This is a trip to an old and mystic land, Nazca. Starting early and going 279 miles south, we will head to the land of the eternal sun, Ica. We will make a stop to grab a local breakfast. Then we will go to Paracas and go boating to ballestas islands to get see and enjoy its enormous wildlife.
After that, we will head to a local winery to learn about the wine and Pisco tradition and of course taste all of them. We will pair them with best local dishes.
In the afternoon, we will go to the Mecca of sandboarding, Huacachina where we will get the equipment and the basic instruction to warm up and ride the dune buggy all around the extensive desert. We will ride some dunes to get conformable and safe on the sandboard. We will enjoy the sunset and have dinner at the oasis.
Next, we will go to Nazca and stay in a conformable local hotel. Early in the morning we will go for some action to the biggest dune of the world, this requires hiking to get to the peak of Cerro Blanco dune 6817 feet elevation. The views here are just spectacular, in between the coast and the Andes. We will enjoy a session of 2624 feet down, just amazing.
We will enjoy a delicious lunch and then head back to Lima.
