Visit the famous floating islands of the Lake Titicaca, a gorgeous village located a few minutes away from the city of Puno, right on the waters of the Lake Titicaca. Here you will learn about the life of the Uros people, their history and traditions. Venture on this fantastic journey and meet people considered one of the first ethnic groups populating the Andean region, predating the Incas for hundreds of years. Here our local guide will show you the most relevant places and will explain about their ancient techniques of fishing and hunting. We include on our program a nice ride on their little handmade- reed boats around the islands. At the zone you will also be able to buy beautiful handicrafts elaborated by the Uros women.
You will be picked up directly from you hotel at 9am and transferred down to the harbour. At the harbour we will embark a motorized boat that will take us to the tribes of the Uros people. The boat ride lasts approximately 30 minutes and offers fine views of Lake Titicaca, as well as surrounding mountains.
Upon arrival you will be welcomed by a group of islanders, who will then show us around. Your guide will explain important aspects of the islander’s lives.
