During this two-day boat trip to the Uros, Amantani and Taquile islands you will visit the local people and admire their typical houses. On the islands you will find an intact and changeable nature. You can also spend a night in a local family and get to know entirely the local life.

When to book: It is always better to book as soon as you know your dates, so that we can offer you the best service.
Group size: Normally there are between 8 and 20 people in a group
After breakfast at your hotel we will pick you up to take you to the port at 8.30am. We will take a boat to the Uros islands, then go on to Amantani island which is important for its environmental and ethnic values. You will have lunch and get settled in the houses of local people. A tour of the island is included, visiting Pacha Tayta and Pacha Mama (Father Earth and Mother Earth). We will have dinner and overnight here.
Next day, after an Andean breakfast in your host family's home, we will take a boat to Taquile island which is as important as Amantani in terms of its landscape and the ethnic ways of the inhabitants who still abide by their traditional, ancestral customs. On the islands of Amantani or Taquile the people offer lodging and food in their own houses. After lunch we will return to Puno by boat which takes between three and four hours.
