What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Lake Titicaca, Copacabana and Sun Island from La Paz

Visit a lakeside village and see the traditional totora reed boats!

Emerge early and depart from your La Paz hotel in a spacious, private vehicle. During the 3-hour drive to Copacabana, listen to engaging narratives of Andean culture and Incan legend as you pass some of Bolivia’s most spectacular scenery.

Feel your excitement heighten as Lake Titicaca, one of South America’s largest lakes, creeps into your periphery. Stop at a quaint lakeside village and see indigenous inhabitants practice the ancient tradition of boat-building using totora reeds, then board a ferry departing to Copacabana. 

On arrival, head straight to an ancient basilica shrouded in mystery and legend; the popular pilgrimage site harbors the Dark Virgin of the Lake, a statue reputed to be responsible for many miracles. Next, browse a selection of artisan stalls for special souvenirs then feast upon a fulfilling 3-course lunch in a restaurant specially recommended by your guide. 

Revitalized, climb aboard a private chartered motorboat and cruise to Sun Island, an exquisite land mass said to be the birthplace of Inca civilization. Disembark on the south side of the island and follow in the footsteps of ancient Incas by climbing 200 steps to the reputed fountain of youth. Wander past the atmospheric ruins of an Incan temple then return to the mainland for the journey back to your hotel in La Paz. 

With advance notice, you can disembark at Puno rather than La Paz for an additional fee.
