Day 1Cusco - Puno

    We’ll pick you up at 7am and take you to the bus terminal. Your Cusco to Lake Titicaca adventure begins at 7:30 as you say goodbye to Cusco and start your 10h journey towards Puno, stopping at several spectacular sites along the way. 

    First stop is Pikillacta, a pre-Inca city whose name means ‘Place of the Flea’ in the Inca language, Quechua! From here, you will visit the colonial church of Andahuaylillas, known as the ‘Sistine Chapel of the Americas’ – it has to be seen to be believed! The spectacular Inca ruin of Raqchi is another highlight, and the incredibly ancient remains of Pukara round out the day. Arriving in Puno in the evening, you will be transferred to your hotel.

    Lunch and guide are included.

Day 2Puno - Uros - Taquile - Puno

    This is a fairly long but fun-filled day! You will be picked up from your hotel around 6:30 am and taken to the boat for your day-long Lake Titicaca adventure. First stop is Uros where you’ll have a brief explanation of the way of life of those who live on these incredible floating islands.

    From here, we travel another 2h on the boat until we reach Taquile, a small island with an incredibly strong traditional culture. Taquile has approximately 1,200 Quechua-speaking inhabitants, most of whom are small-scale farmers. However, since the mid-70s, they have also become well known for their firm entrepreneurial spirit. Since the beginning of the influx of tourism to the island, some Taquileños have been participating directly in tourism activities. Some have organized themselves to provide tourism services such as homestays, restaurants and boat transportation.

    Upon arrival, you’ll have a chance to visit the main plaza and the market, followed by an opportunity to have lunch. After lunch, it’s time to start the 3h journey back to Puno, arriving there around 5pm.

    Lunch is included.

Day 3Puno - Juliaca - onward travel

    Today we’ll transfer you to the airport in Juliaca in time for your departing flight. End of services.
