Morning: Uros Floating Islands Tour from Puno

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Lake Titicaca, Puno 21000 Peru

Pick-up from your hotel in Puno around 9am, from where we will go to the port in Puno and then climb aboard a motor boat.
We will take a beautiful motor boat journey (30 min.) amongst the reeds, we arrive to Uros, an archipelago of more than 60 manmade floating islands inhabited by the Uros, an ethnic group of fishermen, part of an ancestral group.
Very few is known about their origins, a tradition tells that when an Inca king asked; Who are you? They answered “We are the first inhabitants on earth and have black blood”.
In the colonial time they tried to live away the white man contact, but in the last decades they have made a more fluid contact with the main land culture, but still have bird’s hunting and fishing as their main activities. stepping on these man-made reed platforms feels very much like a waterbed, however they are quite safe to walk on. Actually you will observe a number of reed islands one next to the other, with houses and people on them There get a Guided tour to 2 or 3 islands, explore the surroundings on an authentic reed raft (optional)
Return to Puno, arrival at 12.15pm


Duration: 3 hours
