Lake Titicaca 2 Day Tour
Journey of two days and one night. With a boat trip on the Lake Titicaca you will visit the floating islands of Uros, Islands of Taquile and Amantani in order to experience the life of the indigenous communities and their ancestral forms of life. Also you will spend the night in a family accommodation of natives.
Day 1: Tour Uros Floating Islands and homestay on Amantani Island
You will be picked up from your hotel, or the bus station of Puno and go the harbor of Puno. Here we take a motor boat and go to the Floating islands of Uros. Once there you will have the opportunity to walk around on these very special reed islands and interact with the native who inhabit these islands. For a small fee you can make a ride on a handmade reed boat.
Then you continue by boat to Amantani Island. Here you will spend the rest of the day and the night. A group of native families will meet you on arrival and take you to their homes. Later in the afternoon after lunch, you can walk to the highest point of the island called Pachatata. From here you have an amazing view over the island and Lake Titicaca. The sunset viewed from here is something to remember forever.
Returning to your local family, you will have dinner with them. After dinner you are invited to a local party with a local band at the main folklore saloon. After the party you return to your homestay to sleep.
Day 2: Taquile Island and return to Puno
After your breakfast it is time to say goodbye to your local family. By boat you will go to Taquile Island which is full with ancient agricultural terraces. Upon arrival you will walk on a narrow path to the village of the island, meanwhile enjoying impressive views over Lake Titicaca and Amantani Island.
At the village you have some free time to explore on your own and have lunch in a local restaurant. Here the community speaks Quechua and has a waving tradition that dates back to early pre-Incan civilizations.
Later in the afternoon you will go back by boat to Puno where you will be brought back to your hotel.
