First Day:

Start your adventure with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation at 8:00 am. Our pick-up area covers Puno’s center, and we can arrange pick-ups from other areas if you let us know in advance.

At 8:30 am, we set off on a lake boat towards the Uros floating islands. Marvel at the picturesque landscape of Lake Titicaca during the tour.

Arriving at the Uros islands at 10:00 am, the locals will assist you in disembarking from the boat. Immerse yourself in the unique way of life on these floating islands and discover the various uses of the totora reed. You may even have the opportunity to take a ride in a boat made of totora reeds (additional cost).

By 11:00 am, we continue our journey to Amantani, enjoying the scenic beauty of the lake and spotting more floating islands along the way. Feel free to climb to the boat’s rooftop for a better view.

At 12:30 pm, we arrive at Amantani and meet the local family with whom we will be staying. They will serve us a delicious lunch and provide recommendations for exploring the island. Before sunset, we will head to “Pachatata and Pachamama” to witness the stunning sunset.

In the evening, at 8:00 pm, gather with the group for a delightful evening of conversation, live Andean folkloric music, and drinks after dinner.
