Why would you consider Bolivia, a land-locked country streching over the South American high plateau, for an adventure trip? Simply put, because the Bolivian Amazon rainforest is where you can experience wilderness in its purest and most 'dangerous' form. Also because rambling through the witches market in frenetic La Paz is an adventure in itself. Bolivia is probably the least-traveled South American country, but it is definitely one of the most fascinating destination for thrill seekers. This 'Bolivia Adventure' starts off in La Paz, the world's highest capital, where you will discover a bustling city with a vibrant culture. In Rurrenabaque learn about Tacana cosmovision and explore the nearby jungle paradise inside the Madidi National Park, home to jaguars and caimans. To top off this adventure-packed journey, you will bike down the scary 'Death Road' in the yungas region, yet another unforgettable and thrilling experience. If adventure is what you are looking for, tick off your bucket-list entry and join a 'Bolivia Adventure' tour.

Weather conditions in the Amazon rainforest vary greatly depending on the two seasons: the wet season from December to May and the dry season from June until November. Regardless of the season, you have to be prepared for rain throughout the year, although it rains a lot less during the dry season. Both seasons provide amazing experiences with plenty of birds, wildlife and flora to see. 

We recommend avoiding travel to the Amazon from December to February.
