EXCURSION TO THE FLOATING ISLANDS: UROS

 

 

HALF DAY: 8:45 AM – 12:30PM

 

ITINERARY:

 

Our trip to the floating islands of the Uros morning begins with the gathering of our customers from their hotels in the city of Puno.

Then we go to the port of the Lake "Titicaca" where we set sail for the floating islands "Uros".

 

After 30 minutes, we'll reach the small community of "Los Uros", where we will walk knowing their people, their customs and their way of life.

It is said that the residents of the Uros have inhabited these islands for hundreds of years and they came here to protect them of the "Collas" and "Incas" constantly threatened tribes.

 

The man of "Uros" learned to use the existing cane "totora" and form small islands like platforms.

 

They also used the same material to build their huts and boats, thereby creating their own world.

 

During our visit we will visit native families, schoolhouses, craft shops and even take a walk in their boats or reed boats. Finally we return to the city of Puno.

 

Upon arrival at the dock our transport will be waiting to take them to their hotel.
