The Nasca Lines are one of the main attractions on this trip, just under 2 hours return flight from Pisco airport( Including viewing of around 30mins). The Nazca Lines are the most outstanding group of geoglyphs in the world. Etched in the surface of the desert pampa sand about 300 hundred figures made of straight lines, geometric shapes and pictures of animals and birds – and their patterns are only clearly visible from the air. In the afternoon, continue by bus to sand dunes of Ica and its oases for a sand-boarding excursion. Return to Paracas for overnight.
We will also have the chance to visit the Ballestas Islands. These spectacular islands, eroded into many caves and arches, provide shelter for thousands of seabirds and hundreds of sea-lions. The islands are home to over 150 species of marine bird including the Humboldt penguin, cormorants, boobies and pelicans.
