Puno: Uros and Taquile Islands Tour including lunch – Lake Titicaca, Peru

Titicaca Lake is the highest navigable lake in the world and its islands are home to several communities that keep their millenary culture alive.

EXPERIENCE

The tour begins with pickup from selected hotels in Puno and heads to the port where your speedboat adventure begins. Board your boat for the day and then head out on the water to discover the array of floating islands, populated by the ancestral Uros society. The people have built their homes upon the artificial islands on Titicaca lake which are made from a type of reed, the Totora plant.

As you sail around the islands, learn about the history, culture and traditions of the Uros people, and how their fascinating way of life thrives even in the modern day.

Then continue onto the island of Taquile, once part of the Inca Empire, where the remains of this incredible culture are still visible.
