Puno and Lake Titicaca

FROM $1,499 PER PERSON | 4 DAYS | $374 PER DAY

This pre-trip extension whisks you away to El Lago Titicaca, South America’s largest body of freshwater. Situated high on the Andean plateau between Peru and Bolivia, this lake will literally take your breath away. Discover the Peruvian waterside town of Puno, where various cultures have left their mark.

Here, it’s as if time is at a stand-still. Just as they did hundreds of years ago, the Uros people maintain their crops by hand and live in man-made floating islands. Witness the ancient traditions of this indigenous people amidst remarkable scenery. We’ll visit markets, explore archaeological sites, and float around the famous isles. You may even get to see llamas as you journey through this incomparable slice of Peru.

The Uros people of Lake Titicaca, floating islands exploration

Today’s excursion will introduce you to the Uros people, an ancient tribe who live on man-made islands in the middle of Lake Titicaca. 

Board traditional reed boats for a sail around Lake Titicaca and its islands. You’ll learn about the Uros tribe and how — after the Incan civilization enclosed on their lands — its people made their homes on these islands.

Bring your camera to capture these bizarre landscapes and spectacular vistas of the surrounding lake.

Next, we’ll stop in the small town of Hatun Qolla. Here, we’ll be welcomed into locals’ homes to learn about their lifestyle and agricultural techniques. Along the way, you’ll meet some adorable llamas and alpacas. Just don’t get too close, as they do spit!
