Isla del Sol Holidays

According to Inca legend, the sun god was born and rose from a crag in the rock on the Isla del Sol. Today the island's climate is harsh and dry. Inhabited by roughly 800 Aymara farmers and herders, visitors come to this island for its sweeping views and to check out the ruins of Inca temples still visible on the island.

Isla del Sol has been on the radar for several years with many travellers, due to its ideal location within Lake Titicaca, near the border of Peru. It’s an island steeped in history and is thought to have been the place where the first Inca was born, rising out of a crag in the limestone rock. Whilst there are over 80 Inca ruins on the island, the main draw is its idyllic location within Lake Titicaca, offering stunning views over the surrounding area. Spend a couple of days walking the island’s length, to truly appreciate the Isla del Sol experience.

Located in one of the world's high altitude lakes, the views of the surrounding mountains from the island are incredible, as well as the stars on a clear night and the sunrises. The island is considered a very spiritual place, and is worth visiting even if just of a day hike around its steep shores. There is supposed to be ruins of a sunken city off the shores of the island, but I dare you to jump in the freezing water to go verify.

The Isla del Sol is a great stopping over place on the journey between Peru and Bolivia. Amazing views of the lakes, some nice Inca ruins (though much smaller than Machu Picchu), and a relaxed vibe make this a great place to spend a couple of days.

Super île. Reste très touristique avec 10 Bol par personnes pour l’entrée sur l’île (en plus du prix du Bateau et et tour).
