Experience Nature and Culture in a Mystical Setting at the Heart of an Incan Legend
Day 1: Juliaca / Titilaka, Peru
Fly to Juliaca where you are greeted by your English-speaking guide and driver and transferred to Titilaka Lodge. Titilaka is located on the Peruvian western shores of the Lake Titicaca, among small hamlets of Quechua and Aymara speakers, and near pre-Columbian and colonial heritage sites. Our drive over the Altiplano takes us directly to the secluded peninsula that is the setting for the lodge.
Your 3-night, 4-day comprehensive package begins with lunch on arrival, the first opportunity to sample the fresh contemporary Peruvian dishes the lodge dining room is noted for, such as cilantro lamb and vegetable soup. This afternoon, consult with the Experience Concierge who will tailor a custom itinerary to your preferences, incorporating activities ranging from contemplative to exhilarating. Excursions range from 2-hour outings to half- or full-day excursions subject to weather conditions, schedules, abilities and personal preferences.
Days 2 & 3: Exploring Lake Titicaca & Environs
Two more full days are devoted to a personalized mix of activities designed to provide a captivating experience of the geography, history
and culture of the Lake Titicaca region. Included in your comprehensive package is a visit to the famous Uros Floating Islands, a collection of 44 hand-constructed reed islands that are home to local fishermen and basketweavers
, as well as a trip to Taquile Island with its fascinating pre-Incan ruins. Also included are short excursions or half-day trips such as rowing among the reeds, hikes along the beach or to Titicaca Arch, mountain bike outings, a visit to a local community and archaeological site, or paddling a kayak around Titilaka's private peninsula to observe nature along the shoreline.
A broad slate of optional additional activities (at extra cost) is also available – a full day exploring Taquile, Amantani or Sun Islands; or discover fascinating geological and archaeological sites on overland excursions to Tinajani Canyon and Tihuanaco
Your package includes all meals at the lodge and while you are participating in various activities off site. Drinks (except premium labels) are also included during cocktail hour at lunch and dinner at the lodge.
Day 4: Transfer to Airport for Homeward Flights
After breakfast, enjoy a final morning of activity before transferring to the Juliaca airport for onward flights. Depending on flight schedules and on when you first arrived, lunch at the lodge may also be included.
