Nazca Lines to Lima
The Nazca Lines to Lima Tour begins, of course, in the city of Nazca. It is here where the world-famous Nazca Lines are located. The upper reaches of the Atacama desert, astounding sand dunes, and the Pacific Ocean provide the backdrop for this tour. The heart and soul of the tour, though, are the numerous cultural and natural sites that we visit: the Lines in Nazca, the Ica Regional Museum, the Museo Larco in Lima, the Ballestas Islands, and the Paracas Natural Reserve in Ica. On a lighter note, there is a bit of time left over for some adventure in Huacachina: sand boarding, perhaps, or a sand-buggy ride out across the dunes!
