Request a packed box breakfast from your hotel the day before your tour. Driving for about 3.5 hours to the picturisque resort town of Paracas. Once at the bay port, we board our motorized boat towards the National Park island of Ballestas. Along the way we stop for pictures of the Candelabro, a depression on the desert floor similar to those found on the Nazca Lines.
Continuing on our tour, we arrive at the bio-diverse island of Ballestas. Take every opportunity to capture the countless marine flora that calles this island home. Look forward to spotting sealions, penguins and a wide variety of bird life. The island wall is covered in bird poop. This bird poop belongs to the special Guano bird and its collected once a year and exported for use in the manufacture of explosives. After feasting our eyes on the all the spicies that grace this island, we head back to port for our next excursion.
Later, we departure from Paracas to Nazca for a 3 hours drive in our private van towards Nazca. Once in Nazca, you will be led to the local airdrome from where you will take a small cessna plane to fly over the Nazca Lines. Who made these lines and the reason why they did it is still unknown and is one of the biggest mysteries in human history. The lines are geometric shapes that can best be seen for the air. The measure up to 1.100 meters in straight uninterrupted lines. Some of the figure include the hummingbird, lizard, dogs and plants among many other things. The Nazca Lines have been declared a World Heritage site. For this aerial tour, you will board a small Cessna single-engine aircraft , which has spacious room for 5 people, each person with a window seat.
We make a quick stop for lunch before driving to the quaint desert oasis of Huacachina, a few minutes from the town Ica. Arriving in the afternoon, depending on the season, just at the sun is getting ready to set. Our guide gets us suited and booted for our thrilling buggy experience towards our sandboarding tour. If you would like to Ski down the dunes, please request in advance. The buggy tour is full of speed and adrenelin, not for the faint hearted. We stop for our sandboarding on dunes that reach 500m/1600ft for the perfect thrill.
Driving through a number of dunes, we settle at the top of the dunes for unparrelled sunset views, overlooking the town. After, enjoying sundowners we get back on our buggy for a return to Haucachina. You have time to stroll through the town, take pictures by the emerald lake and shop for some souvenirs.
Finally, we drive back to Lima for a 22:00 hrs estimated arrival time. Drop off at your hotel is included.
