Llévame contigo Contiki! The youth tour operator is spreading its Latina wings with the addition of two new Latin American countries to its 2018/19 itineraries.

For the first time, Contiki and its groups of adventurous, young explorers will travel to Bolivia and Chile on three new itineraries taking in local sights, sounds and spices.

Among the itineraries is the 14-night Bolivian Magic trip covering four countries – Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina – and featuring awe-inspiring Incan Ruins, the colonial beauty of Salta, heady Bolivian salt flats, and bubbling hot springs and colourful flamingos.

Bolivia Contiki

Sand boarding in the Atacama Desert and Bolivia’s charm and beauty encompasses the 12-night Bella Bolivia itinerary, while the Andean Crossing will see Latin lovers indulge in Lima’s rich history and vibrant food scene before seeing the Bolivian sights.

Katrina Barry, Contiki Australia’s Managing Director said Bolivia was a “natural next step” for the operator as it borders and connects with existing destinations in the Contiki portfolio, thus allowing travellers to extend their trips throughout the region.

“It’s an incredible destination that provides unforgettable experiences for our travellers – whether they’re after cities, culture, or out-of-this world landscapes and scenery.”
