Lake Titicaca

Explore Lake Titicaca, a geographic landmark at the crossroads of the Andes and the Andean plateau and the world's highest navigable and South America's largest lake. This extension spends two nights in Puno.

Day 1

Puno

A luxury-class bus takes us  from Cusco to the shores of Lake Titicaca.  Along the way, enjoy optional visits to the "Sistine Chapel" of Peru and a pre-Incan site, as well as a huge lunch featuring traditional Peruvian cuisine.  Entrances to the sites are additional (aprx. $10 per person), but the lunch is on us!

Arrive at mystical Lake Titicaca in the early afternoon.  Legend has it that the first Inca rose out of its azure waters.  Transfer to your hotel and explore on your own this afternoon.

Day 2

Islands of Lake Titicaca

Depart this morning with your guide for the floating islands of the Uros people. Peru's floating islands are built using the buoyant totora reeds that grow along Lake Titicaca, and these reeds are interwoven to make homes, boats, and crafts.

In the afternoon, visit Taquile Island. Climb the steps to the plaza at the center of the island for breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Return to Puno and relax this evening on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
