Details of Day Tours


After breakfast at your hotel located in the city of Puno, you will be transferred to the lake port, where a speedboat or a regular boat (depending on your choice) will take you to the floating islands of the Uros.

 

The Uros Islands are located 4 miles northwest of the city and they are an ancestral society that populate a series of artificial islands built on the basis of the totora reed, which grows in the same lake. The reed islands are made by weaving these material in the places where it grows thicker and forming a natural layer. The Uros people built their houses of totora too and cook outdoors to prevent possible fires.

 

The Lake Titicaca is located between Peru and Bolivia at 3,812 meters above sea level within the Andean highlands or Collao Plateau, and it is the highest navigable lake in the world and the second one in South America. We are going to spend an amazing time with the local people. They will show to us their lifestyle and traditions, with more than 200 families living here. At this point, the half day tour at the Uros Islands ends.

 

If you chose the full day tour, we will take the boat for a travel of one hour and a half, to the island of Taquile. This is Quechua, unlike the other Aymara speaking islands on the lake. It was part of the Inca empire and vestiges of this culture can still be seen in its constructions.

 

This is the second largest island located in the Lake Titicaca with an extension of 3.4 miles. Their textiles are amazing and they are being considered as a heritage by UNESCO. The highest point gets 4,050 meters above sea level.

 

Later, we will enjoy a delicious Andean lunch, and then, we will return to the port of Puno, where our transport will be waiting to take you to your hotel.
