Video of the Tour

Head out to the highest lake on planet Earth on a day trip that covers the Floating Islands of the Uros (Islas Uros) and Isla Taquile (Isla Taquile) on Lake Titicaca. You’ll get a glimpse of local life as you travel between the inhabited islands, which are made entirely of reeds, and benefit from your guide’s insider knowledge.

SEE HOW IT IS



THE MOST OUTSTANDING:

  • Delve into the unique culture of the island of Uros and Taquile on a day trip
  • Escape the crowds on land as you cruise to the islands by boat
  • Enjoy a combination of guided tours and free time.
  • Lunch and round-trip hotel transfers are included.
Day 01
Puno | uros islands | taquile island | Puno

Our Titicaca adventure begins at 7:30 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel in Puno and head to the port. Then we will take a comfortable motor boat to the floating islands of the Uros town. The artificial islands are located about 14 km from the port and it takes about 30 minutes to get there, but you won’t be in a rush as the scenery is spectacular.

When we get to the floating islands, you’ll probably be amazed at the scale of these floating reed constructions. The Uros originally built these islands for defensive reasons: if a threat appeared, they could move their island homes to a safer location. The islands are made from the reed reeds that grow around the lake, and each island is in a constant state of rebuilding as old reeds are replaced with new ones.

Entering the islands is quite an experience, as the resilient reed floor feels strange underfoot. We will explore the main island and see the houses, watchtowers and other structures, all built from reeds. Then one of the locals will give a short presentation on how the islands are made, and then you can meet one of the local families to see how they live.
Next, we will board the boat to the wonderful island of Taquile, which is approximately 1.5 hours away. We will arrive at a secluded and picturesque section of the island of Taquile, which also has a virgin sandy beach where we can stretch our legs for a while. From where we will depart to explore this incredibly beautiful island for at least four hours. We will go to the less touristy northern area, where we will have spectacular panoramic views of Lake Titicaca. After relaxing here for a while, we will hike a pre-Inca trail, visiting families of weavers to learn about their textile art and the rich symbolism that decorates their textiles. After a traditional lunch at a local restaurant, the quinoa soup and grilled trout are particularly popular. After lunch we will go back to Puno. Approximate time of end of the activity 16:30 PM.
