Prepare to switch off from the modern world on the secluded Bolivian island of Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca. The name translates to 'Island of the Sun'—and for good reason. Incan legend states the sun was born here and would rise every morning over this very spot. It is considered to be one of the most sacred sites in South America due to its many ruins from pre-Columbian times. Isla del Sol is the largest of three islands in Lake Titicaca, spanning around five miles long and four miles wide. The only way to get around Isla del Sol is on foot, following a network of rocky trails (the island has no motorised vehicles).
Discover the sacred rock of the Incas (Titikala), the Inca palace of Pilkokaina and the villages of Challapampa and Yumani. Visiting these archaeological sites is just part of enjoying a trip to Isla del Sol. You can also swim or snorkel in its beautiful glistening bays, enjoy breath-taking sunsets over Lake Titicaca from the shore, and meet friendly locals at every turn, making it hard not to fall in love with this beautiful island.
