dryness in the air? That's because this land is the driest non-polar desert in the world. Don't say we don't try to impress you.

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Diego de Almagro San Pedro de Atacama (or similar)

Day 12 San Pedro De Atacama

After two days of crossing the Avaroa reserve, it's time to chill, and that poolside seat has your name all over it. But then again with sandboarding on offer, maybe the lure of the desert will be too hard to resist? As the afternoon rolls in we'll head out to Valle de la Luna. Literally translated as the Valley of the Moon, this lunar like landscape was carved by wind and water and is the probably the closest you'll ever get to a space travel experience. Seriously, can this trip get any better?

Duration: 1 Day

Accommodation: Hotel Diego de Almagro San Pedro de Atacama (or similar)

Day 13 San Pedro De Atecama To Santiago De Chile
