What will we do?
Our guide will pick you up from the hotel in Puno very early in the morning, to take a two-hour motor excursion on the waters of Lake Titicaca to the unique Floating "Islands" of the 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 having experienced some of the ancient traditions of the local people, you continue your motorboat trip to Amantani Island. This island is inhabited by Quechua-speaking natives still governed by their ancient traditions, whose main occupations are the production of ceramics and textiles. The positive energy of this Island is so powerful that it is known as the "Love Island". Lunch. Upon arrival to the island, accommodation and overnight at the house of a local islander to enjoy the hospitality of a typical Amantani home. Dinner included.
After breakfast, you have time to stroll at leisure through the quaint streets of this colourful island. Late morning, you take a motorboat to Taquile Island, also inhabited by Quechua-speaking natives who have developed efficient and unique social systems, as well as fine hand weaving techniques, down through the generations. It is necessary to go up a stairway of more than 567 steps-streaks of stone that wind their way among greenery platforms to arrive at the Town of Taquile where we will have a break to eat. By the afternoon, you will return to Puno and in the evening you will arrive to the hotel.
