This morning you will take to the lake for a full day tour, taking in some beautiful scenery and fascinating local communities. Your first stop will be at the Uros Islands – though a little touristy for some, these islands are undoubtedly a remarkable place to visit. These floating islands are made entirely of tortora reeds and, despite the initial springy feel underfoot, you will soon see that they are surprisingly robust. The islanders will proudly show you their homes and traditional cooking methods, as well as imploring you to buy some of their traditional handicrafts. You will then continue on for approximately two hours until you reach the community of Llachon, located on the shores of the lake’s Capachica peninsula. This offers a pleasant contrast to Uros as it receives fewer visitors and is altogether a more tranquil experience. You will hike to the top of the peninsula to enjoy sweeping views and then visit Llachon village and have lunch in a local home.
