Day 1: Transfer Lima - Ica/Huacachina - Sand buggy & boarding
Go to the Lima bus station on your own this morning and take a public bus to Ica at 10:00 am. Once you reach Ica, you will take a taxi (not included) up to the peaceful Huacachina Oasis. In the afternoon, you will go on a thrilling tour in which you will get the chance to ride to the top of giant sand dunes on a dune buggy and fly down on a sand board.
Begin your fun-filled activity with an exhilarating sand buggy ride. Cruise to the top of 500 meter high sand dunes and go rocketing down the slopes in this recreational vehicle. This roller coaster ride of 360's, sharp turns and steep hills will get your adrenaline pumping before you take your first shot at sand boarding. You will have the opportunity to sand-board on 3-4 different dunes so you can try your luck. You will take thrilling rides on a basic sand-board by laying face first on the board and letting yourself fly down the dune to see how far (and fast) you can go. Cheer on your mates and don't let anyone shy away from this unforgettable experience. Lastly, you will admire the breathtaking sunset over the vast desert landscape and have the chance to take photos in the golden twilight before racing back to Huacachina.
(Experienced sand-boarders can choose to upgrade to a professional sand-board with boots and bindings for an extra cost of $5 USD paid locally. Upgrades are subject to availability. To reserve, please contact us in advance with your shoe size. On the day of the tour, you will need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure for your fitting. For beginners we recommend the laying down option as it is much easier and lots of fun!)
Day 2: Transfer Ica/Huacachina - Lima
Enjoy some free time to wander around Huacachina before taking a taxi to Ica on your own to catch your bus back to Lima, your head full of exciting memories.
* Suggestions for Sand Buggy and Sand Boarding: Make sure you wear long pants, shoes and sunglasses (or ask your driver for eye-protection). You will come back covered from head to toe in sand!
