For those travelers who enjoy seeing something unique and amazing that only a handful of travelers have had the privelege of seeing, we proudly offer the Nazca Lines and Palpa Lines multi-destination flight. During this premium tour you will see 12 of the world-famous Nazca Lines, and seven Palpa Lines. The Palpa Lines were discovered much later than the Nazca Lines, and are not as famous. But they are every bit as fantastic: there are many humans that appear in the Palpa Lines, including an entire family.
During the 50-minute flight, the pilots will say the name of each figure in english and spanish, and provide a chance for passengers on both sides of the craft to have a view of each figure. The Nazca lines that you will see include the monkey, dog, whale, tree, hands, "astronaut", hummingbird, spider, etc.
This tour includes pickup from your hotel in Nazca, or from the CRUZ DEL SUR bus station. The tour does not include the airport tax ($10 USD per person) which should be paid for in cash at the airport. All passengers should bring their passports. For safety reasons, the total weight of the aircraft is carefully controlled by the airline staff. Those passengers who weigh more than 90 kilograms (200 pounds) may be required to pay an extra fee, depending on how much they and the other members of their party weigh. During the reservation all passengers will need to inform us of their weights.
Flights over the Nazca Lines and Palpa Lines depart from the Nazca airport several times per day, from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Approximately 20% of travelers may experience motion sickness, so we recommend purchasing medicine. In pharmacies in Peru you can purchase GRAVOL, which contains dramamine.
