Luxury travel agent Black Tomato has launched a new “never-to-be-repeated” experience in Bolivia as part of its Blink collection of trips. First introduced a year or so ago, Blink is described as “the most personalised luxury travel experience imaginable
The concept combines sustainability with high-end transformational travel, taking guests into the wilderness with the support of an expert team. It also gives people the chance to be the architects of their own experience in that they can choose the kind of temporary accommodation they want to stay in (this goes far beyond glamping).
Black Tomato says: “From chic safari-style tents overlooking the Mekong River to lunar-like bubbles on the Bolivian Altiplano, with Blink you can craft your dream luxury tented accommodation with our guidance and experience. We’ve scoured the globe for some of the most remote and beautiful corners on the planet and based on your location and environment of choice we’ll then choose the most suitable tent structure for your Blink camp. Whether it’s a romantic and intimate camp for two or a luxury camp set up for your family group we’ll find the perfect fit and style to meet your needs.”
This month, it has announced a new opportunity in Bolivia, available for a limited time (in August and October 2018), for just a few travellers. Black Tomato has set up two types of temporary structures in secluded parts of the volcanic Eduardo Averoa Natural Reserve and the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. It says: “We’ve designed the camps as we would and are now thrilled to invite clients to experience our interpretation of Blink.”After arrival in La Paz, the world’s highest capital city, travellers will be taken on a six-night journey through the country with the option of taking a sunrise hot air balloon trip over the Uyuni salt flats, a trip to the Laguna Verde salt lake, meals under the stars and a private light aircraft flight over the Andes. In total it will cost $12,350 per person, excluding flights.
