Do we recommend the Nazca Lines Flight?
Yes. The flight is the ONLY way to see the classic pictures on postcards with views of the lines from above. There are hundreds of figures scattered across the desert, which you will only be able to see by taking the flight! The astronaut, the monkey, the hummingbird and the spider can only be truly appreciated from the air.
Can Peru Hop help me reserve the flight?
We recommend to book your Nazca Lines Flight a couple of days in advance using the booking link on this page. The flight price is $80 and there is an additional 30 soles airport tax. Pre-booking ensures that you have your flight slot booked for when you arrive. In addition, AeroNasca will pick you up from the bus terminal to take you to the airport and drop you off after the flight back in the town centre.
SPECIAL DEAL FOR PERU HOP PASSENGERS – Tours booked with this selected operator AeroNasca via FindLocalTrips.com allow date changes right up until the day before your tour begins at no extra cost.
I have read that there are a lot of accidents. Is the flight safe?
Yes, years ago there were occasional accidents as there was not so much control on flight safety. Now flights are only authorized to leave during appropriate weather conditions and all the flight companies must adhere to strict safety guidelines. If the weather conditions change then no flight company is allowed to depart from the airport. Weather conditions are best early in the morning, so we always recommend getting down to Nazca as early as possible for the flight to avoid disappointment. There have been no accidents for many years and we only work with the safest company, AeroNasca.
I suffer from motion sickness. Would you still recommend the flight?
The flight is not recommended for those susceptible to flight sickness. The planes are typically small 8/10 seat passenger planes and although the flight duration is around 30 minutes, it allows passengers on both sides of the plane see all the Lines. Consequently, the plane must encircle each line first from one side and then from the other.
What else is there to see in Nazca?
The main thing to do in Nazca is the Nazca Lines Flight. Other than that there are a couple of museums that are worth a look and also the Chauchilla cemetery with excellently preserved ancient mummies. We advise against spending more than the day trip here.
I am traveling from Lima to Cusco and want to do the Nazca Lines Flight but do not want to have to spend a night in Nazca itself. Is this possible?
For an easy transfer, private shuttles ($15 USD / one-way / 2.5 hrs) make direct trips from Huacachina to Nazca every day. The service includes pick-up directly from Huacachina (Wild Rover Hostel) and drop off at the airport in Nazca for the flight.
