Kayaktour Floating Islands

Did a kayaktour to the uros floating Islands. Had a great Day with Edison. Perfect organization and lots of information! Thanks


Kayaking to Uros Islands

I had a wonderful time with Edison on the kayaking trip to the Uros Islands. It was beautiful and there was a lot of wildlife to se. Edison was very informative and professional, and he explained the history of the Lake Titicaca region as well as how the islands are built. The hotel in the Uros Islands was very comfortable and the food was good. I had a great time!

Your route & detailed tour description

Hotel/bus station/train station pick-up

In order to gain time our driver Roberto/Isidro is the person who will take you from your hotel to the launching point. It usually takes 15 min including traffic jam. You don’t have to come by your own way (included in the price).

After seeing the scenery of Puno bay your kayak guide greets you and shows you the kayak you’ve selected (important: before you get the confirmation email you have the option to select between a single kayak or a double seater kayak).

Kayak to Uros islands, and then navigate to Taquile for homestay by speed boat. Next day paddle from Uros to Puno.

Previous kayak experience is not mandatory or required but if you have already kayaked it’s just perfect to have more time to enjoy the landscape. Get in your kayak and paddle to Uros islands.

On the way to Uros

Getting to Uros by kayak.jpg

You’ll paddle on calm and tranquil water, some local people navigate by their engine boats on the same water way.

The landscape is overall surrounded by reeds the material Uros population gets for making their floating homes.

Arrival to Uros

The best choice to appreciate the gorgeous view of the combination of water and reed islands is visiting by kayaks.

One of these families will give us a warm welcoming to their reed house. We’ll learn how long takes to finish it, why do they live and more.
