What to expect

Very early in the morning, you will pick up from the hotel, to start the Nazca Lines air tour. Enjoy the trip from Lima (four and a half hours) until reaching Ica's airfield. Along the way, you will enjoy a breakfast box and will be accompanied by a bilingual guide (Spanish and English). The Nazca lines location is in the Ica Region, in the Palpa and Nazca valleys, 280 miles south of Lima, and near the Pacific Ocean. They lie at the edge of the western Andes at 2000 feet above sea level.

These impressive figures are between 165 and 985 feet long. The Nazca Lines mystery lies in the complexity of the process used to create them on the ground; they are very stylized and each is drawn with a single unbroken line. They were designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994.

Arriving at the airfield, you will have a short briefing in an audiovisual room, and then you will take the Nazca Lines flight where you will be able to see these large-scale drawings that can only be seen from the air. During your 1-hour flight, you will admire the most recognized figures such as the hummingbird, the monkey, the spider, the whale, among others. The Nazca Lines images were first mentioned by Spanish colonizers and explorers during the XVI century but they were mistaken as trail markers and roads. It wasn't until the XX century that scholars started researching them after the first flights flown over and came to realize that they weren't simple lines but figures of animals, insects, humans, and plants.

Finally, you will visit Huacachina, an oasis located in the middle of the Ica's desert. After enjoying a delicious lunch in a local restaurant, you will head back to Lima.
