Navigate in the Great Titicaca LakeBOOK NOW
The Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the World at 3856 metres above sea level, it is bigger than Switzerland. Its shores and islands, such as Amantani and Taquile, are home to the Aymaras and Quechuas, who are amongst Peru's oldest peoples, predating the Incas by a thousand years. Here visitors may wander through old traditional villages where Spanish is a second language and where ancient myths and beliefs still hold true. Our program also includes the visit to the famous Uros Floating Islands. Our tour is led by a local guide who will introduce you its inhabitants and will explain about their history and traditions. Here we will take a nice ride on their little handmade reed boats around the floating villages.
This tour begins at 6:30am with a transfer from your Puno City Center hotel to the port. Then by motor boat (35 feet long with a covered section in case of rain or cold weather, 25 individual seats) you'll head out to the Uros floating Islands. Stepping on them feels very much like a water bed (but it is quite safe). You'll see the houses, the islands and meet its friendly inhabitants. Uros people are descendants of one of the oldest South American groups. Rides on traditional reed boats can be arranged for an additional fee (not included in tour cost). You'll visit two of the 60 islands before continuing on to Taquile Island. After a relaxed navigation of an extra 2 1/2 hours, getting the chance to enjoy the spectacular views offered by Lake Titicaca, you'll arrive to Taquile island. There, lives a unique community. A long path gradually ascending (45 min. hike approx.) will take you to the village, the views are beautiful. Visit the communal cooperative where you will find handicraft textiles of high quality. Have lunch on your own at one of the many local restaurants, before descending the 500 steps down to the main port of the island. At approximately 2:30pm. we'll depart back to Puno (3 hours return journey). At 5.30 pm we arrive to Puno. On arrival to Puno you'll be transferred back to your Puno hotel.
