It’s hard to do Lake Titicaca justice with words. Its greatest appeal lies not in its natural beauty – though it undoubtedly has that in spades – but in the rich character and traditions of its indigenous communities, whose unique ways of life and deep-rooted heritage remind us of the incredible diversity of human experience

Arrive in Juliana, where your in-the-know guide will be waiting to accompany you to the photogenic, ochre-hued colonial town of Lampa. Arrive at the lodge for check-in and freshen up before heading out to wander your surroundings.
Perched on the lakeside, this 18-room Relais & Châteaux lodge made it into the top 20 of Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Gold List of their favorite hotels in the world. With its fabulous setting, incredible cultural experiences and impeccable, warm service, it’s little wonder why.
Climb aboard the lodge’s boat for a short voyage out to the floating islands of Uros. Made entirely by hand from totora reeds and requiring near-constant maintenance, these unique settlements are home to a community who live entirely off the lake’s natural resources. Continue to the tiny natural island of Taquile to meet a community known for their weaving skills. Watch the dexterous locals at work, knitting and weaving textiles by hand, then sit down for a traditional home-cooked meal.
Today, take advantage of the many Lake Titicaca activities offered by the all-inclusive lodge. Try canoeing out on the calm waters, picnic by the lake’s edge or wait until nightfall to go stargazing, when a million sparkling stars are reflected in the lake’s mirror-clear surface.
On day four, make the journey back to Lima for your return flight home.
