Soar over the mysterious Nazca lines on this enthralling, limited participation tour.
From the pier it's a 30-minute drive to the Pisco Airport where you will board your small aircraft that has been selected specifically for optimum viewing. Once you are ready to go, you will ascend into the skies for a truly unforgettable flight.
The full impact of the famous Nazca Lines can only be appreciated from the air. Believed to have been scratched on the surface of the dry Peruvian Coastal Plain between 500 BC and 500 AD, they remain one of the greatest enigmas in the field of archaelolgoy. These remarkable drawings that have been cut into the stony desert floor resemble geometric figures and various forms, such as a dog, monkey, spider, birds and a tree. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, the lines show an understanding of sophisticated mathematics and surveying techniques, leading many to question their origin. Theories range from pre-Inca irrigation systems to pleas from the ancient Peruvians to the gods above to help with their farming, and even extra-terrestrial intervention. No one knows for sure so you will have to come to your own conclusion!
Your flight lasts for approximately 100-minutes before touching back down at the Pisco airport. After a short comfort break at the airport, you'll re-board your coach and transfer back to the pier.
Please note: While this tour includes limited walking, you should be aware that the flight can encounter some turbulence and involves a lot of banking and tight turns that can subject sensitive passengers to air sickness. The tour is available to wheelchair guests that have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and aircraft, and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather-appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable shoes are recommeneded. Participants will need to provide their age, weight and passport number to the Destination Services Desk 24-hours in advance of the tour. Window seats are not guaranteed.
