The coastal areas of Peru are home to some of this country’s most dramatic landscapes. In a setting more suited to the Sahara, around 5 kilometers inland from Ica you’ll find the oasis of Huacachina, where underground waters spring in a green lagoon, supposedly with healing properties. Certainly, its origins attested in local legends contribute to its exotic glamour alongside Peruvians and foreigners alike.

An experience designed for a couple of trips, providing a private and exclusive service to live the experience of sandboarding or sand skiing in the majestic dunes of the Huacachina desert.

But the surroundings of the oasis are its best-known asset: big rolling dunes of golden, always moving, sand. To experience them, Sandboarding Perú offers you the so-called sand-snow school, where you’ll be able to sandboard and sand ski under the guidance of a local instructor, before riding a dune buggy for around 2 hours, reaching the top of the highest dunes and looking out to the landscapes below.
