LAKE TITICACA & SUN ISLAND TOUR ITINERARY

DAY 1

Transfer & Tour of Copacabana on Lake Titicaca:
Pick up from the lobby of your hotel in La Paz – booked on your own. Transport to Copacabana (duration: 4 – 4 ½ hours, altitude: 3,840m / 12,595ft). Lunch at the outdoor terrace of the Rosario Hotel, overlooking Lake Titicaca.

After lunch, visit the Basilica, a stark, white, Moorish-looking building decorated with Portuguese-style blue tiles and rounded domes. Inside is the Shrine de la Virgen de Copacabana — a statue carved in the 15th century believed to be responsible for countless miracles. People believe that if she’s removed, Lake Titicaca will rise in rebellion and flood the town.

We recommend you take an optional walk (duration: 1½hours) through the 12 Stations of the Cross, as devout Catholics do during the Easter season. This great uphill walk will help you understand the layout of the town and the position of nearby islands. The views of Lake Titicaca, on the way up, are also worth the journey. It is worth noting that in contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana, you will also find Yatiris (Aymara masters) performing spiritual cleanings called “challas” or coca leaf readings.

Boat Ride & Sun Island Tour:
After your tour of Copacabana, transfer by boat to the Port of Pilkokaina in the southern part of Sun Island on Lake Titicaca–legendary birthplace of the Inca Empire. Here you will be welcomed by the La Estancia Eco-Lodge staff. Please note the lodge is situated at the top of the island and requires a smooth uphill walk with amazing views of the lake. You will visit the Inca ruins of Pilkokaina Palace along the way, (duration: 1- 1 ½ hours). From the lodge, behold an amazing sunset. Evening free.

Overnight at La Estancia Eco-Lodge.

DAY 2

Escalera del Inca Tour (Sun Island) & Transfer to Tiwanaku:
After enjoying breakfast at the Eco-lodge, walk down to the Port of Yumani and visit the Escalera del Inca, a stairway leading to the Inca Fountain, once believed to be a fountain of youth. This was a place where ceremonies dedicated to water and insemination of earth took place. After a short trek with wonderful panoramic views of Lake Titicaca, take a boat back to Copacabana (duration: 1 hour) to then be transferred to Tiwanaku (duration: 3 – 4 hours).

Half Day Tiwanaku Ruins and Transfer to La Paz:
After lunch, visit the Spiritual and Political Centre of the Tiwanaku Culture, which includes beautiful monumental stone buildings that survive in the protected archaeological zones. See the Kalasasaya Temple (Sun), the legendary Sun Gate, the Semi-subterranean temple (Earth), the Akapana Pyramid, the Puma Punku ceremonial center, as well as the museums where you will enjoy an impressive collection of objects and tools of ancient civilizations in addition to monumental monoliths (duration: 1 ½ – 2 hours). Transfer to your hotel in La Paz – booked on your own (duration: 1 ½ hours).

Evening free.
