Overland Travel in Bolivia

Take your overland vehicle to Bolivia and you won’t regret it. Of South America it arguably has the largest variety of unique landscapes. Driving your rig across the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, and stopping anywhere for a night of camping under the stars is an experience you won’t forget.

Farther south stretch the Lagunas on an altitude averaging 4,000 meters. Here lies your best overland 4×4 adventure so be prepared. But Bolivia offers more, whether it’s the Ruta del Che where Che Guevara fought and died, or the tropical regions in the north.

Overlanding in Bolivia… travel hardly can get any better than this.

Blessing of the Land Cruiser in Copacabana (Bolivia)
