Tours Uros floating islands (1/2 day)

The Floating Islands of the Uros on Titicaca lake are located 10 km from the City, 25 minutes by boat from the Port of Puno, the tour lasts 3 hours.

The Uros were the first inhabitants of Lake Titicaca to create Artificial Islands made of Totora (Lake Aquatic Plant), and weave with this plant their islands, houses, boats, mattresses to sleep; It also serves as a fundamental source for the diet of people as they can eat the white part of the totora, peeling it like a banana.

You can also make the typical raft of totora (boat) from island to island contracting directly with the native.
