Ballestas Islands, oasis in the Ica Desert and the Nazca Lines

Ballestas Islands, oasis in the Ica Desert and the Nazca Lines
Day 1: Along the southern beaches to Paracas
We travel from Lima along the coast to the bay of Paracas. On our way we stop at the nicest beaches to enjoy the summer and enjoy some great seafood. We spent the night in the bay of Paracas.
 
Day 2: Ballestas Islands and sandboarding
In the morning we go on a speed boat with our nature guide and navigate along the Paracas peninsula to the Ballestas Islands. Here you will be able to see hundreds of sea lions, penguins and fantastic birds. Then we will travel further south to the desert of Ica.  On the way we will visit a local winery and Pisco distillery. After seeing how Pisco is made and sampling some we continue our route to an oasis called “La Huacachina”, where we go off-roading and sand boarding in the dunes, It’s unforgettable! We will see an amazing sunset in the desert and enjoy a nice barbecue in the oasis. We spent the night in a nice hotel in the oasis.
Day 3: Nazca
Today we travel a few more hours south to Nasca. We will fly in mini- airplanes over the mysterious Nazca lines. A monkey, a hummingbird, a spider and a tree, are some of the many figures you can observe on the desert floor. In the evening we can try a Pachamanca, food cooked in a very old, traditional style.
 
Day 4: Return to Lima
