The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

Arriving in Bolivia teams will spend a few days adjusting to the unique culture and high altitudes found in La Paz. Travelling overland to Sucre, teams can undertake an acclimatisation trek visiting the Managua crater and dinosaur footprints in Ninu Mayu. Staying in La Paz will provide the teams with a great chance to prepare themselves for their expedition.

Phase 2: Trek

The main trekking phase takes place in the high Andes of the Cordillera Real mountain range, following ancient Inca pathways at high altitude before dropping down into the cloud forest of the Yungas. Alternatively, teams can opt to explore the jungle lowlands of Sajama National Park, trekking past Guallatire; the only smoking volcano in the area. Combining jungle and high altitude plateaus in one trek is a really unique opportunity.

Phase 3: Project

This is the phase where teams assist in a variety of environmental or community based projects. Past examples include working in a local indigenous community, helping with caring for children in a day care centre and working on a frog re-homing project. Teams have also worked on sustainable agriculture projects, learning how to farm whilst protecting the environment. Renovations to schools and teaching are also tasks teams can get involved in.

Phase 4: Culture & Review

Teams can choose to take a boat trip on the beautiful Lake Titicaca and discover the Island of the Sun. Bartering for handicrafts at the Witches Market in La Paz and visiting the still working silver mine at Potosí are also a ‘must do’. Any trip to Bolivia would not be complete without exploring the stunning landscape of the salt flats near Uyuni.
