Adventure and Sport in Bolivia

La Paz department is the department with the largest geographical diversity in Bolivia. The culture of La Paz department is marked by the Western world’s customs and the ancestral values of Aymara and Quechua peoples. The department also includes the Yungas region that goes down from the Cordillera, a magnificent region full of valleys and tropical lowlands. The Yungas region in Bolivia, is a kind of paradise on earth!

DAY 1

La Paz

A private driver will pick you up at the international airport of El Alto and drive you to your hotel in La Paz. Free time to enjoy the world’s highest capital. Maybe you can have a nice walk in the historical center, go handicraft shopping in the numerous stands of the Sagárnaga street, discover which artifacts are used for the offering ceremonies to Mother Earth ("Pachamama") in the Witches Market or even visit one of the various museums of the city… Or maybe you will prefer see the city from the air taking one of the three gondola lines of the capital? Night at the Naira hotel***. Read more

La Paz

Our driver will pick you up at 09:00 am at the hotel lobby. Today you will discover the most traditional side of the city, walking into the day-to-day life of the “paceños” (inhabitants of La Paz). You will first enter the indoor market of the Plaza San Francisco (Mercado Lanza) where many workers have breakfast. You will then take the cable car going up to El Alto and enjoy a unexpected view over the city and the mountains that surround it. You will fly over different neighborhoods and the general cemetery, in which you will then enter to discover the Andean post-mortem traditions: here the families leave elaborated offerings on the graves. Walking from the cemetery down to the historical center you will walk through the traditions of clothing and traditional celebrations of the city. Do you remember the “cholitas”, the women using traditional Andean clothing? In every street you will find an item of their outfit: skirt, heat, shoes, jewelry… nothing is missing! In the Los Andes Street you will feel like carnival is coming. It is the tailor’s street and every shop is filed with colorful costumes and masks. You will end our tour in the Witches Market (“Mercado de las Brujas”) where the locals buy all the necessary artifacts for ceremonial offering to the Pachamama (Mother Earth): coca leaves and other medicinal plants, miniature figurines in sugar and lama fetuses.

Driving down the meanding road, the scenery becomes greener, the air more humid, the wind warmer... it is a more than 3500 meters of elevation loss to reach Yolosa (el. 1100 m.a.s.l.) in just a few hours! The trip finishes with a steep, 7-kilometer uphill (650 m of elevation gain) up to the village of Coroico, the “pearl of the Yungas”. Return to La Paz at the end of the day.

LE MOIGNE Family, France

Un mois passé en Bolivie dont quelques jours au Sud Lipez avec Terra Andina. Personnel de Terra Andina très disponible, professionnel, compétent. Circuit très bien pensé, chauffeur expérimenté, très à l'écoute, tourné vers la nature, toujours soucieux de nous faire plaisir. Nous prenions les repas de midi au milieu de nulle part et Bernardo avait à coeur de sortir une petite nappe pour faire une "jolie table" ! Paysages à couper le souffle, contrées improbables Voyage conforme au programme N'hésitez pas, n'hésitez plus ! Confiez votre projet! Read more

Yves & Dominique, Belgium

Nous voici de retour d'un séjour au Chili/Bolivie/Argentine. Un peu plus de 3 semaines de découvertes en découvertes. Guides, chauffeurs, hôtels, location de voiture... le tout organisé par terra group. Dès que nous avions reçu le roadbook, nous savions que tout était bien organisé. Nous n'avons pas été déçu, la ponctualité et la précision étaient de mise pour des vacances en Amérique du Sud. Merci aussi à ceux dont on ne connait pas les noms et qui ont contribué à ce voyage incroyable. Vivement les prochaines vacances. Read more
