Uros Floating Islands and Overnight at Taquile Island
In the morning, your private guide and driver will meet you at your hotel to take you to the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca.
We will visit the very unique Uros Floating Islands, which are built of only totora reeds, a water plant that grows in the lake. You will be amazed to see how the locals use the totora reeds to build their canoes, houses, beds and many other objects, necessary in their daily lives.
As part of your visit to Uros, you will ride on a totora reed canoe, which will let you experience a smooth and pleasant trip around the islands.
From here, we will continue on to Taquile Island via private motor boat. You will have the time to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery of Lake Titicaca for 2 hours.
We will arrive to the private Cultural Immersion Bay at Taquile Beach where you will enjoy a locally prepared lunch of delicious trout fresh out of Lake Titicaca.
After lunch, you have the choice to take a short hike to explore the island. Afterwards, we will serve you a locally cooked Peruvin dinner at your hut on the island where you will spend the night.
Amantani Island and return to Puno
Today, you will wake up to a locally cooked breakfast with an amazing view of the sunrise overlooking Lake Titicaca.
After breakfast, you will discover Taquile Island and learn about its pre-Incan constructions and agricultural terraces.
Get ready because we will take you on a 30 minute boat ride from Taquile island to Amantani Island. The specialities at Amantani island are textiles, weaving and ceramics. The life on this small island is rather simple but interesting as there are no hotels, cars and limited electricity.
You will enjoy a short walk around this island before having a tasty lunch in a traditional Amantanian restaurant.
After lunch, we will cross the lake and upon arrival to the shore we will take you back to your hotel in Puno.
