Details of Day Tours


Day 1: Uros Islands and Amantani Island

After picking you up from your hotel in the city of Puno, our transportation will take you to the Puno port where the professional kayak team is located, initiating a 2-day adventure on the breathtaking Lake Titicaca.

Lake Titicaca sits at an elevation of 3,800 meters above sea level, earning its title as the highest navigable lake of the world. The kayak journey lasts around 1 hour and 20 minutes. Along the way, you`ll be able to admire the beautiful Puno bay and the stunning flora and fauna that surround it.

We will arrive at the floating island of Uros, a collection of handmade artificial islands located in the high-altitude region of the Andes. These islands are the home of the indigenous Uro community, who have constructed and inhabited these floating structures for centuries.

The islands are primarily made from totora, an aquatic plant that thrives abundantly in the lake. The Uros use these plants to build the islands, houses, boats, and various objects for their daily lives.

After visiting the Uros Islands, we will depart on a regular boat to Amantani Island. Upon arrival, you will settle into the assigned host family house for the night. You will enjoy a typical Andean lunch consisting of quinoa soup and lake fish, along with comforting coca tea.

Amantani is renowned as a popular destination for tourists seeking to experience life in local communities. The majority of population of Amantani is of indigenous Quechua descent and has preserved many of their ancestral traditions.

The island offers a panoramic view of Lake Titicaca and the surrounding mountains, making it a beautiful and tranquil place to explore. One of the most iconic spots is Pachatata, a viewpoint atop a hill that offers spectacular views of the lake and its surroundings.

In the evening, we will have dinner and enjoy a lively local party organized by the community.

 

Day 2: Taquile Island and Return to Puno

Start your day with an early morning breakfast before we depart to Taquile Island by regular boat. The journey across the stunning Lake Titicaca takes about an hour.

Upon arrival on the island, you will walk to the small yet charming main square. Here, you can visit the local museum (optional) or explore wonderful textile shops.

Taquile Island is known for its rich cultural heritage and impressive landscapes. The indigenous community here has upheld ancestral traditions and sustainable ways of life. The people of Taquile are renowned for their expertise in creating high-quality textiles, which are considered invaluable heritage.

The inhabitants are master weavers, crafting textiles by hand using techniques passed down through generations. These textiles are artistic and cultural expressions, featuring patterns and colors that reflect Andean Cosmo vision and the community history. Each piece tells a story and can communicate the social status wearer, gender, and identity.

You will have lunch at a local restaurant and then take the regular boat back to the Puno port. Our transportation will take you back to the hotel.
