Bolivia: Flooded Salar de Uyuni – A Wet Season Mirror (7 Days)

There are few places in this world where we go to time and time again, year after year, and never get tired of it. That place is the Salar de Uyuni when it is flooded! If there ever was a natural spectacle that merits an award, an applause or a bow from us, it is when the world’s largest salt flat floods for about four months every year. The rainy season in Bolivia is from December to March and that is when Bolivia gets their rain – and specifically the Bolivian highlands get their snow – which causes flooding on the Altiplano.    ...

Bolivia: Altiplano Salt Flats, Volcanoes & Badlands – 14 Days

This adventurous 4×4 overland photo workshop is designed to get into the heart and soul of the Bolivian Altiplano, focusing on the wild south-western corner. Thus, we will be spending most of our time within the regions of the Salar de Uyuni and south, deep in the Sud Lipez region and then east towards the badlands of Tupiza. These places will leave you breathless – not only due to the beauty, but the altitude as well. In order to acclimatize properly we will make our way south, gaining altitude slowly, while visiting surreal locations. The...

Bolivia: Apolobamba – The Kallawaya Trail (12 Days)

Bolivia: Apolobamba – The Kallawaya Trail (12 Days)

There are countless of locations in the Bolivian highlands that merit a visit. In our opinion one of the most impressive and least-visited regions in Bolivia is the remote Apolobamba Range in western Bolivia, north of Lake Titicaca, straddling the Peruvian border. The Apolobamba is a long way from the tourist route thus we cannot count on suitable accommodations near our prime locations, so we will spend some of the tour days camping, but that is a blessing as the locations we are headed to should be in great shape and not overrun with...

Peru: The Cordillera Huayhuash Photo Trek (13 Days)

In this world there are a few places that stand head and shoulders above others – even with the outstanding choices people already know about in other ranges across the world. The Cordillera Huayhuash in Central Peru (just south of the Cordillera Blanca) is one of those places that will leave you breathless, not only due to the altitude but because the scenery is so grand, so imposing, so…unbelieveable. If the Lord of the Rings wasn’t filmed in New Zealand (which it rightly deserves), it could have been filmed here. Every day on the trek is...

New Zealand: The Wildscapes of the South Island (14 Days)

There is a reason New Zealand sits at the top of many people’s “short list” as a place to go at least once before they pass from this earth – it’s mind-blowing, heart-stopping and smile-making spectacular! The southern Island of New Zealand is like no other place on earth. It is wild, it is rugged, it is convoluted and it’s absolutely spectacular – from the perilous seacoast, through the temperate rainforest to the expansive hinterlands and to the top of the imposing and glacier-covered Southern Alps. There is a very good reason The Lord of...
