What to expect ?

Lake Titicaca, straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes Mountains, is one of South America's largest lakes and the world’s highest navigable body of water. Said to be the birthplace of the Incas, it’s home to numerous ruins. Its waters are famously still and brightly reflective.

Itinerary

Around 06:45am pickup from your accommodation in Puno from where we take you to the local harbor where we board a small motorboat. First, we visit The Uros Floating Islands, a small community that lives on these reed Islands for decades. Long ago the Uros tribe conceived on the islands as a way to isolate and protect themselves from rival tribes. The Uros people built floating platforms, made reed houses and canoes, creating their little world. During our visit, we will learn about their lifestyle, traditions, as well as their beliefs. Additionally, we also take a short ride on a typical reed boat.


After strolling around the floating Islands, we continue our journey towards Taquile Island. Taquile is a traditional Quechua speaking community, located at the heart of the Lake Titicaca. Once at the harbor of Taquile, we will walk up along a narrow path to the center of the island. Along the way, we will enjoy stunning landscapes, including the Bolivian mountain range. As soon as we get to the top, our local guide will explain about traditional life on Taquile. Later on, you will have free time to walk around, and by noon we meet up for lunch at one local restaurant. Finally, we will descend to the harbor to take our boat back to Puno. Where we will arrive around 5pm
