Lake Titicaca Stopover

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 535

Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lake, a region where many subsistence framers make a living herding llama and alpaca at altitudes that leave North Americans gasping for air.


The world’s highest navigable lake is more than just one of South America’s natural wonders. It’s also home to the Uros people and several fascinating islands. Over 3 days, visit Taquille Island, renowned for its fine handwoven textiles and handicrafts. You’ll also explore Amantani Island, home of the Kantua, Peru’s national flower. While there are no hotels, running water or electricity, locals sometimes host travellers in exchange for simple gifts, allowing them to experience life as part of this unique agricultural community. On this trip however, you’ll return to comfortable accommodation on the lake shore before you depart.

Day 2

Full Day Uros and Amantani Islands with Lunch

The reed islands dotting Titicaca's surface are the Uros floating islands made of reed and named after the Indians who inhabited them. Legend has it the Uro Indians had black blood that helped them survive the frigid nights on the water and safeguarded them from drowning. The Indians who now inhabit this island - a mix of Uro, Aymara and Inca descendants - follow the Uro ways.

Amantani Island has opened its doors to outsiders who are willing to live for a few days as the Aymara-speaking islanders do -and that means sleeping on beds made of long hard reeds and eating potatoes for every meal. There is no running water or electricity and night-time temperatures drop to freezing even in the summer. But those happy to rough it catch a glimpse of an Andean agricultural community that has maintained the same traditions for centuries. Some Amantani residents live and die without ever leaving the island.

Prepared visitors usually bring gifts of fruit -a rarity on the isolated island and the socializing begins when a family member who speaks English offers a guided walk around the island, from where the views are something spectacular. Women wearing traditional black and white lace dresses pass by with slingshots in their hands to kill scavenging birds.
