Nazca lines by plane
The Nazca Lines are giant figures and lines drawn in the desert of Sudewestern Peru by ancient Nazca peoples. The drawings were created on such a large scale is such that the shapes can be readily discerned only from the air, leading to a variety of theories about their purpose.
The Nazca Lines were created in the time of the Nazca civilization, who flourished in the area from 200 BC to about 600 AD. The Lines include straight lines and geometric shapes as well as stylized depictions of animals, humans and plants.
From Port General San Martin transfer to Pisco Airport. Departure flight to Nazca Lines. The overflight of the Lines lasts 30 minutes and is guided by an English speaking tour guide. Return to Pisco Airport. From the Airpot transfer to have lunch in a typical restaurant (lunch not included).
- Nazca lines overfly is subject to weather conditions and airport tower control and delays are expected at the airport.
- Restrictions due to the aircraft capacity: Limit age: from 12 years old up to 75.Weight: up to 100 kilos per person. (Unbelievable but true, they weight you on the scale!)
- We do recommend to do it during the morning and not to have food before the overfly. The overfly estimative times are at 9 and 11am. However we can run it in the afternoon at 12 and 2pm although it is not the best time to do it. Thirty-two turns are involved to see the Nazca lines so people get sick most of the time after the tenth turn.
- There is 30 minutes drive by bus involved from Pisco pier to Paracas airport. We need to check in at the airport (passport is required ) and 1 hour flight until Nazca lines, which we fly over for 30-40 minutes
