Are you ready to discover California Desert at Pisco in the craziest and most exhilarating way? In Venturia, we offer you the unique opportunity to glide gracefully with a 4×4 ride through the Paracas Desert, a golden ocean of sand located just 15 minutes away from the Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort. Starting at dusk, our tours are designed for you to enjoy a desert adventure in Paracas at the best times of the day: in the warm afternoon sunlight and under fresh, starry nights. Hop on with us into this memorable experience you certainly won’t regret!
There is nothing better than racing towards the sunset in the smooth and steep dunes of the California Desert at Pisco. The drifts and curves of the terrain will make you scream with excitement, and nothing beats the stomach-butterflies you get as you speed down from the highest point of a dune. Venturia offers you this experience and much more… with sandboarding, too. Feel the speed of the wind on your body as you slide through the sand at full speed! Don’t forget to bring a camera, in case you want to catch a picture of the majestic desert landscape. This tour will last about two and a half hours, and the departure time can be coordinated according to your preferences.
In Venturia, we aim for excellence, and there is no greater thing than ending a great day at the dunes of Paracas with a luxurious picnic under the stars. We will pick you up from the hotel at 5PM. Then, after dashing at full speed through the sand in 4×4 trucks and taking a swift sandboard ride, we will make a stop in a special spot. This is where you’ll appreciate the best view of the Paracas’ sunset, so make sure to bring your camera! Then, we’ll go to the picnic site, where a warm gourmet meal will be waiting for you including delicious wine, beer, and other beverages. The whole experience lasts about four hours, when we’ll return to your hotel through a calmer route, so you can rest comfortably on the way back to Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort.
Although in Venturia we love to give our clients the most exhilarating experiences, your safety and comfort will always be our number one priority. This is why both tours will start with a safety briefing about the tour at the pickup point. Also, all the SUV’s will be driven by expert and experienced drivers. Both tours are medium difficulty, and we strongly recommend bringing a windbreaker jacket, a hat, and wearing a comfortable outfit (especially pants).
To guarantee a safe and comfortable ride, all of our vehicles come with seat belts, air conditioning, BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires, front tow hitch, 4×4 fenders, air compressor, auxiliary lighting for nighttime driving, GPS and two-way radios, a first aid kit, and fire extinguishers.
Our vehicles are also fully equipped for this particular kind of activity, as they have an independent double-wishbone front suspension with reinforced coil springs and stabilizer bar; a four-link rear suspension with heavy coil springs, a stabilizer bar, and a semi-floating axle. We really look forward to taking you in this amazing ride through the desert, you won’t regret it!
