Request trip information

In southern Peru, you will find the world's highest inland body of water: Lake Titicaca. Many people arrive by bus from Arequipa, the Colca Canyon Cusco, but a flight to Juliaca from Lima, Arequipa or Cusco is also possible.

A popular route is the "Wonder" First Class Bus from or to Cusco, which is a full day of driving with stops and guided tours of ruins and museums...and and Andean lunch buffet!

The city of Puno has many interesting sights, although you won't want to miss a boat ride out to the island of Taquile, the Uros floating Isle and the Chucuito Peninsula. Return to Puno for the hotel overnight there.  

An overnight on the peninsula at a family lodge makes this trip a true cultural experience!  Inquire for special pricing.  

We recommend a 3-day/2-night itinerary to get to Puno and to have the full day boat tour and a cultural overnight experience at a family lodge.  Prices do not include the bus to/from Puno.

If you would like to book just the one-day boat tour of Lake Titicaca, contact us for details.

/images/itineraries/Peru/peru-titicaca (3).jpg

Full-day boat tour of Lake Titicaca (group boat, private guide). En route, we will see and experience the Titicaca National Reserve, a wetland area formed by the lake as the rainy season increases its level. The island of Taquile, in the middle of Lake Titicaca, is a paradise of peace and beauty. Dedicated to agriculture and weaving, the isolation has allowed its inhabitants to maintain their traditions almost intact. After a walking tour of Taquile Isle and lunch at a local community restaurant, we continue on to the Chucuito Peninsula, where the communities have also retained their cultural heritage. Return to Puno, stopping at Uros on the way.  

If you choose, you may stay overnight at a family lodge on the lake (added cost).  This is a great cultural experience.  Return to Puno the next afternoon.
