Lake Titicata

an area of supreme natural beauty with cultural heritage and archaeological wonders

Straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia, the legendary Lake Titicaca and its surrounds are an area of supreme natural beauty. Here you will discover the cultural heritage and archaeological wonders left by the Aymara who pre-date the Incas.

The intense blue waters of Lake Titicaca, backed by snowy Andean mountains and often shrouded by mist, is the world’s highest navigable lake at over 3,800 metres above sea level. A spiritual as well as a scenic place, the lands that circle the lake are home to ancient cultures and traditions that have mostly stayed the same for thousands of years.

Puno, perched on the shores of the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca, serves as the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area and enjoy activities on the lake itself. Whether you’re interested in mountain biking or horse riding, spending time with local communities or visiting the fascinating archaeological site at Sillustani, there is plenty to keep busy.

You can set sail for the floating Uros Islands; an intriguing archipelago where everything is made from the tortora reeds found growing on the lake. Further afield are the peaceful islands of Taquile and Amantani, home to terraces and warm locals who don colourful traditional dress.

Your tailor-made trip to Lake Titicaca could also include a homestay with a local family, a memorable experience ideal for getting a better understanding about the way of life and rich customs of the local people.
