DAY 1 – Lima – Paracas – Ballestas Islands – Huacachina – Sandboarding – Night in Huacachina

Pick up is at 6:00 AM from your hotel in Lima (time changes depending on location – if you are out of the city centre we will arrange a meeting point). We drive for about 3.5 hours to the picturesque resort town of Paracas, making a quick stop along the way for a scrumptious breakfast (not included). 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 etching on the desert floor similar to those found at Nazca.

Continuing on our tour, we arrive at the bio-diverse island of Ballestas. Taking every opportunity to capture the countless marine flora that call this island home.Today you will be spotting sealions, penguins and a wide variety of bird life. The islands are covered in bird poo. This bird poop is special Guano and its collected once a year and exported for use in the manufacture of explosives. After feasting our eyes on the all the spicies of this island, we head back to port for our next excursion.

Later, we start our short 2 hour drive to the town of Ica. Nettled at the foot of the town is a number of Bodegas for our Pisco and wine tasting tour. We visit 3 wineries, learning about the distillery process of Pisco and wine and enjoy a few samples. Straight after our tasting, head over to a local restuarant for our delictable lunch. In the afternoon travel to the desert oasis of Haucachina.

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 and sandboarding tour. If you would like to ski down the dunes, please request in advance. The buggy tour is full of speed and adrenaline, not for the faint hearted. We stop for our sandboarding on dunes that reach 500m/1600ft for the perfect long lasting thrills.

Driving through a number of dunes, at the top of the dunes enjoy unparrelled sunset views, overlooking the town. After, enjoying the sunset we get back on our buggy to Haucachina. You have time to stroll through the town, take pictures by the emerald lake and shop for some souvenirs before heading over for our gourmet dinner. After filling up on dinner, we check in at our hotel and rest for the next day of adventure.

DAY 2 – Huacachina – Nazca – Nazca Lines Flight – Return to Lima

We start our day at 8:30am and travel from Huacachina to Nazca airport. Once at the airport do your check-in (original passport is required) start the amazing flight adventure over world-famous Nazca Lines. Who made these lines and the reason why is still unknown and is one of the biggest mysteries in the Peruvian human history. The lines are geometric shapes that can best be seen for the air. They measure up to 1,100 meters in straight uninterrupted lines. Some of the figures include the hummingbird, lizard, dogs and plants among many other things. The impressive Nazca Lines have been declared an Unesco World Heritage site.
The flight lasts for about 35 minutes to Nazca before heading back to Huacachina. Upon arrival in Huaccachina we have time to grab lunch and to shop for souvenirs before returning on private transportation to Lima. Arrival in Lima is estimated for 10:00pm, where we drop you off at your hotel.
