You will fly over the enigmatic Nazca lines. These enormous geoglyphs sketched on the sands for centuries on the Ica desert in southern Peru, were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994.
Its antiquity and large-scale designs, visible mainly from the air, have generated significant intrigue and several theories that seek to reveal the mystery of its creation.
You will explore the Paracas Desert, the driest in the world and part of the legendary Dakar Rally route, by four-wheel drive. In addition, have fun sliding down the dunes on sandboards.
After contemplating how the sun dyes the dunes with fire red at sunset, you will enjoy a picnic in the middle of the desert, a luxurious experience where the only participants will be you and nature.
Board a luxury yacht and visit the Ballestas Islands, home to abundant marine life. Get carried away by the sound of the sea lions and observe, from up close, the Humboldt penguins and various guano birds.
You will explore Paracas National Reserve riding e-bikes, the only marine reserve on the coast of Peru with such great marine biodiversity. This region was also a cradle of ancient civilizations. The archaeological sites show how the ancient Peruvians adapted to these areas with a simple lifestyle, dedicated to fishing and collecting shellfish.
This portion of arid sands embedded against the sea is one of the best-kept treasures of the Peruvian coastline
Visit the old Queirolo ranch located in the Ica Valley, and immerse ourselves in 400 hectares of vineyards and a history that began in 1877, with the arrival of Santiago Queirolo to Peru, from Genoa, Italy.
Together with a sommelier, you will taste the best Peruvian wines and piscos and delight your palate with an outdoor lunch at the vineyard of the hotel, an old Republican mansion.
