Day 2 - Lima - Paracas (250 km., transfer)

Explanation of the operation and start of the motorcycles. We will have a short ride in the Paracas peninsula to get familiarized with the motorcycles. For the first three days of the tour the type of riding terrain will consist of hard-packed dirt roads eventually combined with some easy off-road sections. Hotel accommodation. Includes: (B) (D)
Day 3 - Paracas - Inca (140 km.)
At 8:00 AM after breakfast at the hotel depart for the 2-hour marine excursion to the Ballestas Islands. The islands are located 20 km. from the coast and are part of the Paracas National Reserve. On the way to the islands, we will observe the “Candelabro”, an enormous drawing in one of the biggest dunes of the reserve that was probably made by the ancient Incas. Once at the Ballestas Islands we will observe the fauna at their natural habitat, including sea lions, Humboldt penguins and different bird species.
Now on the motorcycles, we will head south along the coast of the reserve following the solitary beaches of the Pacific Ocean for 80 km. The turquoise color of the ocean contrasts with the reddish, yellowish and brownish colors of the hills and dunes in this part of the desert. After a box lunch we will change course east and cross the desert for another 60 km. The hard-packed dirt road follows a sand dune chain that stretches over 15 miles. Those with the enough riding experience may enjoy riding over the 150 – 300 ft. tall sand dunes, roller coasting or simply “floating” on top.
