Full description
At 7:30 am you'll be picked up at your La Paz hotel and begin the 2-day Lake Titicaca tour, heading out with your private guide and driver. First, you'll head to the community of Copacabana (3-hour drive). Here you'll learn from your professional guide about the local Andean culture of the Quechua and Aymara people.

After enjoying a delicious, local lunch, you'll visit the Basilica of the Virgin where you can observe its peculiar domes and blue tiles. In the interior, you'll observe the Dark Virgin of the Lake, which is believed to have caused many miracles. According to local legend, if it is removed from the cathedral, the lake will rise and the city could be flooded. After a relaxing afternoon, you can observe beautiful views of the sunset on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

After watching the sunrise over Lake Titicaca it's time to head off to Sun Island. Sun Island is considered the birthplace of the Inca civilization. In Yumani, on the south side of the island, climb the stone steps built by the Incas that lead to the Fountain of Life. Stroll through the archaeological ruins of the Pilko Kaina Inca Temple and observe how the locals still use pre-Inca farming methods on steep agricultural terraces.

The tour continues with a visit to the Chincana labyrinth of stone.
After lunch, you'll embark on a private boat to return to the town of Copacabana, enjoying wonderful landscapes made by nature to our delight. Here you'll depart by private transfer back to La Paz.
