Mysteries of the Nasca revealed

This tour provides an unrivalled opportunity to learn about the little-known Nasca people, who inhabited the arid coastline in what is now southern Peru from 750BC to 900AD, when their society collapsed for reasons possibly related to climate change. David Beresford-Jones, who has undertaken considerable field research in the area and is the UK’s leading academic on the Nasca, will share his theories on the rise and fall of this fascinating culture. The main focus of the tour will be on Ica, Nazca and Paracas but time will also be spent visiting the classic Inca sites of Peru: Machu Picchu, the Sacred Urubamba Valley and the one-time Inca capital, Cusco.

Highlights

  • Visit Lima’s Larco museum, whose extensive collection covers 5,000 years of Peruvian history
  • Stay on a vineyard in the Ica valley and view the enigmatic Nazca lines both from land and air
  • Admire fascinating marine wildlife on the Ballestas Islands
  • Fly to the high Andes and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, visiting both Cusco and Machu Picchu
