Description of Lake Titicaca tour

This Lake Titicaca tour is a tailor made trip to discover Peruís most famous lake, which makes a superb extension for travellers visiting Cusco and the Sacred Valley as we can incorporate the return bus trip between them. Or indeed an airline connection to Juliaca airport, just 32km west of the lake for a supplemental cost.

Lake Titicaca is located at an elevation of 3,800m, with the traditional lakeside town of Puno your starting point. Spend a night at a hotel in Puno taking a boat out the next day to the floating reed islands of Uros, and also the Aymara-inhabited islands of Amantani and Taquile, staying in a family homestay on the former.

The natural and cultural heritage of Lake Titicaca is quite simply magnificent. As well as the vast lake itself, you will have views over to Boliviaís Cordillera Real Mountains but you will also have a chance to learn about the Quechua and Inca heritage, as it is said that the lake is the birthplace of the Inca Empire.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Our trips source as much as possible from the local community, whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, local produce for meals or transport on tour. We do not use imported goods when local produce is available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in. All operations for this tour are done by locally owned companies, a fact we pride ourselves on.

Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or have many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. We source them due to their unique contact with the local community in the Lake Titicaca region, and their knowledge on the sites, fauna and flora you will pass on route, as well as giving you a fascinating insight into the history of this important region of Peru.

By booking your tour with us, you will be making a real impact on the community you are visiting. We can also assist you if you wish to visit community projects in order to get a lot more out of your trip to Peru. From a city orphanage run by a UK charity to an environmental project which involves local children and their communities from a high profile Peruvian NGO. Most importantly 10% of funds from your tour will go back to our charities, and assist us support the next generation and the environment they live in. You also have the option to donate to our select charities upon purchasing a tour with us.

We really work hard to keep all our operations green! All our worldwide offices currently run on 90% green energy (we are working towards 100%) from hydro electric, wind to solar power. Being web based, we are close to becoming a paperless environment, brochure prints are at a minimum (and printed on a requirement basis) and all pre departure information is emailed. We use energy saving bulbs in our work centres, and recycle all our waste. We currently work with 3 different charities, giving us a broad spectrum and diversifying where our monies go.

We work with Project Peru in the UK who run an orphanage in Zapallal in the shanty town outskirts of Lima, ANIA in Peru which is a high profile Peruvian NGO which works with children and helps to teach them about their local environment and how to manage it affectively, and GVI Foundation in Australia which work on several development projects in Latin America and around the world. We help these charities by fundraising treks, through donations as a company and through our clients and also through many of our customers who volunteer their time and expertise. These charities are close to our core of supporting the environment and children in need.
