Shortly after that we take you to the local harbour where we board a small motor boat.
First we visit The Uros Floating Islands”, a small community that has lived on these reed Islands for decades.
Long ago the Uros tribe conceived on the islands as a way to isolate and protect themselves from rival tribes.
During our visit we will learn with our local guide about their lifestyle, traditions and beliefs.
In addition, we also take a short ride on a reed boat.
After strolling around the floating Islands, we continue our boat journey to the “Amantani Island”.
Upon arrival in Amantani, a group of islanders will welcome us at the harbor.
Shortly after that, we join our host family and go up with them to their house.
Late in the afternoon, we will do a short trek towards the summit of a hill known locally as Pachamama.
Once at the top, you can appreciate awe-inspiring views of Lake Titicaca.
Soon after sunset, we return to our house where our family will be awaiting us for dinner.
In the evening our group will gather at the local saloon where islanders celebrate a party which is accompanied by one small orchestra.
Our local families will provide traditional clothing to attend this nice party.
Men are given ponchos and wooly hats, the hats are handmade by the families, with unique styles.
Women are given colorful skirts, blouses and veils.
Overnight at a family house on the Amantani island.
Day 2°: The Taquile Island
Taquile is a traditional Quechua speaking community, located at the heart of the Lake Titicaca.
