Travelers embarking on luxury tours of Lake Titicaca, the highest commercially navigable lake on earth and the merging point for more than 25 rivers, often remark on its vastness with awe. From certain points, the lake can appear endless, resembling a strangely calm ocean.
The lake is steeped in tradition and culture, and many legends are associated with it. For the Incas, for instance, Titicaca was a sacred site, the supposed birthplace of the first two Incas – Manco Cápac and Mama Ocllo – who went on to found the Inca Empire. Kuoda can arrange private tours of Lake Titicaca during which guides can fill you in on myths associated with this place. Kids especially will be enthralled by the captivating tales, making it a particularly fitting activity for a Bolivia family trip.
Kuoda can also organize exclusive tours to Bolivia’s most fascinating island communities. In total, about 41 islands are located on the lake, many of which offer hiking and dramatic lake panoramas as well as a glimpse into the past. Among them are the man-made floating islands of Uros, which are constructed from reeds, and the Islands of the Moon and the Sun, sacred sites for the Incas. The setting-off point for the Bolivian islands is Copacabana, a shore-side settlement with a small-town vibe and several upmarket accommodations perfect for a Lake Titicaca, Bolivia travel experience.
