Day 1 Uros / Amantani

Rise and shine - you're being picked up at 7am for a motorboat excursion on the waters of Lake Titicaca, on the border of Peru and Bolivia, to the unique floating islands of Uros. Ancient inhabitants of the lake, known as the Water Tribe, have built their own islands by periodically adding new layers of a type of reed to the area - they even make their homes and boats out of this material. Take in the sight of these 40 ‘islands' before making your way to Amantani Island, inhabited by over 3,000 Quechua-speaking natives who are still governed by ancient traditions. Explore the Inca and Tiahuanco archaeological remains on the island while taking in the fantastic panoramic views of the lake. Don't eat too much at lunch as you're in for a delicious dinner, prepared by the locals themselves!

Day 2 Taquile / Puno

After a hearty breakfast, it's on to Taquile Island. A narrow and quite hilly island of approximately 15 square kilometres, it was once a prison that belonged to the Spanish! Mingle with inhabitants and check out the beautiful textiles they produce. You'll tuck into a tasty lunch in a local restaurant and will head back to Puno, where this amazing journey ends.
