Where you’ll kayak

Uros best place for kayaking at Sunset.jpg

This late afternoon on your kayak you’ll cover the beautiful foreshore of Southern Uros islands in Lake Titicaca National Reserve. It’s perfect for those who are fairly new to kayaking, as well as more experienced kayakers who enjoy and appreciate the contrast while the sun is slowly setting over Puno hill and the reed islands.

Current launch location is Chimu bay 15 min away from Puno city on the South high way to Bolivia, but you won’t need to make sure how you’re going to get to the local dock for the scheduled arrival time because private transfer is included.

You don’t need to be an experienced kayaker as our kayaks are really stable and you will be instructed and guided in a small group of paddlers (or only you).

We did the kayak experience at the Uros Islands and it was super interesting and fun: Edison is available for any enquiry or need and also very very kind, and so are the island inhabitants that we met.

On each tour, our Kayak Guide is there to ensure you are safe and having a great time on Lake Titicaca the highest one in the world. He will also happily take your  photo in front of Uros people’s reed homes and reed boats and email them to you after the tour.

The time advertised on the schedule (which changes slightly throughout the season, based on the sunset time), in winter or dry season is at 4pm the time you are transferred to arrive at the launch place.

You will then get ready and be out on the water during the day light, just in time for the sunset.
