The highest navigable lake in the world.

The highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca offers a mesmerising blend of natural beauty, cultural heritage, and indigenous traditions.

Embark on an extraordinary holiday to Lake Titicaca, a captivating destination that straddles the border of Peru and Bolivia.

Begin your journey in the charming lakeside city of Puno, Peru. Explore its bustling markets and vibrant plazas, immersing yourself in the local culture. From Puno, take a boat excursion to explore the vast expanse of Lake Titicaca. As you traverse the shimmering blue waters, surrounded by the majestic Andean peaks, you'll be captivated by the landscapes that unfold before your eyes.

Visit the Uros Islands, a collection of floating islands made entirely of totora reeds. Witness the incredible craftsmanship of the Uros people as they demonstrate their traditional way of life. Learn about their unique homes, made from reeds, and the sustainable practices that have been passed down the generations for centuries. Engage with the locals, listen to their stories, and gain insights into their ancient customs and traditions.

Continue your journey to Taquile Island, where time seems to stand still. This remote island is known for its preserved Inca and Quechua traditions, weaving techniques, and vibrant textile artistry. Explore the terraced hillsides, interact with the friendly locals, and admire the intricate handwoven textiles that reflect the islanders' cultural identity.

For a truly immersive experience, consider staying overnight with a local family on Amantani Island. This unique opportunity allows you to experience the authentic lifestyle of the islanders, partake in their daily activities, and witness their rich cultural rituals. From traditional dress to lively folk dances, the warmth and hospitality of the locals will leave a lasting impression.

During your visit, don't miss the opportunity to savour the local cuisine, which showcases the flavours of the Andean region. Indulge in freshly caught lake trout, quinoa-based dishes, and unique culinary specialties influenced by indigenous traditions. The local communities are known for their hospitality and will gladly share their culinary heritage with you.
