PUNO

Full day visiting Uros and then Amantani. Overnight with local families w/lunch (8 HRS)

In the morning you will be picked up from the port of Puno and taken to the floating islands of Uros. The Uros are an ancient culture that inhabits a series of artificial islands built on the basis of reeds growing in the lake itself. These are constructed by weaving reed in the areas where it grows thicker and thus forming a natural layer. On it, they build their houses and cook outdoors in order to prevent fires. After a journey of an hour and a half, you will reach Amantaní, a circular island 3.4 kilometres in diameter on average. The people have maintained their identity and highland customs and have attracted the attention of the tourist industry through living experiences. At Amantaní you will be welcomed by the inhabitants and put up in one of their homes that have been prepared to receive visitors.

*This is a shared service but with a private guide who will stay with you the whole time.

  • Overnight in Amantani with local families.

PUNO

Full day returning to Puno visiting Taquile w/lunch (8HRS)

After breakfast with the locals, you will set off by boat from Amantaní to the island of Taquile. In contrast to the other islands in the lake, where the people speak Aimara, here they speak Quechua. It was part of the Inca Empire and vestiges of that culture can still be seen in their buildings. However, the Spanish also came here, forbade them from wearing their traditional costumes and forced them to use peasant dress. When you arrive you will be given a short description of the island and a tour around it before lunch. After lunch, you will go to the harbour for the trip back to Puno.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Comfortable and light clothing is the most convenient choice for traveling on Peru’s coast, while warmer clothes are best for stays in the highlands. Passengers must not wear sleeveless T-shirts, shorts, miniskirts or very tight clothes when visiting temples, religious places or official buildings. Sunblock lotion, sunglasses, a hat or cap and a mosquito repellent can be also very helpful during the trip.

Please have in mind that check-in hour in most hotels starts at 1:00 pm. Early-arriving guests will be subject to room availability, while waiting in the hotel lobby.
