Lake Titicaca

Sail at dazzling altitudes across South America’s largest lake

Lake Titicaca links Bolivia and Peru. The origins of the unusual name are unknown, but it may be a reference to a lead-coloured puma which features in an Aymara rock carving on the Island of the Sun.

There are a huge number of islands within Lake Titicaca. On the Peruvian side, many of them are man-made floating islands, inhabited by the indigenous Uru people. They consider themselves to be the ancestral owners of the lake, and we can take you to visit their islands close to the town of Puno.
 
Other islands of note include Amantani, a car-free island where you can stay with a Quechua family; and Taquile, a former Spanish prison colony now famed for its original textile art.

We can also arrange a hydrofoil trip right across Titicaca for a day or two in La Paz. There you can wander the cobbled streets and boutiques with a grandstand view of the lake.

Accommodation:
Titilaka Hotel

The tremendous Titilaka Hotel on Lake Titicaca… it sounds like the start of a tongue twister. You may well be tongue-tied when you stay here, but it will be on account of the astounding lakeside location of this Relais & Chateaux hotel.

Accommodation:
Spirit of the Andes Train Journey

The Spirit of the Andes revives the golden age of railway travel. There is no finer way to travel from Puno to Cusco than on this palatial train, where you can luxuriate onboard whilst admiring ever-changing views of the Sacred Valley and the Andes mountain range.
