Overview – Flight Over the Nazca Lines with a helicopter

Our Flight Over the Nazca Lines with a helicopter take off from the airport at the Ingenio Valley, located next to the Nazca desert.

A helicopter is by far the most comfortable way to experience the Nazca Lines.

Aerial Tour Details

Our service begins with the pick-up of our clients from their hotel in the city of Nazca.

Then we drive to the Ingenio airport, which is 25 kilometers away, next to the Ingenio Valley.

For this aerial tour, you will board a helicopter, which has spacious room for 4 people, plus the pilot.

Our guide will give each client a Nazca Lines Map that will be useful to recognize the figures.

Each passenger has a seat next to the window, therefore you will enjoy a better view from the air.

The flight lasts 35 minutes, time in which you will able to appreciate many drawings.

The pilot will fly the plane in circles over each figure.

We flight first on the left side and then on the right side, giving passengers an equal opportunity to view each figure through the window.

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, a parrot 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.

End of our service.

Our helicopter flight service begins usually in the morning. Customers are transferred from their hotel to our hangar at the Ingenio Valley, which is located some 20 kilometers away from the Nazca city. Our hangar has been built right next to the archaeological zone, which means that every customer will enjoy a great view of the lines and figures as soon as the helicopter takes off. For this aerial tour, you will board a helicopter, which has spacious room for 4 people, plus the pilot. Before we get on the helicopter our english speaking pilot will proceed to give you a briefing about this air tour and also will give each participant a map of the archaeological zone, which shows all the figures you will see from the air. After some basic information about the Lines and safety instructions, you will board then the helicopter and will take off. The first figure you will see from the air it will be the whale. This beautiful marine deity is located on the eastern part of the archaeological complex was drawn over a big rectangular figure (see Nazca Lines map). As soon as we get close to the whale our pilot will let you know and then he will keep the helicopter flying over it for a few seconds till you have taken your photos. The next figure you will see is a triangle, which appears over a small hill featuring 3 points. On the other side you will also see the famous trapezoids that, according to Erick von Daniken were ancient runways for visitors from another planet. These trapezoids are about 2 kilometers long and their perfection is stunning. Some kilometers further west we will find one of the strangest creatures on the Nazca desert The Astronaut. Unlike the other drawings, the astronaut was etched on the slope of a small hill, and not on the desert surface. His body is facing to the south and according to Maria Reiche it does not represent an astronaut, but a shaman or ancient Nazca priest, someone with magic powers who could predict the weather. Later on we will fly over the monkey figure, an enormous drawing that measures about 90 meters in length, and shows at one hand five fingers and on the other just four, symbolizing the 9 month of drought the Nazca people suffered every year. The monkey figure was discovered in 1954 by Maria Reiche, and according to her point of view it is associated to the big deeper constellation. After the monkey, we will fly over the dog figure, a small drawing that according to some scholars it represents a divinity worshipped by the Nazca people. Then it comes one of the best preserve figures of the whole area The hummingbird, a gorgeous design perfectly made on a dark plateau located at one corner of the archaeological complex. According to Maria Reiche this figure is associated with the summer solstice, as one of the lines connected to its beak, points towards the place where the sun rises every year during our summer solstice. Not very far from the hummingbird, you will find the spider, a figure that according the local knowledge, represents the fertility and water, as this insect used to appear when it is going to rain or the water in the rivers is about to come. Some meters away we will find the huge condor figure, featuring a straight line that crosses its wings and points towards the place where the sun sets every year on summer solstice. Our next figure will be the flamingo, which is the longest figure on the desert, with over 300 meters. According to Maria Reiche the beak of this bird points towards the place where the sun rises every year on winter solstice. Then we will fly over the parrot figure, a huge bird with about 230 meters in length. In addition to the parrot you will also see several geometric designs around, and the beautiful valley of Ingenio. Finally we will fly over the Pan-American Highway, where you will see 2 figures; the hands and the Huarango tree. If you look carefully, you will find next to the tree, another figure representing a big lizard. Unfortunately when the people built the highway in 1937, they had no idea that ancient figures were drawn there, so they cut the lizard figure in two, destroying mainly the central part of its body, leaving the tail on one side of the road and on the other side part of its back, and its complete head with its two hands. After flying over these figures, we will return to the helipad and during the way back you still can enjoy other straight lines that run for kilometers and a stunning panoramic view of the Nazca desert.
