Oasis Huacachina Sand Boarding

Oasis Huacachina Peru

The Oasis Huacachina is located 5km southwest from Ica and about 6 minutes’ drive. It is a small lagoon in the middle of an oasis and famous for the medicinal properties. Super landscape surrounded by high sandbanks, palm and Huarango trees “carob tree”.

By the ends of the XIX century Huacachina was practically uninhabited, until the Italian Angela Perotti rediscovered the medical properties of the lagoon, especially for the cure of skin and rheumatism.

The huacachina is home to an extraordinary adventure tour called the dune buggy and sandboarding tour. This tour is both thrilling and jaw-dropping, transporting you deep into the desert to see the huge sand dunes on the coast. These ancient mountains of sand are beautiful and surreal.

Oasis Huacachina: available only in private service: departures from lima, ica or pisco.

Our guide will take care of the place to show and explain about different cultures. Later visit an artisan winery where our liquor known as Pisco is made.

After the tour our guests can taste the different varieties of Pisco and this winery produces wine, and if desired can also purchase bottles of Pisco. Finally we head to the Oasis of Huacachina, which is located just 5 Km. at arrival you can enjoy the tranquility of the place and walk around looking for good photos and lunch in one of the restaurants.

After Lunch and some time to relax we start the second part of our tour, half the tour is riding in the dune buggy, up and down the dunes at fast speeds. And the other half of the tour is a chance to try the adventure sport of “sandboarding”.

This is just like snowboarding, but instead of snow you will be boarding on the fine-grained sand of the desert. If you aren’t athletically talented, no problem! Just lay on your stomach on the board, and go “sand sledding”. This is faster, lots of fun, and doesn’t require any patience or ability.

The dune buggy and sandboarding tour is an amazing thrill ride. But this is more than just a thrill ride: the gigantic sand dunes are beautiful, surreal and mesmerizing. A tour into the desert feels like an “out of this world” experience, almost like visiting the surface of another planet, after this amazing experience we drive you back to your hotel in Pisco.
