Day 1: Flight over the Nazca Lines7:00am Depart from Lima by bus (Royal Service) to Nazca (approx. 6:30 hours). 1.30 pm Arrive at the city of Nazca. Then transfer to the airport for the flight over the Nazca Lines, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1994. In the area, there are at least 13 giant figures etched on the sandy soil that are only possible to appreciate from a small plane. During the flight over the Nazca Lines, we see the monkey, spider, hummingbird, a geometrical bird, whale, tree, etc. These mysterious lines seem like an astrological calendar, but even today it is still unknown how they were made. Return to the city of Ica by bus. Overnight in the city
Day 2: Ica - Huacachina Oasis - SandboardingAt: 6:30 am transfer from your hotel in Ica to the Paracas Port, where your the boat and tour guide are waiting . Around 7:30 am we take an excursion for 2.5 hours to the Ballestas Islands. We catch a delightful tourist boat. These islands are spectacular and are eroded into numerous arches and caves, which provide shelter for thousands of seabirds, some of which are very rare, and also sea lions. These islands are known as the “Galapagos of Peru”. The island is isolated from people so the wild life is not disturbed. As the boat approaches, you get closer to the amazing inhabitants including, pelicans, penguins, cormorants, Peruvian boobies, walruses, sea lions, turtles, dolphins, whales, etc. Along the way we can appreciate Paraca´s Candelabra, a mysterious ancient etching on the sandy slope, perhaps a location signal. Lunch in the port of Paracas or at Ica City. The city of Ica is Peru’s premier wine centre. At a designated time we will take you on the Ica City Tour, where we visit the Regional Museum of Luren, Wine Cellar, Oasis of Huacachina and sandboarding. Transfer to the bus terminus to return to Lima.
