Get into the great outdoors and explore the 877,000-acre Paracas Natural Reserve on this lovely half-day tour that includes sightseeing, photo stops and short nature walks that deliver you to specific viewpoints. A scenic 30-minute motorcoach ride brings you to the reserve. Sand dunes, a vast desert landscape and the sparkling sea greet you as you set off by bus to explore the oldest marine reserve in Peru. Here, you'll find over 215 species of migratory birds and 160 different species of fish. As you tour the area, your guide will impart interesting facts about the Paracas culture and the inhabitants who lived here more than 2,000 years ago. Follow a trail that leads to a protected bay, hosting colonies of scarlet and white flamingos - the inspiration for the colors of the Peruvian flag. Conclude with a relaxing drive back to the pier.

Special Notes:

This tour includes walking on unpaved trails over dirt and crushed gravel. Guests who prefer to stay on the transport can be accommodated. The sun can be quite strong and there is limited shade within the reserve. Please bring a hat and sunscreen.
