Overview

Cerro Blanco is a dune that is located in the Nazca Valley and has a height of 2078 meters above sea level. From its summit, visitors can enjoy a beautiful natural landscape, surrounded by dunes of whimsical shapes, which offer the perfect setting for sandboarding.
First we will practice, following the instructions of our guide who will explain how to use the board and show us different styles. Once we have practiced enough, we will slide down the dunes, the last slope is about 600 meters, which guarantees an experience full of adrenaline.

Highlights

In Ica we have a desert and thousands of experiences. Let’s start with the most common ones: a boat ride on the Ballestas Islands, a flight over the Nasca lines, an afternoon in front of the Huacachina lagoon, sandboarding or a luxury picnic in the desert. But… what do they have in common? Well, nothing! All the experiences in Ica are surprising and unique. Ica, very close to Lima, the city of eternal sunshine and cradle of famous wineries, is waiting for you!
