Copacabana Sun Island 2 - 2 Days

Copac_5

Our 2-day excursion to Copacabana and the Island of the Sun is a great way to have a glimpse at this fascinating part of Bolivias natural and cultural history.

Lake Titicaca is one of the worlds largest, and certainly the highest of its size, freshwater lakes at an altitude of 3810 meters above sea level. Renowned for its agricultural heritage (both potatoes and quinoa are believed to have been domesticated here), its rich cultural history (twin Inca brothers are believed to have risen from the lake near the Island of the Sun and thrown a lance to where Cusco was developed) and its incredible views, Titicaca should not be missed.

Our trip to Lake Titicaca sets off from La Paz and arrives in Copacabana at lunch time. After fresh lake trout on the beach, well take you far of the beaten path to Jiska Qota, on a beautiful country walk along the coast just outside of “Copa.” After the walk, youll have some free time for handicraft shopping and rest.

On Day 2, we take you out to the Island of the Sun for a 3-5 hour hike across the island, where you can visit pre-Colombian ruins, have a picnic lunch and take in the spectacular views of the lake, the island itself and the snowy peaks of the Cordillera Real to the east. We return to Copacabana in the afternoon and then take off for La Paz, arriving about 8pm.
