Flight Over Nazca Lines

Flight Over Nazca Lines

If you’re planning a trip to southern Peru, you surely have heard of the enormous geoglyphs carved in the Nazca pampas, or maybe this mysterious finding is already on your bucket list. Therefore, we have added a tour that will allow you to see the most popular lines from high above the clouds.

The vast Peruvian desert was deeply marked by a civilization which we barely know of, the Nazca culture left a legacy in these lands but also many riddles yet to be solved. The famous Nazca Lines are surely an example of that since not archeologists haven’t entirely deciphered their true meaning.

The nearly 2,000-year-old civilization used the Pampas de Jumana as an open canvas, where they traced thousands of geometric shapes, straight lines, animal figures and much more across the entire region.

However, the only way to fully appreciate this UNESCO World Heritage Site is by flying over the Nazca desert since it is quite difficult to actually perceive the figures from ground level. 

The Nazca lines flights are an opportunity only available from the city of Nazca, a one-in-a-lifetime experience that you should definitely include in your Peru travel itinerary.

About the Nazca Lines Flight

The 30-minute flight will allow you to see 11 of the most representative figures of the Nazca Lines. The planes are small and can take up to 6 passengers per flight, each seat has a window so everyone can enjoy the fantastic views from above the clouds.

We work with the best operator in Nazca to ensure a fun but also safe experience throughout the flight. It is worth highlighting that all tours depart from the Maria Reiche Neuman Airport and safety measures are constantly regulated by the Peruvian government.

Keep in mind that the flight could get you dizzy since it takes several sharp turns to ensure everyone can see perfectly from each side of the plane. 

If weather conditions allow it, here’s what you can expect from the flight: The hummingbird, the monkey, the tree, the lizard, the hands, the condor, the spider, the whale, and many other geometrical figures between them. Check this blog for more information about the Nazca Lines.
Important Note: The flights are subject to the weather conditions. Usually they depart every 30-45 minutes if the climate is favorable at the scheduled time. 

How to Book?

As you already know, the Nazca lines are located in the northern Nazca Pampas, a few kilometers away from the main city. Nazca is situated about 7 hours from Lima, which is why we highly recommend making a few stops on the way there so you can experience the best in total comfort.
