Day 2:

Fly from Lima to Juliaca, transfer to Puno for Welcome Dinner

After arriving in Lima, you’ll board a connecting flight to Juliaca, Peru. From there, a bus will transfer you to Puno, along the shores of Lake Titicaca.

Day 3:

Sail around Uros Floating Islands and meet Lake Titicaca’s Uros people

Today’s excursion will introduce you to the Uros people, an ancient tribe who live on man-made islands in the middle of Lake Titicaca. 

Board traditional reed boats for a sail around Lake Titicaca and its islands. You’ll learn about the Uros tribe and how — after the Incan civilization enclosed on their lands — its people made their homes on these islands. You’ll also learn how the islands were ingeniously built from dried, woven totora reeds. Lunch is included on the excursion. 

Back at the hotel this afternoon, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, with dinner on your own.

Capture the ancient Sillustani funerary towers and visit locals in Hatun Qolla

After breakfast, join an excursion to the Sillustani funerary towers, a pre-Incan cemetery on Lake Umayo. The aboveground tombs are the work of the ancient Qolla people, whom the Inca conquered in the 15th century. Bring your camera to capture these bizarre landscapes and spectacular vistas of the surrounding lake.

Next, we’ll stop in the small town of Hatun Qolla. Here, we’ll be welcomed into locals’ homes to learn about their lifestyle and agricultural techniques. Along the way, you’ll meet some adorable llamas and alpacas. Just don’t get too close, as they do spit!
