A LUXURY VACATION TO THE NAZCA LINES & PARACAS

To the south of Lima stretches the rugged coastline of Paracas and the Nazca Lines.

Made up of some 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures & 70 animal & plant drawings, the Nazca Lines, visible only from the air, are one of the most beguiling mysteries left by the ancient civilisations of Peru.

400kms south of the Capital, the high, windless plateau of the Nazca Desert, is home to vast 2,000-year-old geoglyphs. The giant runways and pictographs – a monkey, a shark, a condor, a spider – measuring as much as 200 metres across have been etched in the burning desert and are only appreciated from above. Needless to say, we have just the pilot.

TRAELLING DEEPER

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 birds, 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.
