taming the wild

 

atacama Your dedicated guide will take you by four-wheel drive past intriguing formations of stone forests and the barren valley of Salvador Dalí Desert. The scenery here is reminiscent of his surrealist paintings. See Licancabur volcano mirrored in the emerald waters of Laguna Verde. From the savage beauty of the Salar de Uyuni to the flamingo-filled Laguna Colorada, time disappears when you step inside this otherworldly landscape.

 

 

 

salt flatsOut on the bright-white expanse of the salt flats you will have a private photoshoot with renowned Bolivian artist, Gaston Ugalde. The vast horizons can play tricks on the eye, creating the possibility for some weird and wonderful imagery on this unique terrain. You will also get a rare opportunity to take-off directly from the salt flats for a flight over the incredible volcanic scenery.

 

 

 

lake titicacaStay on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the birthplace of the Incas. Kayak around the floating reed archipelago of Islas Uros and discover how the lives of the indigenous people are, quite literally, weaved together by totora reeds.

 

 

 

 

 

la pazHidden in a valley fringed by towering Andean peaks, La Paz is one of South America’s most eclectic cities. Explore the hustle and bustle of street life, full of an amalgam of cultures and customs. With the protective spirits of the mountains watching over you, you can see why this region is at the sacred heart of indigenous culture.
