    What to Expect
    Experience a bird’s eye view flying by Cessna above one of the great creations of the ancient world, the Nazca Lines, on this 11-hour tour leaving from Lima. Learn the fascinating myths about the creation of this UNESCO World Heritage site, unexplained by scientists and archaeologists to this day. 

    Start your Nazca excursion with a 7am pickup from your hotel in San Isidro or Miraflores, proceeding by luxury Mercedes van with your guide towards the Peruvian city of Paracas for your flight. The drive takes about 4 hours each way.

    Arrive at the airport, climb aboard your Cessna plane and take a seat by the window (every seat has one) to begin your flight. Soar above the arid plains of the Nazca Plateau a remote desert area that is home to this famous archaeological site. 

    Gaze in wonder as your pilot loops you around each of the site’s unique designs, allowing time for a closer look. While the creation of the lines remains a mystery, many experts believe the Nazca people designed them some time between 400 and 650 AD. 

    The majority of which depict various animals and symbolic events from Nazca culture. The site’s 300-foot (90m) monkey, for example, has just 9 fingers, which is believed to represent the 9 months of drought that occur in the area each year. Meanwhile, the spider design is thought to represent water and fertility, as the creatures frequently appeared before rainstorms. The site’s flamingo, condor and hummingbird are thought to relate to the winter and summer solstices, as each bird’s beak aligns with the sunrise and sunsets on these dates.

    Take time over the course of your 1.5 hour aerial exploration to capture plenty of pictures, returning to the Paracas airport when the time is up. Feel free to grab lunch at your own expense in town before the return trip back to your Lima hotel.
