Stop At: Uros Floating Islands

We will be picking you up from your hotel in Puno and have you transferred to the boat pier. Once aboard the boat, sit back and relax the ride for 25 minutes as you cruise the shimmering waters of the expansive Lake Titicaca. For stunning views, climb to the upper deck and see the city of Puno gradually diminishing in size as you journey towards the distant landforms, slowly taking shape ahead of you.  Upon arrival, your expectant hosts will help you down, and you’ll set foot on these impressive artificial islands and be shown round. Learn the secrets of the totora reed from your guide, and the process used in the construction and maintenance of the islands. Gain an insight into the everyday lives of the Uros people, and take the opportunity to experience a ride on a traditional reed boat (optional, at an additional cost).  Bid farewell to the islanders and board the boat, which will take you back to reality, back to Puno
