Ancient Nasca lines of Peru

One of the fascinating sights in Peru are the ancient Nasca lines in the southern desert.  Called “geoglyphs”, they became known in the 1920s when commercial flights started between Lima and Arequipa.  These enormous land “drawings” have intrigued scientists and travelers ever since.

We will have an opportunity to see the Nasca lines as an option on our August 2011 tour of Peru!  Our departure dates should be available soon–check this site for information.

Below is a link to the National Geographic web article on the lines, and there is also a feature article in the March 2010 issue of National Geographic.

Peru, August 2011

Peru: Ancient Land of Mysteries, a tour featuring Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and much more is scheduled for August, 2011, sponsored by First Church Travelers.

John and I were able to participate in a Familiarization Tour to Peru, and are very excited to share it with travelers.  This colorful, diverse, historical, magical place will create memories to last a lifetime.   You will travel by Vistadome train the Machu Picchu, one of the 7 Wonders of the World–and spend the night in a beautiful hotel close to the base of the ruins.  At Lake Titicaca, you will meet the local Uros people, cruising to their Floating Island homes.  Itinerary also includes Lima, Cuzco, the Paracas National Reserve wildlife sanctuary, and an optional Peruvian Amazon extension.
