Itinerary

Sandboarding & Nazca Lines Adventure 4D/3N

Day 1: Lima - Paracas, Peru

Transfer across to Paracas by bus and visit the Paracas National Reserve to see beautiful cliffs, beaches and wildlife.

Explore Paracas
Today, you'll take the regular bus towards the small city of Paracas (3 ½ hours approx. – 260 kilometers distance). Once in Paracas, you'll head to your hotel on your own. In the afternoon, you'll visit Paracas Reserve. The name of this beautiful place is derived from a Quechua word meaning "sand rain" probably due to the strong winds that hit the evenings here. The Paracas National Reserve is also very important since in their inhabit waters abundant quantities of zooplankton and phytoplankton, which allows a variety of fish that allow industrial and artisanal fisheries. This is a very important activity in the town. The Paracas National Reserve is located in an area of 335,000 hectares and is considered one of the most important ecosystems on the planet. During our visit we will see the beautiful cliffs and beaches along this tour (red beach beach Yumaque, lagunilla).

Day 2: Paracas - Huacachina, Peru

Today, you'll head out on an excursion of the Ballestas Islands, stopping to see The Candelabro etched on the desert floor hundreds of years ago. Spot wildlife like native birds and sealions and the shy Humboldt penguins. You'll then head to Huacachina.

Ballestas Islands (B)
At 8:00am, you'll take the excursion to the Ballestas Islands. At the dock you will board a speedboat equipped with life vests and comfortable seats. At this point it is advisable to wear a good jacket or wind breakers as it gets very windy once the boat gets in motion. You will leave then towards the Ballestas Islands. Along the way you will see the famous figure known as The Candelabro, an enigmatic design etched on the desert floor hundreds of years ago. Afterwards you will continue to The Ballestas Islands. These islands are inhabited by an amazing marine life, with over 200 types of migratory and resident birds, including Peruvian Pelicans, Belcher's gulls, Humboldt penguins, guanay cormorants, red-legged cormorants, Inca terns, Peruvian boobies, turkey vultures, among others. In addition, you will also see around the Islands hundreds of sea lions resting at the beaches, sleeping on the rocks or swimming nearby. The Islands also provide shelter to the shy Humboldt penguins which are usually seen at the entrances of small caves near the cliffs. After touring around the islands for about 1 hour you will return to the harbor. In the afternoon, take the regular bus towards the city of Ica (1 ¼ hours approx. – 75-kilometer distance). Once in Ica, our driver will meet you at the bus station and will transfer to your hotel located in the Huacachina area.

Day 3: Huacachina, Peru

Go on an exhilarating sand buggy ride and take thrilling rides on a basic sand-board. Watch a breathtaking sunset over the vast desert landscape and have the chance to take photos in the golden twilight before racing back to Huacachina.

Sand Buggy Ride (B)
Begin your fun-filled trip with an exhilarating sand buggy ride. Cruise to the top of 500 meter high sand dunes and go rocketing down the slopes in this recreational vehicle. This roller coaster ride of 360's, sharp turns and steep hills will get your adrenaline pumping before you take your first shot at sand boarding. You will have the opportunity to sand-board on 3-4 different dunes so you can try your luck. You will take thrilling rides on a basic sand-board by laying face first on the board and letting yourself fly down the dune to see how far (and fast) you can go. Cheer on your mates and don't let anyone shy away from this unforgettable experience. Lastly, you will admire the breathtaking sunset over the vast desert landscape and have the chance to take photos in the golden twilight before racing back to Huacachina. (Experienced sand-boarders can choose to upgrade to a professional sand-board with boots and bindings for an extra cost of $8 USD paid locally. Upgrades are subject to availability. To reserve, please contact us in advance with your shoe size. On the day of the tour, you will need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure for your fitting. For beginners we recommend the laying down option as it is much easier and lots of fun!)

Day 4: Huacachina - Lima, Peru

Transfer towards the city of Nazca and board a light small aircraft to fly over the mysterious Nazca lines - geoglyphs and geometric line clearings in the Peruvian desert. You'll then take the return bus to Lima.

Flight over Nazca Lines (B)
In the morning, you'll be transferred to the bus station to take the regular bus towards the city of Nazca (2 ½ hours approx. – 150 kilometers distance). Once in Nazca, you'll be met and transferred to the aerodrome Maria Reiche to fly over the Nazca lines by light small aircraft for 30 minutes. The Nazca lines are located in the desert, a high arid plateau that stretches between Nazca and Palpa on the pampa (a large flat area of southern Peru). The Nazca lines are geoglyphs and geometric line clearings in the Peruvian desert and are still an enigma. Since their discovery, these lines have inspired fantastic explanations from ancient gods, a landing strip for returning aliens, a celestial calendar created by the ancient civilization, used for rituals probably related to astronomy, or clans who made up the population and to determine through ritual their economic functions held up by reciprocity and redistribution, or a map of underground water supplies. Flying over the area you can marvel looking at the perfect shape of animals, flowers, plants, objects, and anthropomorphic figures of colossal proportions made with well-defined lines. After the overflight, you'll be transferred back to the bus station to take the regular bus back to Lima (7 ½ hours approx. – 455 kilometers distance).
