Private Journey

 

This holiday takes you to one of the most authentic regions of Latin America.  Travel from rainbow-hued gorges of northwest Argentina into remote southern Bolivia. The difficulty of access to the shattered landscapes there has resulted in the communities remaining isolated from changes and modernisation elsewhere. Here you will see smallholdings where subsistence level farmers eke out a living from their adobe farmhouses, and miners work long hours in primitive tunnels. It’s a privilege to be welcomed into their traditional way of life. 

That said, Potosí was once one of the largest and most affluent cities in the world: the silver mined in its conical hill contributed to the riches of the Spanish Empire and the Mint was located here. The city’s grand architecture reflects this long-gone prosperity. Buenos Aires, Salta and La Paz are all magnificent colonial cities, contrasting in size and style. Your holiday has many contrasts: the sophistication of Buenos Aires and the featureless, sparkling and sparsely populated Uyuni salt flats are worlds apart.
