The Nazca Lines Flights leave from the Maria Reiche airport, situated south of the modern town of Nazca.
Nearby, etched onto a stony desert, one can spot from the air, several human figures and various animal forms.
Unlike other geoglyphs zones in the world, in Nazca, you can find a great number of drawings.
Among them, you will find marine creatures, flowers, geometric shapes, and hundreds of straight lines.
Since their discovery in the 1920s, the Nasca drawings remain an unsolved mystery.
Due to its great complexity, Unesco declared the Nazca Lines a World Heritage Site in 1994.
Our service begins with the pick-up of our clients from their hotel in the city of Nazca.
Then we drive to the airport, which is only 5 kilometers from the city center.
Upon arrival, our guide will give you a briefing about the Nazca Lines, including the most popular theories.
Our guide will give each participant a Nazca Lines Map that will help you to recognize the figures from above.
Before boarding the airplane, our pilot will provide safety instructions as well as tips to better enjoy the flight.
We fly over the desert in a small plane, which has 5 seats.
Each passenger has a seat next to the window, therefore you will enjoy a better view from the air.
The flight lasts 35 minutes, a time in which you will able to appreciate many drawings.
The pilot will fly the plane in circles over each figure.
First, we fly on the left side and then on the right side, giving passengers an equal opportunity to view each figure.
Among the animals, we will see the representation of a whale, a monkey, and a dog.
Likewise, you will see various birds, such as a condor, a hummingbird, and a heron, as large as 3 soccer fields.
Perhaps the most striking figure of all, is the Astronaut, a strange creature with a large head and big eyes.
Unlike the other figures, the astronaut was drawn on a hillside and not on the surface of the desert.
Additionally, you will see hundreds of straight lines that crisscross the desert surface in all directions.
Eventually, our guide will take you back to your hotel.
