Your Itinerary

Puno - Luquina

Your overnight adventure on Titicaca Lake starts in the morning as you board a small boat. Your first visit is Taquile, a traditional weaver’s island. The backdrop of the snowcapped Cordillera Real ensures an amazing background for your photos. After learning about the important Peruvian and head to Luquina Chico for a delicious Andean lunch served in the community’s restaurant ‘La Casa del Pescador’ (The Fisherman House). After lunch, get ready for an active afternoon of adventure. Start off by biking around the peninsula. The country roads running along the lake combined with the diverse terrain create the perfect setting for active exploration. After exploring the community by bike and observing the way local villagers live in the rural fields, head for the lake for your next activity of the day – kayaking. Paddle the pristine waters of the lake and take in the spectacular views as you enjoy the fresh air. In the evening, enjoy the chance for a unique cultural exchange at dinner time with your host family.

Luquina - Puno

After breakfast, take in the breathtaking views as you hike along the shores of Lake Titicaca. For those who would like a more hands-on experience, why not join your host as he casts his fishing net? On your way back to Puno make sure to visit the Uros floating islands. Learn about the community’s way of life and interact with the locals who live interwoven with the 'totora' reed which grows abundantly in the shallows of the lake.
