Luxury Paracas & the Ballestas Islands Tours

Nationally Protected Reserves, Peru`s Version of the Galapagos Islands

Explore Paracas & the Ballestas Islands on Your Terms

About 160 miles south of Lima is the UNESCO-listed National Reserve of Paracas, Peru. The park covers an astonishing 826,450 acres, and one of its headline attractions is a boat trip to the Ballestas Islands, whose rich pickings of wildlife earn it comparisons to Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands. A luxury Paracas tour & trip to the Ballestas Islands will surely get the adrenaline running to this exclusive area of Peru.

Wildlife aren’t the only draw, either. Heritage hunters will find more than 100 indigenous archaeological sites, while adventure seekers will be satiated with activities including surfing, ATV and motorbike rides, as well as kayaking. The pristine beaches of Paracas, which also fall under the remit of the Peruvian National Park Service, make great resting spots in between activities and tours.
