Things to See and Do

The spectacular scenery across the Southwest means that the attractions are widespread, and varied. The area’s biggest tourist pull is the other-worldly salt flats of Salar de Uyuni, and the surrounding volcanoes and psychedelic lakes in and around Parque Nacional Eduardo Abaroa. More off the beaten track is the arid Parque Nacional Sajama, will impressive flora, fauna and vistas, plus Bolivia’s highest peak, but fewer visitors. The city of Oruro is the biggest settlement on the Altiplano and venue for Bolivia’s biggest festival – Oruro Carnival.

In the south of the region, the red sands of Tupiza lend their hand to wild-west style horseback adventures, where visitors can follow the trail of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  In Tarija you can visit the world’s highest vineyards in the Valle de La Conepción, or explore the highlands and valleys of the Reserva Biológica Cordillera de Sama.
