Explore the large dunes of Huacachina Oasis that invite you to practice adventure sports such as sandboarding. After pickup, go to Huacachina to see its beautiful oasis. Relax in the lap of nature surrounded by beautiful landscapes. Enjoy your day in the desert, taking a dune buggy tour and practicing sandboarding. Soak in the spectacular landscape formed by a lagoon of emerald green waters and large dunes. Then, head to Nazca province to fly around the famous and enigmatic Nazca Lines, an important archaeological site in Peru. The mysterious geoglyphs at the UNESCO World Heritage Site range from geometric shapes and swirls to a hummingbird and monkey. Observe the most important etchings, that likely date from 500 BC and 500 AD. Have a beautiful view of the land...
Enjoy a spectacular trip over the desert to see the mysterious Nazca Lines. Discover monkeys, spiders, and hummingbirds among other large figures, which you will observe from the sky in your plane with the help of your experienced pilot. Learn about the meaning of these shapes and the people who created them from your tour guide who will be there to assist you. Your flight will be approximately 30 minutes and passes over the Nazca desert's main geoglyphs. This place is also home to marine fossils of up to 150 million years old, which is the evidence that this site was once filled with water. After this magical day, you will be taken back to your accommodation in Nazca with wonderful new memories.

The pick up from hotel was a bit late. That did not matter because the flight then started over 2 hours later. For safety reasons and competitive reasons - on the other hand, you can not say anything. But when it was time - it was a professional implementation. I have a stable stomach and I fly a lot, but the many steep turns that were made to make the drawings look better hit my stomach. And my son too. This has tarnished my personal feelings and sensitive people have to be aware that it is not necessarily good ;-)
Flight was great, time was changed at very short notice one evening before. We thought that was bad
