Take a small plane flight over the world famous Nazca Lines! These lines, some over 2,000 years old, have blown away historians and archaeologists for hundreds of years, and even today there is no uniform agreement as to how or why they were created. Spread over almost 80 km of desert - a flight over the Nazca Lines is the only way to do justice to these incredible landmarks.

See the mysterious Nazca Lines in southern Peru on a 30 minute flight. Due to the large amounts of geoglyphs, the Nazca Lines have been an official UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994. The lines can only be fully seen and appreciated from the air and this flight will take you over the high plateau of the desert where the figures were designed. The lines date back to between 500 BC and 500 AD with figures such as spiders, monkeys, fish, and hummingbirds scratched on the arid surface of the desert.
Believed to have had astronomical ritual functions, there are many different theories behind the lines and their construction. Although you may not solve the mystery of their creation, you will get to appreciate them from the sky, along with views of one of the driest places on earth.
Our fully certified aircrafts (Cessna 207A 6/8 seaters) are specifically designed for this type of flight. All of them have a two-way intercom for communication between the pilots and passengers, this way our experienced guides/pilots can give important information during the flight ensuring the passengers are both comfortable and informed while taking time to appreciate the stunning panoramic windows.
All our pilots are fully qualified and our planes maintained to the highest international standards.
