Your tour leaves from Lima mid-morning and you arrive to Ica in the early afternoon. It is a 4 hour drive and upon arriving you will have lunch at one of the many restaurants in the area, visit the museum in Ica which is host to centuries old mummies along with other native artifacts, and then, if desired, check out one of the local bodegas to see the Pisco making process from grape to bottle and also get to sample Pisco, a type of grape brandy exclusive to the region.
At 3:30pm you will be in the oasis town of El Huacachina, getting ready to start your off-road adventure. This is when you go on a high adrenaline dune buggy and sandboarding tour for 2 hours in the dunes above the oasis and watch the sun go down from the seemingly endless dunes.
After the sunset you will return to your 3 star hotel near the oasis in El Huacachina. After showering up and relaxing a bit your night will be free to walk around this little town and check out the restaurants and nightlife.
Early the next morning you will get up for breakfast which is included with your hotel stay and then drive 1 hour out to Paracas Nature Reserve. You will be at the dock by 8am ready to get aboard the boat and see the nature reserve from the ocean perspective. The Ballestas Islands are home to numerous species of birds, sea lions, and many other sea creatures.
After lunch you will either head back to the oasis for a relaxing evening, or drive to Nazca to allow for a bit more sleep in the morning…whichever you would prefer.
In the morning you will get up early and after breakfast head to the Nazca airport where you will enjoy a breathtaking 45 minute flight over the famously mysterious Nazca Lines.
You will then begin your journey back to Lima stopping in Chincha for one of the best lunches you will ever have, and then continue your drive back to Lima arriving in the late afternoon.
