According to the Inca Mithology, from Titikaka's lake, the god Viracocha created the sun, the stars and the first people: discover this magical place and prepare to live a memorable full day! With a millenarian history, the lake and the Sun Island conserve its ancestral traditions from the Inca period. Take a Cruise and live with locals the best of their incredible culture.

Cruise to Sun Island's isolated Challapampa Village, while enjoying lunch on board. Take advantage of this opportunity to interact with one of the most unspoiled indigenous Titikaka villages through an innovative program organized with the local community visiting their own museum, chapel, school, a typical house, sailing in their vessels to an Inca holy temple and walking through Inca trails.

Then you will have a delicious dinner in the catamaran, where you will spend the night in cabins that have view to the monumental lake and private facilities.
