DAY 1: PUNO - UROS - AMANTANI.
You will be picked up from your hotel around 7:30am and transferred to the port of Puno where you will meet your guide and board the motor boat. The first stop will be the Uros Floating Islands, where you will spend about 1.5-hour. There are more than 50 floating islands and you will visit two of them. On the first floating island, your guide will explain you about the people who live on the floating islands. Then you will have some free time to walk around, visit the small huts made from reeds, take some pictures and buy a souvenir to support the people of these islands if you wish. After this visit you will continue on with a 3-hour boat ride to Amantani Island where you will spend the night with a local family. You will be met by the families at the dock and then taken to their houses to enjoy a delicious lunch with them. In the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to go on an optional hike up to the highest point of this community which is located at about 4150m (13600 feet) to enjoy the sunset. There you can admire awe-inspiring views of Lake Titicaca, the Cordillera Real mountain range and the Isla del Sol on the Bolivian side of the lake in the distance. In the evening, after the dinner, the families will organize a local party for you and provide you the traditional dress to enjoy the party (optional). Take plenty of pictures of this crazy mix of locals and foreigners all decked-out laughing and dancing together. (lunch and dinner)
DAY 2: AMANTANI - TAQUILE - PUNO.
The next day you will have an early breakfast before saying goodbye to your family and heading over to the neighboring Taquile Island 1-hour boat ride. The people who live on this island are very famous because they are considered “the best weavers of Peru”. There, you will go on a beautiful hike to enjoy the views of the lake.
