Our full day trip starts around 09h00 when we pick you up from your hotel in Puno. Then we will go to the port and board our comfortable motorboat to travel to the island of Uros.
We will visit the incredible floating islands of the Uros people. When we get to the floating islands, you will 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 totora reeds that grow around the lake, and each island is in a constant state of rebuilding as old reeds are replaced by new ones.
Entering the islands is quite an experience, as the elastic reed floor feels strange under your feet. We will explore the main island and see the houses, watchtowers and other structures, all built with 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.
After visiting the Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca, we will return to Puno, where we will take you to your hotel.
