Experience Nature and Ancient Cultural Heritage at the Heart of an Incan Legend
Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America and the world’s highest navigable lake at 12,500 feet above sea level, spans the border between Peru and Bolivia. This vast body of sapphire-blue water holds sacred stature in Inca mythology: according to legend, this is where the world was created, when the god Viracocha emerged from the primal waters to create the sun, stars and first people. Your visit to Lake Titicaca lends a sense of the mysticism the ancients felt as you discover its natural and cultural riches. From your base at acclaimed Titilaka, a Relais and Chateaux lakeshore lodge, choose among multiple activities: row or sail among floating reed islands, ride bikes over the expanse of the Altiplano, explore pre-Inca ruins on Taquile Island, and meet local people whose indigenous traditions have changed little over centuries.
