The next two days you will get to know the legendary Lake Titicaca and its unique islands. In the morning, you will be brought to the harbor. There, you will take a motorboat to the floating islands of Uros. The inhabitants of these islands speak the indigenous language Aymaran and are known for their extraordinary way of life: they use the natural material reed not only as a foundation of their artificial islands, but also for their boats and houses. After lunch you will continue your trip to the natural island Amantani. You can take a short walk along the paths and climb up to the archaeological sites Pachatata (Father Earth) and Pachamama (Mother Earth).
