Ballestas islands and Nazca Lines 3 Days / 2 Nights

lineas-de-nazca

Ballestas islands and Nazca Lines 3 Days 2 Nights, on this compact tour we discover the little known marine hotspot of the Ballestas Islands, a fantastic area to spot Sea Lions (which occur here in their thousands). Fascinating marine birdlife found here includes Humboldt Penguins, Pelicans, Peruvian Booby’s and Cormorants, which breed here in huge numbers. While on the desert coast we have a stunning introduction to Peru’s pre-colonial history, flying over the enormous mysterious Nazca Lines – geometric figures and images of animals echoed into the landscape more than 2000 years ago – an awesome site, the purpose of the Nazca Lines remains a mystery to this day.

Itinerary

Itinerary:

Day 1: Lima to Pisco.

You will get picked up at your accommodation in Lima at around 6.30 / 7.00 (time changes depending on location) and transfer to bus station of Cruz Del Sur and then bus transfer from Lima to Paracas (4 hrs). The good paved road to the south offer great views of the desert and coast line, green and large valley as Asia, Mala, Cañete, Chincha and Pisco.
Reception at the bus stop of Paracas and then check in at the hotel and around 2pm, (We have a nice option), visit  the national reserve of Paracas (beaches, cathedral rock formation, visitor center, flamingos, and marine fossils). This tour takes around 3 hours including nice walk along the beach and then return to your hotel.

  • Accommodation at a selected hotel in Paracas.
  • Meals included: None.

Day 2: Ballestas Islands and nazca.

Following breakfast we will be privately transported to Pisco’s seafront where we board our boat for a voyage out to the windswept Ballestas Islands, home to huge populations of marine wildlife. The islands have been spectacularly eroded by the sea forming steep cliffs and huge arches – perfect homes for some of the eastern Pacific’s largest seabird colonies. Pelicans, Peruvian Booby’s, Red Legged and Guanay Cormorants all find sanctuary here. At the water’s edge thousands of noisy sealions compete for space with Humboldt Penguins – all evidence of the richness of the cold waters carried up from the Antarctic by the powerful Humboldt Current.
We board our bus and continue down the southwards towards the town of Nazca. We arrive in Nazca in the late afternoon – a verdant green valley surrounded by desert hills and the highest Sand dunes on the planet.

  • Accommodation at a selected hotel in Nazca.
  • Meals included: Breakfast.

Day 3: Nazca Lines.

After breakfast at 7:00am we are transferred privately to the local airport were we board our small plane for our low altitude flight over the Nazca Lines. The lines, etched into the desert over hundreds of years in a process beginning more than 2000 years ago can only be appreciated from above, and our flight provides a remarkable perspective on these geometrical shapes and animal forms, many of which are hundreds of meters across. The images, whose exact purpose has never been proved include birds, a monkey, a killer whale and a spider.
After the excursion you will travel by bus from Nazca Lines back to Lima.
