Two day extension with an overnight in Copacabana. 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. According to legend, the son of Inti, the sun god, emerged as the first Inca from the waters of Lake Titicaca.
Early this morning, transfer by private vehicle with your guide to Copacabana. Visit this picturesque town situated between two mountains and on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Explore the Inca sites outside of the city as well as the cathedral with its dark Virgin of Candelaria statue and museum of European and local religious art. Travelers interested in a workout can climb El Calvario and enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Titicaca and Copacabana. Overnight this evening in Copacabana.
Day 2: Sun Island on Lake Titicaca
1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
We board a boat and head towards Sun Island (1 hour ride). Sun Island is worshiped as the birthplace of Manco Kápac and Mama Ocllo, the first founders of the Inca empire. With your guide, tour the Pilkokaina Palace, the Inca’s Fountain, and the 200 stairs of Yumani. The views from the Sun Island are spectacular.
This afternoon return to Copacabana and continue to La Paz.
Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
