What will we do?
Lake Titicaca, in Puno region of the Andean plateau, is the highest navigable lake in the world, at 3812 m.a.s.l (average height) and an area of 8562 square kilometres, sailing on it is an unbeatable adventure. In some parts you feel as if you’re at sea, and there are even small waves to augment the sensation. One of the lake’s islands, Amantani, contains a lodge offering experiences that are almost unreal.
Amantica Lodge has large comfortable suites with a view of the lake —and wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows— as well as a menu that explores the wealth and variety of local produce, which it uses to create dishes accompanied by an extensive cellar of wines and sparkling wines. It also offers activities that include ancient practices sacred to the Incas, such as coca leaf readings performed by a shaman, and ceremonies dedicated to the Pachamama, observation of the stars guided by an expert astronomer, fishing, cooking and tasting classes, walks, trekking and kayaking.
French architect Tom Gimbert came to Peru to design projects based on sustainability. His projects include the Ecolodge in Mancora and the Amantica Lodge, both having their own style and supported by the local community. LimaTours and Tom Gimbert have worked together to create similar projects in different parts of Peru.
