To the south of Lima stretches the rugged Paracas coastline. Made up of some 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures and 70 animal and plant drawings, the Nazca Lines, visible only from the air, are one of the most beguiling mysteries left by the ancient civilisations of Peru.
To fully appreciate their scale, we organise overflights with an archaeologist guide.
Nearby, the Ballestas Islands are a protected area rich with bird and marine life where one can see many different species of bird, sea lions and penguins.
The coastline enjoys a dry climate and is a great place to spend some time relaxing after exploring the highland areas during a luxury Peru tour.
