LAKE TITICACA TOUR ITINERARY

The Lake Titicaca Uros Taquile Floating Islands Tour 1 day starts at 6:30 am with a transfer from your Puno hotel to the port. Then, we will continue by motorized boat to the famous floating island of Uros. Once there, we will walk on the spongy reed islands, visiting the homes of native Uros inhabitants. The Uros tribes are direct descendants of one of the oldest South American Civilizations. Our expert local guide will give us an explanation about how the Uros people make their home islands from one of the lake reeds, and how they forge a subsistent lifestyle floating in the middle of Lake Titicaca. And for an intimate experience, we will be offered to ride on traditional reed boats and visit other islands. We will take a two-hour boat excursion to the Quechuan islands of Taquile. Once we get there, we will take a short walk following the stone pathway to reach the islands’ highest peak. Our local guide will take us to the village where we will spend time with local families. Spending time with locals not only gives us an insight into their culture and lifestyle but also ensures that the families receive the full financial benefits from tourism. Later on, we enjoy our lunch at one of the many local restaurants with a great view of the Titicaca Lake. Then, we descend 500 steps down to the main port of the island and transported back to Puno. We will arrive at 5.30pm, and transfer to your Puno hotel.
