Day 3: Paracas - Ica - Nazca (Breakfast & lunch)

A stop for lunch at the Las Dunas restaurant before visiting the vineyards of Vista Alegre to sample some wines and perhaps some Pisco. Continue the trip onto Nazca and transfer to your hotel.

Meals: B, L

Day 4: Nazca - Ica - Lima (Breakfast)

Before breakfast, a tour flight over the enigmatic Nazca Lines; gigantic drawings and geometrical figures engraved in the driest desert of Peru and dating back to 250 AD. Drawn throughout over 1000 Km2 of desert on the Pampas of San Jose in Ica, and due to their enormous size and largely unknown origin, leaves an indelible impression on all who visit this most mysterious archaeological site. With representations of animals, such as a spider, a monkey and several birds, they are believed to be an enormous astronomical calendar or possibly an offering to the gods. First discovered in 1550 it was not until the advent of flight, in the 1920's that the lines were first realised for their significance. The drawings are not in actual desert sand but on small rock debris, varying in length from 150m to 300m and with a depth of 20cm. Return to your hotel for breakfast before visiting the Ocongalla aqueducts and the archaeological sites of Cahuachi and Estaqueria. Cahuachi, one of the largest ceremonial centres of the Nazca civilization is located on the rim of the Nazca River. The Cahuachi ceremonial centre was a sacred destination of Nazca pilgrims between 100 and 500 AD. The site includes the main cultural-urban centre, pyramidal temples, terracing of fossil sand dunes, streets and squares. Italian archaeologist Giuseppe Orefici has been excavating the site for the past few decades. The Estaqueria archaeological site with its wooden pillars carved of huarango wood and placed on mud-brick platforms were once thought to have been an astronomical observatory. More recent theories, however, lean toward their use in mummification rituals, perhaps to dry bodies of deceased tribal members. Return to Ica for a late lunch (not included) at Mossone Hotel which is located at the Huacachina lagoon, which is located just 5 miles west of the city of Ica. A natural oasis in the middle of the white sand of the desert, the abundant vegetation consisting of palms, eucalyptus and typical guarangos serve as a rest area for migratory birds passing through the region. After visiting the lagoon, return journey to Lima and transfer to your hotel.
