Lake Titicaca Home-stay
Immerse yourself in traditional culture on a unique tailor-made tour around Lake Titicaca. As you sail across the famously still waters between the islands of Uros, Amantani and Taquile you can soak in the incredible landscape of snow-capped mountain ranges falling down to the vast basin of the high plateau. Lake Titicaca is the world's highest navigable body of water and is said to be the birthplace of the Inca Empire.
Starting on the mainland in Puno you will have a chance to explore this quaint hillside city and visit Sillustani, a pre-Inca burial ground. From here you set sail on the lake to the incredible floating islands of Uros where the boats, houses and islands themselves are all constructed of Totura reeds. Following on to Amantani Island you will be immersed in traditional culture and hospitality as you interact with the local community and spend the night in a homestay. On Taquile Island, you can also experience indigenous life that has remained the same for generations. Taquile communities are famous for their textiles, the knitting is exclusively created by the men, while the women do the weaving. Travelling across Lake Titicaca is a beautiful journey and one that gives you the chance to get to know the local Aymara and Quechua language whilst experiencing a unique way of living.
