LAKE TITICACA TOUR ITINERARY

PUNO – UROS FLOATING ISLANDS – TAQUILE

The Lake Titicaca Tour starts at 6:30 am with a transfer from your hotel in Puno 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.

First, 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 can also ride on traditional reed boats and visit other islands.

From here, 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 some economic incomes from tourism.

Later, we enjoy our lunch at one of the local restaurants with a great view of the Titicaca Lake. Then, we descend 500 steps down to the main port of the island and sail back to Puno. Lake Titicaca Tour ends at 4.30 pm and transfer to your hotel in Puno.
