Depart this morning for your full day tour out onto Lake Titicaca to take in some beautiful scenery and visit two traditional island communities. The Uros Islands – though a little touristy for some – are undoubtedly a remarkable place to visit. These floating islands are made entirely of tortora reeds and, despite the initial springy feeling 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 continue on to Taquile Island, best known for its colourful weaving and textiles. The dress of the islanders here has remained unchanged for generations, and your guide will explain more about the significance of their clothing, as well as some unique Taquile traditions – the knitting of hats, for example, which is carried out exclusively by then men of the island. Taquile is also a great place to take in some panoramic views of the lake, as well as the remnants of Inca terracing.
