Explore the Uros floating islands and the Island of Taquile on this full-day trip; one of our most popular excursions. The floating islands of the Uros Titino communities of Lake Titicaca are neither land, sky, nor water, but rather the intersection of all three. Totora, also called junco reed roots, serves as a unique building material.
The Islands of Lake Titicaca excursion brings you closer to the islands’ Uros-Aymara communities, providing a unique opportunity to personally meet the skilled reed raftsmen and expert weaver women famous for their craft. You’ll get to know first-hand the remarkable heritage and the ancestral techniques used to keep their islands afloat.
