Tour Details

The two-day trip to Lake Titicaca in Puno offers an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the region. It includes an overnight stay at a local family home on Amantani Island.

Similar to the half-day and day trips, this journey also starts with a visit to the Uros Floating Islands. The Uros Islands are a unique and must-see attraction, not only in the country but also in all of South America.

Amantani Island is home to two peaks known as “Pacha Tata” and “Pacha Mama,” where you can explore archaeological remains and centers of worship and culture. The island’s abundant natural beauty offers captivating landscapes that contrast with the vastness of Lake Titicaca.

Taquile Island maintains its distinct charm, as the local inhabitants have preserved their age-old traditions and customs.

Lake Titicaca is easily accessible from Cusco. Puno is the nearest major city to Lake Titicaca, and regular buses operate between Cusco and Puno. The Juliaca Airport is the closest airport to Puno and Lake Titicaca, with a short flight of approximately 40 minutes from Cusco.

Alternatively, you can experience the scenic train ride from Cusco to Puno, with the Andean Explorer Train being a renowned and popular choice for this journey.
