The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They are believed to have been created by the Nazca culture between 400 BCE and 600 CE. The lines, which can only be fully appreciated from the air, depict animals, plants, and other designs and stretch for over 50 miles.
A tour of the Nazca Lines typically involves a flight over the lines in a small aircraft which can be a Cessna 172 or a Cessna 207, allowing visitors to get a unique perspective on these ancient marvels. The flight lasts about thirty five minutes and includes a briefing on the history and significance of the lines before takeoff. During the flight you are going to see twenty figures including the emblematic Monkey, Hummingbird and Spider, as well as other less known figures such as the Pelican, the Astronaut and the Dog.
The Nazca Lines are a must-see for anyone visiting Peru and are a truly unforgettable experience. So, if you’re planning a trip to Peru, be sure to include a tour of the Nazca Lines in your itinerary.
Also, you will be able to see the Cantalloc Aqueducts from the air, a system of water channels and wells that the ancient people of Nazca used for gathering and keeping water that is still being used.
This tour is a unique way to get to know more about the fascinating Peruvian story and see the legacy of the ancient Nazca from an incredible perspective.
