Join us to discover the magic of Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world and the largest in South America. For years we have been exploring this area and strengthening our relationship with its local inhabitants, your best hosts.
Visit Llachón and explore Taquile, an island stopped in time and a guardian of millenary customs, with Hector Huatta. See the Uros, the curious handmade floating islands, and paddle in kayaks the legendary waters of this lake, a ride that allows you to observe the immensity of such beauty in all its dimensions.
This trip begins on Llachón, a beautiful peninsula on the shores of Lake Titicaca, in Puno, to where it is easy to fly from cities like Lima or Cusco.
Llachón is located in Capachica, a community that stands out for wearing very peculiar and colorful hats. The community’s entrance is through an arch in the shape of a giant hat, a picturesque detail typical of these remote communities.
Valentín’s family, natives of Llachón, will welcome you and open the doors of their home and rural lodge for the night.
Wake up enjoying the fresh morning air. A boat will take you to a port on Taquile. From here, in expedition kayaks, skirt the western shore of the island to Kullata, a white sandy beach overlooking the snow-capped peaks of Bolivia’s Real Mountain Range that looms on the opposite shore of the lake.
At this beautiful beach, Hector Huatta will welcome you. Walk with Hector a network of pedestrian paths of pre-Inca origin that interconnect this magical island. Visit its archaeological remains, learn about the vegetation, the use of native plants, and the traditional social and political system under which its inhabitants are governed.
UNESCO has recognized the beautiful textile art of the island as Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Be introduced to this world by Hector’s wife and mother, expert weavers. Experience one of the best sunsets in the world and spend the night in this beautiful rural lodge.
This morning say goodbye to Hector and his family. Paddle the eastern shore of the island and observe, from its calm waters, the tranquility of the daily life of the island’s inhabitants.
Then, by boat, visit the floating islands of the Uros communities. You have probably never been on a floating island before. These islands are unique because they are handmade with a vegetable fiber called totora. Learn firsthand about the extraordinary heritage and the ancestral techniques used to keep the islands afloat.
Overnight in a hotel on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
Transfer to the airport.
