  • From Nazca: 35-Minute Flight Over Nazca Lines

    1. From Nazca: 35-Minute Flight Over Nazca Lines

    After pickup from your hotel in Nazca, transfer to the Nazca aerodrome. Meet your representative and go to the check-in zone to wait for your flight. You will be briefed on the nature of your tour and on safety instructions. The flight will last 35-minutes and you will see 12 of the most representative figures drawn on the stony surface on the Nazca desert. Look out for representations of animals and stylized plants, distributed in a huge labyrinth of lines, trapezes, and triangles which have been perserved for almost 2,000 years. The Nazca Lines are some of the most incredible remains from an ancient culture. These designs, some as long as 500 meters, can be truly appreciated from the sky at an altitude of 1,500 feet. Fly back to the aerodrome and head back to your hotel in Nazca.

    A super incredible experience and a must do in Nazca! The plane does swerve and turn in order for you to have the best view and it’s quite normal... so try to hang in there for the 30 minutes because it is so worth it! Great service and I felt safe throughout the whole trip. I only wished the pilot could tell us more information about the Nazcan lines because he kept repeating the same words for each of the motif we saw.. lol

Totally worth it to see these mystical lines. The plane is small and shaky with lots of turns (they show you every line on the right and on the left side so everybody can take great pictures) so make sure to take something for motion sickness if you're sensitive

Everything was very well organized, the flight very good too, the pilots were very calm and no one was sick!

Amazing experience, definitely with it! Professional and safe! Best way to see all the Nazca Lines

The incredible flight! Excellent service, punctual and attentive.
