Tour Description

The tour to Los Uros Floating Islands has a duration of 3 hours approximately. We begin with the pick up of your hotel to transfer you to the Port of Puno where we will take comfortable and modern boats to Los Uros Floating Islands, which are located 6 kilometers from the Port. Arriving to the islands the guide will give you complete information about the way of life and history of these people who live in the middle of Lake Titicaca: dedicated to fishing, using woven Totora boats, also working on the planting of some root crops in the islands themselves, and the development of handicrafts. The diet of the uros is based on the Artisanal Fishing of the Carachi and the Pejerrey, and also in the Hunting of Wild Birds. The Totora is also part of the diet: its whitish inner part, called Chullo, is consumed as food and contains a large amount of iodine. In this way, the Uros are protected from the goiter, which is very common in the Andes.
After visiting the floating islands of Los Uros, we will return to the port and then transfer you to your hotel.
