Titilaka is a remote Experience Lodge located on a private peninsula on the shores of Lake Titicaca, Peru. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, it allows guests to indulge in the splendor of the unique and unspoiled Andean landscape where sky, land and water come together. The property's contemporary design integrates with the natural environment and makes it a welcoming place while respecting its Inca origins. Consisting of 18 suites, spread over 3 floors all with lake views, it offers a pleasant stay where you can alternate between relaxation and a wide variety of excursions by boat, mountain bike, foot or car. The most impressive are exploring the Andean communities on the islands of Taquile or Uros, visiting the archaeological sites of Chullpas de Sillustani and the splendid colonial churches in the towns of Juli, Pomata and Lampa. Guides promote local traditions, customs and culture protecting their preservation. Titilaka is committed to reducing its ecological footprint through the use of hydropower and natural gas and by sourcing from local producers. The lodge actively collaborates in the implementation of various projects for the socio-economic development of the local community, in which it is possible to participate during excursions.
This is one of the most impressive excursions offered by the lodge and consists of a visit to the floating islands of Uros and Taquile. You will spend the entire day exploring the Uros-Aymara communities with their typical reed constructions and their ancestral techniques used to make rafts. In Taquile, on the other hand, you will meet the weavers who made famous Quechua textiles recently included by UNESCO among the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Stop for lunch in Puno and then continue the excursion with a visit to Boli.
The bicycle excursion through the fields of Platería offers an unforgettable experience under the blue skies of Puno. You will cross different terrains riding along rural paths along the shores of the lake to observe locals, sometimes in traditional dress, intent on their daily activities. This is a free-air activity where you decide the rhythm and the direction and can last from 1 to 3 hours.
