NAZCA LINES TOUR SUMMARY

In this Nazca Lines Tour you will:

  • Fly over the enigmatic and unparalleled Nazca geoglyphs,a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Explore the marine fauna of the Ballestas Islands in Paracas
  • Slide down the perfect sand dunes of Ica
  • Enjoy beautiful beaches along the coast of Peru

WHAT ARE THE NAZCA LINES?

The main attraction of the Nazca Lines Tour is a series of geoglyphs located in the desert of Nazca, Peru (approx. 400 Km. from Lima). These Nazca lines encompass hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, llamas and lizards. They were created by pre-Hispanic cultures between the 8th century BC and the 8th century AD. According to the UNESCO, “[the Nazca Lines] are the most outstanding group of geoglyphs anywhere in the world and are unmatched in its extent, magnitude, quantity, size, diversity and ancient tradition”.

The exact reason why the Nazca lines were built remains a mystery. A leading theory is that they had religious meaning, and that images were constructed so that gods could see them from the sky. Some archaeologists support the theory that the Nazca Lines were intended to point to the places on the distant horizon where the sun and other celestial bodies rose or set. Regardless of what anyone says, no one has real proof of who built them or why. Since their discovery, the Nazca Lines have inspired fantastic explanations.
