Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival Puno. Arrival transfer from Airport or bus station (Cusco is possible on request). In the afternoon we visit the ancient burial ground of Sillustani. The tombs are built above the ground and the inside of the tombs are shaped like a womb. The ancient Peruvian people believed that mother earth created and regulated life.

Day 2: Titicaca Lake. In the morning we take a boat trip on the highest navigable lake in the world, “Titicaca Lake.” Travelling by boat, begin by visiting the Floating Islands of Uros, where the friendly locals continue to practice their traditional way of life, living by fishing. Situated four km from Puno, the original inhabitants of these floating islands are said to descend from one of the most ancient peoples of the Americas. Their dwellings made of totora reed, are built on the surface of Titicaca Lake. Continue to Amantani Island, where you will have the chance to enjoy traditional local hospitality while taking in some incredible landscapes. The island is also home to some captivating archaeological sites including the temples of Pachatata and Pachamama. In the evening you will spend the night with a local family and experience first- hand the traditions and customs of this fascinating island. Lunch & dinner included.

Day 3: Titicaca Lake. After bidding a fond farewell to your host family, travel to the island of Taquile, a place where time appears to have stood still. Around 350 Quechua-speaking families live here, operating a collective agricultural system dating from the 14th Century. Renowned for textiles - beautifully woven chumpis (belts), chullos (caps), and ojotas (sandals), Taquile’s charm is further enhanced by the stunning landscape and outstanding views of the snow-capped Cordillera Real mountain range. From Taquile, board the boat once more to return to Puno where you will be transferred to your hotel.

Day 4: Departure from Puno. Tour ends after breakfast.

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
