Day 1 Lima

Transfer from your hotel in Lima at approximately noon to start your adventure at the Lima bus station. Arrive in Nazca where you will be met in the early evening.

Estimate travel time: 7.5 Hours Transfer from your hotel in Lima at approximately noon to start your adventure at the Lima bus station. Arrive in Nazca (approx. 7:30pm) where you will be met. Transfer to your hotel and overnight in Nazca. *If you are arriving by flight on Day 1 of the tour (i.e. you are not being picked up from your Lima hotel on Day 1), the latest arrival flight time into Lima is 7:00am.

Day 2 Nazca (1B)

City tour of Nazca, Chauchilla Cemetery and the ground viewing platform for the Nazca Lines. In the afternoon, take a light aircraft flight over the Nazca Lines for a panoramic view. The evening is free for leisure.

This morning take a city tour of Nazca, followed by a fascinating visit to the Pre-Inca desert cemetery site of Chauchila, with 1500 year-old mummies, bones and pottery on the desert floor. The tour also includes a visit to an artisan's workshop, where modern masters create Nazca style pottery, and a traditional gold-mining centre. This entire desert area was once the home for the ancient Paracas and the Nazca cultures, which preceded the Incas by more than half a millennium. In the late afternoon take an included flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines. Overnight in Nazca. The Nazca Lines are one of the world's greatest archaeological mysteries. The lines consist of patterns and pictures etched in the ground, crisscrossing a wide area of flat desert. Some lines measure up to 10 km (7.5 miles) in length, and yet remain perfectly straight. The depictions of birds, insects and animals are only recognizable from the air. Who drew the lines, and why, is something modern archaeologists can only theorize about, but current beliefs suggest that they may be part of complex agricultural calendar. From the ground we can make out very little, and the best view is from our light aircraft, from where we get a panoramic view.

Day 3 Lima (1B)

Visit local aqueducts before transferring to the Nazca bus station for your return journey to Lima. Evening arrival in Lima for a transfer to your hotel or the airport.
