Why Llachon Kayak?

At Andean Ways we still believe in authenticity, we think there is still genuine ways of life out there in Lake Titicaca to rediscover to live and share, and that's why Llachon Kayak is more than just kayaking and paddling across the open Lake and along the shoreline of Llachon Capachica peninsula.

We have created Llachon Kayak as a full-day fully guided kayaking and cultural experience combo tour for your total enjoyment.
