Day 1 Lima-Ica-Paracas
After breakfast your will be taken to the bus station for your Royal Class bus ride to Ica. Upon arrival you will be met and taken to the Ica airport for your overflight of the Nazca Lines. The Nazca Lines are gigantic geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches 53 miles between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana in Peru. They were created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and 600 AD. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys and lizards. The Nazca Lines cannot be recognized as coherent figures except from the air. Since it is presumed the Nazca people could never have seen their work from this vantage point, there has been much speculation on the builders abilities and motivations. Overnight Hotel Paracas.

Day 2 Paracas-Lima
After breakfast you will enjoy a tour of the Ballestas Islands. These spectacular islands, a one hour cruise from the mainland, eroded into many caves and arches, provide shelter for thousands of seabirds and hundreds of sea-lions. Although the islands fall just outside the Paracas National Reserve they are protected by separate legislation. The islands are home to over 150 species of marine birds including the Humboldt penguin, cormorants, bobbies and pelicans. Even condors have been known to visit. On the shores can be seen large numbers of sea-lions and in the sea it is possible to encounter dolphins and even whales. You will then take the Royal Class bus to Lima for overnight.

Day 3 Lima-End of Tour
After breakfast you will be taken to the airport or you can extend your stay in Lima, add one of our many other tours of Peru or continue to Ecuador or Bolivia.
