Nazcu Lines Flight Fly over the World Heritage-listed geoglyphs. The high, arid plateau of the Nasca Desert reaches across more than 50 miles (80 km); its isolation and dry climate has helped to preserve the lines over time. The exact origins and significance of these hundreds of figures are unclear, but it’s believed that the designs were created by the Nasca people between 400 and 650 AD. Fly over several of the individual designs, many of which are animals; your pilot will let you know which designs you're about to see; the monkey, spider, flamingo, condor and hummingbird represent the winter and summer solstices; their beaks point to the location of the sunrises and sunsets on the solstice days in Nasca. During the 1.5-hour flight, you'll have plenty of time to view the one-of-a-kind artwork with great photo ops from the air!
3:00 pm - Peru Standard Time
TOUR BUGGIES FROM PARACAS Pick up and transfer to Km 253 of the Panamericana Sur, where we will board the tubulars, which will be conducted by expert pilots, to start the walk through the sand desert, appreciating different shapes, types and sizes of Dunes.
