What will we do?
Surfing over the sand dunes is something you have to do at least once in your life. Freedom, the wind in your face and the sensation of letting go is indescribable. And all around: nothing but desert and peace. Surfing Duna Grande or Cerro Blanco, two of the highest sand dunes in South America (Nasca, Ica Region, south of Lima) is even more exciting. Slopes from the summit are short and gentle, inviting you to try sandboarding. But there are some steep slopes of around a thousand metres on which you can reach really high speeds. As well as sandboarding, sand buggies are also available: motorised vehicles that are more comfortable but provide almost the same level of adrenaline. You don’t so much need stamina as great skill to drive one.
As we have mentioned, you need to be in good physical shape and have sufficient stamina for this adventure, as the expeditions combine walking as well as sandboarding. Although the trek is not very arduous at first, it becomes so on the sandy slopes of the dunes. It takes about three hours to reach the summit.
