Full description
Day 1: Puno – Uros Island – Amantaní

After pickup and a transfer to the main port, take a boat ride to Uros Island. Fishermen and hunters inhabit this floating island built of totora, an aquatic plant that grows on the surface of the lake. Learn how the totora is woven and laid and layered to build the surface of each island. As an optional activity, it is possible to make a journey in a boat called "balsa de totora", a traditional form of aquatic transport also made from the reeds. 

Then, continue to Amantani Island. Upon arrival, a local family will take you to their home. A traditional lunch will be prepared by the locals with products from the area. Next, visit the famous pre-Inca Pachatata temple. At dusk, hike to the top of the island at 4130m, from where you will be able to observe the sunset over Lake Titicaca. Dinner and overnight at the local family's house on Amantani Island.

Day 2: Amantaní – Taquile – Puno

After breakfast, head to Taquile Island, famous for its handicraft production and beautiful textiles. Locals even wear a special hat to signify if they are single, married, or in a position of authority. Explore local temples, tombs and terraces from the pre-Inca era, as well as learning about traditional farming techniques and the island's ancient customs. Then return to Puno and be transferred back to your hotel.
