This tour includes visits to the floating Uros islands on Lake Titicaca, the natural Taquile Island and Puno.
Day 1 (Cusco- Andahuaylillas – Raqchi – Pukara – Uros)
We will depart Cusco at 7am so that we can take our time and enjoy the varied sites on the way to Puno. First, we visit the charming church of Andahuaylillas, Checacupe Incan and Colonial bridges, then on to the Raqchi archaeological site of the Wari culture and finally Pukara where we will visit the small museum, we will have a buffet lunch on the way. Arriving at Puno, we leave our private transport in the garage and then transfer to the Uros floating islands (around dusk). We will spend a restful night at Waliski Lodge greeted warmly by our hosts, and after a home cooked meal we will curl up with some hot water bottles and sleep peacefully on the floating islands.(Lunch, Dinner)
Day 2 (Uros – Taquile – Puno)
In the morning, you can get up early and see the sunrise over the lake, or stay tucked up in bed until the sun warms the island a little. Today we will take a boat tour to Taquile Island where you will be able to see the local people keeping their culture alive with traditional dress and customs, we will have lunch on Taquile, and then take the boat back to Puno. Alternatively, you can choose to return to the Waliski Lodge for the night and watch the sunset over Lake Titicaca from the floating islands.(Breakfast, Lunch)
Day 3 (Puno – Cusco)
After breakfast in our hotel, we either return to Cusco, or we can drop you off at the Juliaca airport or Puno bus station if you are continuing your journey elsewhere.
Otherwise, if you elect to stay on the floating islands a second night, then after breakfast our hosts will explain how the islands are created and maintained, and explain about life on the floating islands.
