Lake Titicaca Day Trips from La Paz

Lake Titicaca Day Trips from La Paz

The bright-blue water of Lake Titicaca mirrors a big sky, snow-frosted peaks, and traditional villages in an area that was sacred to the Inca, whose ancient stone temples and farming terraces are preserved in the dry air of the Bolivian altiplano. Here’s how to explore this scenic destination on a day trip from La Paz.

 

Group Tours

A cost-effective alternative to finding your own way to Lake Titicaca, group tours coordinate round-trip transport from La Paz with activities such as cruises, walking tours, and trips to Sun Island (Isla del Sol). If you’re considering a trip to Sun Island, tours are an especially convenient option, as tour operators are able to secure a place on the boats that make the trip.

 

Private Tours

With more-flexible itineraries than group options, private tours of Lake Titicaca guarantee the full attention of your guide. You can cover the key attractions in Lake Titicaca—favorites include Sun Island and the lakeside town of Copacabana—with more time to browse, try the famous local trout, or take photos. If you’re hoping to visit the archaeological site of Tiwanaku, private tours can combine the two destinations, saving on overall driving time.

 

Things to Know

  • At 12,510 feet (3,813 meters), Lake Titicaca is even higher in elevation than La Paz. If you’re not yet acclimatized, plan to drink plenty of water, move slowly, and consider medication to alleviate symptoms.
  • When cruising to Sun Island from Copacabana, the finest views are from the open-air deck on top of the boat, but the high-altitude sun can be deceptively powerful. Bring a brimmed hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen to protect yourself.
  • The drive from La Paz to Copacabana is at least three hours, and day trips last upwards of eight hours.
  • Many tours include pickup and drop-off at hotels in La Paz.
