This tour leaves daily and is run all year round. You can decide to end your tour with a transfer back to La Paz or with a transfer to Puno on the second day.
Take this 2 day tour and explore the beauties the Lake Titicaca has to offer on the Bolivian side. Copacabana is a picturesque small town on the shores of Lake Titicaca (Lago Titicaca). At an altitude of around 3800 meters the lake is said to be the highest navigable lake in the world and is a popular tourist destination. A boat journey away from the town of Copacabana will bring you to Isla del Sol (sun island) which according to Inca legend is the birthplace of the sun and also the birthplace of the first Incas. Steeped in history this Copacabana and Sun island tour is like taking a trip back in time and a great way to spend a relaxing few days.
