The Uro Islands are floating islands made of reed, situated in Lake Titicaca on the Peruvian Altiplano.

Understand

People actually live here, moving around, always rebuilding their island-homes.

Get In

  • Dozens of agencies in Puno will arrange a visit with a guide, -often in combination with a daytrip to Isla Taquile.
  • To go independent, be at the harbour around seven and ask around for boats going.

A new option offered is accomodation on one of the islands called Qananpacha. The rooms are equipped with double bed and made all out of reed, also available is a restaurant and a post office. Not all tour agencies stop at this island, so better contact the hospedaje directly to make reservations: 951-835264, 950-951489. Also a pickup from puno harbor can be arranged.
