Day 1: VISIT TO UROS – AMANTANÍ WITH OVERNIGHT STAY
 

  • 7:40 a.m. Transfer hotel – port to visit one of the Floating Islands of Uros (5 km west of the Port of Puno, 20 minutes by boat), unique in the world, made with a base of Totora (a herbaceous water plant), and inhabited by Uros families – Aymaras who build and cover their homes with Totora mats. The Uros are known as the “People of the Lake” and their origins date back to before the time of the Incas. The community continues ancient practices such as traditional fishing and wild bird hunting. The Uros men are skilled at navigating Totora rafts and the women are experts at knitting and weaving.
  • From there we continue in boat to the Island of Amantani (36 km northeast of the Port of Puno, 3 hours and 30 minutes by boat), where visitors will spend a night with the locals in specially prepared tourist accommodations in local homes with full room and board.
  • Located at 3817 meters above sea level, Amantani is some 9 km2 in size. The primary flora of this island is bushes and shrubs such as muña, kantuta, sage, tola and patamuña. The various communities on the island cultivate potatoes, corn, oca, quinua, lima beans and peas. They are also known for handicrafts such as textiles and stone carving. Among the island’s many natural attractions, stand out the two lookout points at the island’s highest point, from where the lake in all its grandeur, as well as some Pre-Hispanic ruins and ceremonial centers can be seen.


Day 2: RETURN TO PUNO WITH VISIT TO TAQUILE
 

  • We continue our journey in boat to explore ruins on the Island of Taquile (35 km east of the Port of Puno, 3 hour by boat) which date back to Pre-Incan times and are located at the highest point of the island. Taquile is known for its friendly inhabitants, who conserve their customs, traditions and dress. The locals are also known for their fine detailed textiles with symbolic, symmetrical designs in bright colors, which reflect their lifestyle, customs and Andean beliefs.
  • The island is approximately 6 km2 in size and the altitudes of the port and village vary slightly, from 3810 meters above sea level to 3950 meters above sea level. The average maximum temperature is 23ºC (66ºF) and the minimum is 7ºC (37ºF).
