Add this on to our Signature Peru programme & visit the largest lake of South America and the highest navigable lake in the world!
Travel across the Altiplano of Peru, from Cusco to Puno; snow capped mountains, local villages, and country vistas. Visit atmospheric towns of Pucara and Andahuaylillas, and the pre-Inca ruin of Raqchi along the way.
Spend two nights in Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Explore the lake, hike along a pre-Inca trail on Taquile Island, visit local families of weavers, participate in an ancient ceremony with a Quechua speaking community, and visit the floating reed islands which made this area famous.
According to Incan mythology, this is the place from where the world was created, when the god Viracocha rose out of the lake and created the sun, the stars and the first people. Uncover the mystery for yourself!
