Full description
Explore Huacachina, the only oasis in Peru, in a truly thrilling way. Ride over the sand dunes in a 4x4 buggy before then taking part in a sandboarding session. Start with pickup from Ica or Huacachina. Head to the oasis, and get the adrenaline pumping with a dune buggy ride. Feel as if you’re on a rollercoaster as you go up and down dunes of up to 30 meters in height. Take stops to snap photos of the desert landscape and the small lake surrounded by palm trees. Next, try your hand at sandboarding down those same dunes. This experience is suitable for all skill levels, as you’ll be learning the best techniques from your driver. Afterward visit one of the highlights of Huacachinha, the sunset over the desert. Enjoy incredible views of the sun going down, and find the best spot to snap photos with the help of your driver.

The activity was incredible, recommended to all. In addition, the local organizers, Carole Lodge, treated us phenomenally. We arrived early in the morning and left late at night, and they kept our backpack for us all day free of charge, and they also allowed us to use their pool. Highly recommended.

We went as a family and everyone worked so hard to make sure we had a great experience. The guide on the dunes was so kind and attentive to the children, he was helping them with their boards, getting them on and off, helped carry the boards for them. Spent extra care to ensure that he took us to Dunes that were empty so we could be alone. It was an experience full of memories that will last a life time. Highly highly recommend.

(Chemo this is for you ;) ) Aside from the fact we think they forgot we were waiting to be picked up, a quick phone call sorted that and they immediately sent someone to pick us up. We booked onto a shared tour but ended up getting our own private tour given by Chemo who was absolutely brilliant. So much fun, took us to all of the best spots and spoke perfect english! He really made the whole tour and massively improved our experience. He was the perfect photographer and knew all the best places to go! we weren’t convinced about coming down yo Huacachina but this absolutely was worth it, the sunset and exhilaration was perfect. We got recommendations for a bar for some cocktails afterwards which had a gorgeous rooftop view so all in all a perfect experience 100% recommend!!!!
