Full description
Explore Huacachina, the only oasis in Peru, in a truly thrilling way. Ride over the sand dunes in a 4x4 buggy before then taking part in a sandboarding session. Start with pickup from Ica or Huacachina. Head to the oasis, and get the adrenaline pumping with a dune buggy ride. Feel as if you’re on a rollercoaster as you go up and down dunes of up to 30 meters in height. Take stops to snap photos of the desert landscape and the small lake surrounded by palm trees. Next, try your hand at sandboarding down those same dunes. This experience is suitable for all skill levels, as you’ll be learning the best techniques from your driver. Afterward visit one of the highlights of Huacachinha, the sunset over the desert. Enjoy incredible views of the sun going down, and find the best spot to snap photos with the help of your driver.

El tour fue increíble!! Chemo muchas gracias por todo!! Tuvimos un problema en carretera y nos atrasamos un poco, Chemo se encargó que nos recogieran, nos guardaron el equipaje y pudimos hacer el tour completo y sin problemas. El conductor (Yuca) fue excelente, muy comunicativo y amable. Esta es la segunda vez que hago el tour pero sin duda esta fue una experiencia inmejorable en todo sentido.

Really great experience. Well organized. We had good communication with the tour operator about our pick up (be aware, we were picked up earlier than we expected). We were taken directly to a meet up point, then led to the dune buggy. No confusion or lack of communication like we have experienced on a few tours. We were super pleased. The buggy driver was fantastic, it was wild and adventurous but I still felt safe. The sand boarding is super fun so I highly recommend it! If you go on your belly, it’s not scary at all. We also tried standing like a snow board and that was awesome. We were taken to a really great sunset spot, further into the dunes and away from other buggies. This created a really great viewpoint for the sunset and I’m glad we weren’t on any of the other tours closer in with an obstructed view. Our driver really cared that we were enjoying, he checked in often and helped take great photos. All tours are not created equal, choose this sunset tour!! It’s the best!

We went as a family and everyone worked so hard to make sure we had a great experience. The guide on the dunes was so kind and attentive to the children, he was helping them with their boards, getting them on and off, helped carry the boards for them. Spent extra care to ensure that he took us to Dunes that were empty so we could be alone. It was an experience full of memories that will last a life time. Highly highly recommend.
