1ST DAY: At 7:30am we'll pick you up at your La Paz hotel and begin our 2-day Lake Titicaca tour, heading out with your private guide and driver. First we'll head to the community of Copacabana (3 hour drive). Here you'll learn from your professional guide about the local Andean culture of the Quechua and Aymara people. After enjoying a delicious, local lunch, we'll visit the Basilica of the Virgin where you can observe its peculiar domes and blue tiles. In the interior, we'll observe the Dark Virgin of the Lake, which is believed to have caused many miracles. According to local legend if it is removed from the cathedral, the lake will rise and the city could be flooded. In the afternoon, after a short break in our 3 star Hotel, we can walk lightly through the streets of the city, observing handicrafts and local sales. If you're up to it we can take a short but difficult walk to Cerro Calvario, a traditional place that's important to many religious beliefs. From here we can observe beautiful views of the sunset on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Upon returning to our lodging, we can enjoy a private dinner. 2ND DAY: We'll get up early to enjoy breakfast at our hotel and enjoy a walk to watch the sunrise over Lake Titicaca. From there, your guide takes you to a private boat for an hour walk to Sun Island. Sun Island is considered the birthplace of the Inca civilization. In Yumani, on the south side of the island, climb the stone steps built by the Incas that lead to the Fountain of Life. Stroll through the archaeological ruins of the Pilko Kaina Inca Temple and observe how the locals still use pre-Inca farming methods on steep agricultural terraces.  If you are up for it, walk a trail that crosses over the ridge to the north side of the island. Visit the native village of Challapampa and its museum with Inca artifacts. Our tour continues with a visit to the Chincana labyrinth of stone. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, we'll embark on our private boat to return to the town of Copacabana, enjoying wonderful landscapes made by nature to our delight. Here we'll depart by private transfer back to La Paz
