Where you’ll kayak


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 (the name of the driver will be sent to you after tour confirmation).

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).
