Llachon can be reached by boat from Puno or by two-hour road-trip from Puno. Leaving any day from the local dock located on the shores of Lake Titicaca in the community of Llachon, we set out with a guide to the Island of your choice Amantani or Taquile.

Once in the water, you will marvel at the clarity of the lake, with views of the crystal blue-green waters as we paddle along the shore and out to the island of Taquile or Amantani – a unique sensation. We arrive at either island; you have a chance to walk around the village and the terraced landscape. A typical lunch on the shores of the lake before we paddle back to shore gives you plenty of photo opportunities.

Two Day Tour

Once we reach the embarkation point in Llachon, we have a briefing and receive the appropriate safety equipment. The group embarks on the three to four-hour sea-kayak adventures. Padding first along the coast of the peninsula we leave the point after an hour and cross the lake towards the island of Taquile. On arrival we disembark, store our kayaks on shore and spend the rest of the day after lunch exploring the island, overnight at a rural home overlooking the lake with beautiful views of the Cordillera Real. (There is also an option to return to Llachon and spend the night there)

We proceed to explore the coastline of the island by kayak and then head across the open water again returning to our starting point. Hopefully, with the prevailing wind behind us, we will complete this leg of the journey faster. On arrival, lunch at Llachon before returning to the mainland from the peninsula (transportation not included**).
