The Pros (good news)

If you don't want to paddle only 4 km to Uros Islands (and it's just one way kayaning!) and then travel by boat to Amantani and Taquile Islands, so Amantani Kayak it's a perfect long distance kayaking Trip.

At Andean Ways, we love to designe all our Titicaca multi-day kayaking Trip and Expeditions out of the  touristy ways and instead we’re going to drive you visiting the most remote and impressive places and Islands on Lake Titicaca.

At Lake Titicaca Kayak Tour Company we're going to offer you to redesign or adjust this itinerary at any time, before departure and when running the tour.

The Cons (bad news)

Kayaking at 38810 masl can be difficult and exhausting. It's challenging but in the end it's worth it.

Amantani Kayak and Homestay is a private tour and it is quite pricey; but instead you'll have a personal English speaking guide, the boatman, one family lodge to host us far away from the crowds (as much as possible we can).
