Islands of Lake Titicaca - Full Day
Lake Titicaca, Peru
Spend the day exploring the floating islands of Uros and the island of Taquile on Lake Titicaca on this full day adventure. Accompanied by a guide from Titilaka, you'll meet local communities and learn about traditional crafts.
The floating islands of Uros are a major draw to visitors to Lake Titicaca and it's easy to see why. You will be introduced to the local Uro-Aymara communities, learning about their expert weaving techniques which have been passed down from generation to generation to create the islands, boats and canoes which form their homes and livelihoods. Your guide will help translate and explain more about the Quechua heritage and culture, as well as the beautiful textile weavings which form part of UNESCO's Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity shortlist. Lunch will be served with the spectacular backdrop of the lake and Bolivia's Cordillera Real mountain range in the distance.
