Uros and Taquile Islands Tour

The Uros and Taquile Islands Tour is a must-do in Puno.  It’s the main city to access Lake Titicaca – one of the World’s largest lakes. It is a destination not only for tourists, but also lake dwellers here to market their wares and shop for necessities. Puno does, however, have its understated charms, and is a convenient base for exploring Titicaca’s amazing islands, pre-Columbian ruins and other attractions.

Discover the rural tranquility of the Uros and Taquile Islands on an enriching Full Day Uros and Taquile Islands Tour excursion from Puno. Cruise the shimmering waters of Lake Titicaca, the worlds highest lake, and spend some leisurely free time exploring the beautiful islands.

First we will visit the Uros, the friendly inhabitants of these handmade islands made of totora reeds. Then it’s off to Taquile Island, a place in which the settlers still maintain their ancestral traditions and colorful typical clothes.
