The Amantani tour takes you to the heart of Lake Titicaca, where the Quechua people live and create their traditional weaving art. They share with you some of their music and traditional costumes for an evening dance in the local hall.

Do not forget to enjoy observing the clear skies at night because there is always a possibility of seeing many southern constellations and shooting stars.

DAY 1: Cusco – Puno (12606 ft.)

We have an early morning start to get to Puno. You receive a transfer to the bus station at 6:30 AM to take the tourist bus to Puno that departs at 7 AM. The journey takes you to the highlands of the Andes, where along the way you visit some of the most important Inca sites. Raqch’i is a fine example of them!
The most prominent of all the structures within the ruins is the Temple of Wiracocha. It is 300 feet long by 80 feet wide and 60 feet high, with Inca stonework covering the first 13 feet and adobe the rest.
After exploring the ruins, you continue on your trip and stop nearby Sicuani for lunch. Sicuani, a major city, is vital to the local merchants of alpaca wool and a centre of commerce for the region. After lunch, you cross the highest point in Abra La Raya (14750 ft.). Here, the landscape changes dramatically to an arid-cold region. There are an abundance of alpaca and llama herds; domesticated camelids that serve as a source of wool and meat for the locals. You then drive by Juliaca, another big city that is very commercial and crowded, before arriving to Puno and Lake Titicaca at the end of the day.
After checking in at the hotel, you can explore downtown Puno and enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants around the main square. Dinner is on your own.

Overnight in hotel, double or single room with private bathroom Meals provided: Lunch

DAY 2: Puno Lake Titicaca and Amantani Island (12606 ft.)

An early start is necessary to reach the Puno docks for our boat tour on Lake Titicaca. Our navigation starts towards the Uros, the legendary floating islands, where you stop and visit the local people to experience their way of life. Lake Titicaca is an inner sea, 110-mile-long by an average of 49-mile wide. It has many islands and some of them are populated.
Our next stop is Amantani Island. Arriving before lunch, you disembark and your family hosts walk you to their homes. The coop system distributes visitors among the families so every couple, or small party of people, are in different houses. In the local’s homes you enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Later, we all meet up before sunset for dances and a walk.

Overnight in home-stay *Note: shared toilets, rustic accommodation Meals provided: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Puno – Lake Titicaca and Taquile Island (12606 ft.)

At 7:30 AM you take a boat to visit Taquile island, where a small community of around 400 families lives. This community has developed a cooperative way to share in the tourism thanks to the accommodations and restaurants around, as well as their local crafts and traditional costumes.
After lunch, you head back to the pier and embark in your boat for your journey back to Puno. You arrive by late afternoon, and dinner is on your own.

Overnight in hotel, double or single room with private bathroom Meals provided: Breakfast, Lunch
