A communion with nature and culture

The trip goes through the highlands of Bolivia, passing by Huarina, the first village on the shore of Lake Titicaca.

On route we will visit a workshop where Totora Reed boats are made by the youngest generations of the Limachi’s who participated in the world expeditions of Thor Heyerdahl. We cross the strait by boat and then continue driving to Copacabana. The landscape that combines views of Lake Titicaca with the Andean Range is certainly breathtaking (1-hour drive).
