Nasca Lines & Ballestas Islands

2 days/1 night - from $690 per person
Take a 2 day/1 night excursion from Lima to see two of Peru’s ancient mysteries. In Ica, fly over the mysterious Nasca lines, preserved for nearly 2,000 years, and now a World Heritage Site. After an overnight in Ica, travel by motorboat to the beautiful Ballestas Islands, the biggest natural sanctuary along Peru’s shoreline. Over the hill you will see “El Candelabro,” an enigmatic geoglyph believed to date to around 200 B.C. Starting from $690 per person.
Day 1 - Lima/Ica (Flyover)
Transfer from Lima bus station to take the coach to Ica (approx. 4 hrs). Upon arrival, check in at the hotel. Transfer to the local airport to board a light aircraft and enjoy a flight over the mysterious Nasca Lines. During the flyover, you can spot figures drawn on the sandy soil. Representing animals and stylized plants, these figures have been preserved for almost 2,000 years. Rest of the day at leisure, or take an optional city tour. (La Hacienda Bahia Paracas/Hotel Paracas)
