ITINERARY

After breakfast at your hotel, you will be transferred to the lake port of Puno, where a regular boat will take you to the floating islands of the Uros.

Located 4 miles northwest of the city, the Uros are an ancestral society that populate a series of artificial islands built on the basis of the totora plant, which grows in the same lake. The islands are constructed by weaving the totora in the places where it grows thicker and forming a natural layer. On top of it they built their houses, also of totora, and cook outdoors to prevent possible fires.

We are going to be in contact with the local people. They will show to us their lifestyle and traditions, with more than 200 families living here.

Then, we will return to the port of Puno, where our transport will be waiting to take you to your hotel.
