Day 1 Lima – Paracas – Nazca

Transfer to the station. Depart by bus for an estimated 3.5-hour ride to Paracas Peninsula. Upon arrival, transfer to Pisco airport for a special flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines. Enormous figures traced on the desert sands and preserved for almost 2000 years that can be seen only from the air, and distributed in a huge labyrinth of lines, trapezoids, triangles, animals such as an enormous monkey or a hummingbird with a wingspan of 100m, are still an enigma. Transfer to your hotel in Paracas and rest of the day free to visit the National Reserve, take an adventurous dune buggy tour or just relax.

Day 2 Paracas – Lima

Morning boat ride to Ballestas Islands, inhabited by boobies, sea lions, penguins and seals which showcases wild sealife of the area. From the sea, appreciate the spectacular “candelabro” (chandelier), etched on the desert sands. Transfer to the station and return to Lima by bus. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel.

Optional:

This tour can be done in private basis with two-day car and guide at disposal. You may spend one more night in Paracas and relax by the sea.
