Some activities or excursions include fishing and food sampling, walking to Pachatata (the island’s highest point), trek to the community, kayaking, cooking lesson, Pachamama ceremony, or a visit to one of the Uros floating islands. Visitors come here to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with nature. However, free WiFi, phones, and a TV set are available.
If you are looking for an authentic yet luxurious way to explore the Titicaca Lake intimately – a stay at the exclusive and remote Amantica Lodge is the answer. This 2-suite lodge occupies an extraordinary position on Amantani Island, a three-hour boat ride from the mainland. Built from clay, wood, volcanic stone and decorated with local textiles, Amantica offers stunning lake views but above all a fascinating journey through time to explore the cultural, natural, and historical treasures of this remote island. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by Mrs. Justa with a drink specially prepared with fresh herbs from the garden. Mr. Osvaldo, an island native, will welcome you and introduce you to island life. Once you are ready for dinner, enjoy an exquisite meal prepared by chef Adeli from Puno. Trained at the renowned restaurant Gustu in La Paz, Mr. Adeli turns fresh ingredients harvested directly from the island into delightful dishes.
Life on Amantani Island is simple. Villagers rise with the sun, go fishing, and farm pre-Inca terraces. Spend the day learning about the islanders’ way of life and go hiking, kayaking and fishing or participate in a cooking lesson. For those looking to relax, the lodge’s deck is the perfect spot for watching the sunlight sparkle on the Titicaca Lake as fishermen pass by on their wooden boats. In the evening, don’t miss out on the chance to make your way up to Pachatata - the highest point on the island. Breathe in the fresh island air as you witness a once-in-a-lifetime sunset.
After a delicious breakfast, try out one more activity on the island before saying goodbye to your hosts and leaving for the mainland.
You will be picked up at your hotel in Puno. The lodge is about 1-2 hours from Puno by boat.
