OVERVIEW

This tour will start with a boat trip around the Ballestas islands, home to sea lions, pelicans, Peruvian boobies and Humboldt penguins. You will also see the local rich marine life, as well as the Paracas Candelabra geoglyph, an enormous hillside etching of mysterious origins.

The tour then goes up a gear at the incredible La Huacachina Oasis, known as the “Oasis of America” – the perfect place for sandboarding and white-knuckle dune buggy rides on sand dunes that stretch several hundred feet high. This thrilling tour will transport you deep into the desert and guarantees exhilarating thrills!
