La Paz

La Paz is the highest capital in the world, at an altitude of almost 12,000ft. This Andean capital is bustling, slightly chaotic, yet hugely interesting. It is a colourful and traditional city with a dramatic setting - surrounded by snow-capped volcanoes.
The best way to explore La Paz is slowly. At this altitude, there is not the oxygen to move fast, and wandering around at a leisurely pace you can appreciate the spectacle of traditionally-dressed locals going about their daily duties in the markets, plazas and winding streets.  However, saying that La Paz might well be the South America Activity capital with death defying bike rides, treks and horse riding.

Out and about in La Paz


Whilst in La Paz you can head to a witchcraft market , visit churches, explore the old town, taste traditional meals or venture outside of the capital into the mountains to explore this stunning landscape on foot as walking excursions, on bicycles or arrange to go horseriding.
