Lake Titicaca: the birthplace of the Incan civilisation

Our tailor-made Lake Titicaca tours bring you to this vast expanse of water. The lake is 3,800 metres above sea level and surrounded by the mighty Andes. Here you can explore a lake that is home to a diverse range of aquatic species, as well as see some spectacular bird life that includes the Chilean flamingo and black-crowned night heron.

Straddling the border between Bolivia and Peru, Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world, and it is a place steeped in legend. This, according to legend, was the birthplace of the Incas. It’s also said that the god Viracocha not only created the sun here, but that he went on to create the stars and the first people here too. This, and many other stories, are celebrated in the local folklore festivals that take place around the lake.

A highlight of any Lake Titicaca trip is seeing the floating islands. Scattered across the water, they are made of reeds cut by the local Uru people who often live on them in small thatched huts. Another popular stop is the city of Puno on the Peruvian shore. It was established in the late 17th century by the Spanish following the opening of nearby silver mines. Puno is notable not only for its interesting churches that date back to colonial times, but for the magnificent lake views to be had from the famous Kuntur Wasi viewpoint.
