Ica, Paracas & Nazca

Experience the unique culture along Peru’s peculiar pacific desert coast

Centrally located along Peru’s coastal highlights is the Paracas National Reserve, where we can take you on a marine safari among the humboldt penguins, sea lions and humpback whales. The Paracas Candelabra – a mysterious 183 meter tall geoglyph was also made in prehistoric times.

Moving south, you come to the town of Ica, on the edge of the Atacama Desert. The town boasts stunning Spanish colonial architecture, and the pisco made in Bodega El Catador is said to be amongst the best in the world. Visit to see this delicious grape brandy being made, and at harvest time to press the grapes yourself under foot.
 
2,000 years ago, the Nazin people created hundreds of “geoglyphs” depicting animals, birds and trees “etched” into the desert landscapes. Some are over 1,000 feet long and are best seen by light aircraft.
