An unexpected oasis in the middle of the barren desert, Ica is surprisingly fecund. Excellent wine and pisco – Peru’s national liquor and the star ingredient in the much-loved pisco sour cocktail – are produced in the nearby fruit-laden vineyards. Ica is the starting point for many tours to Nazca and Paracas, but also has attractions of its own: for the desert-bound, sandboarding and dune-buggying thrill seekers, Ica and the huacachina oasis is home to the world’s largest sand dunes. Experience a magical desert journey horseback-riding through the dunes and camping under the stars.
