Ramblers Worldwide Holidays has added more options in South America with the reinstatement of a Falkland Islands and Chile itinerary and the return of Bolivia to the program. The first sold-out trip to the Falkland Islands has just returned and another, which is almost full, will run from November 5, leading in at £4,220pp.

 Product manager David Kay said Ramblers had last operated to the Falklands in 2003 and was persuaded to return by tourism officials.

“The Falkland Islands Tourist Office has really sharpened its game,” he said. Kay added he rated the Islands “far, far better, in my view, than the Galapagos” in terms of wildlife viewing.

The package includes return flights, half board, guides, excursions and a day trip to the Andes.

Tony Mason CEO of the Falkland Islands Tourist Board said he was really pleased to see such positive feedback and pointed out “Ramblers was very important to the Falkland Islands. We are looking forward to working with Ramblers to develop strong commercial ties that will last for many years.”

The Bolivia itinerary departs on June 21 and October 31 and takes in the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Ulyuni; plus Lake Titicaca and Sun and Moon Island, the birthplace of the Inca empire. The 14-day itinerary starts at £3,499pp and includes half- board plus some lunches.

Kay said the popularity of the Paris-Dakar rally, which this year ran through the country, was creating renewed interest in Bolivia.

    so ramblers worldwide, uh?
    lol
    and the islets plus bolivia...what a combination...

    now, for you ignorant bennys, the rally is basically an argentinian competition, it barely touches chile and bolivia.
    most of its route, and its start and finish are on argentinian soil, of course.
    do you have something similar in the islets?
    lol
