Trekking around the Paracas National Reserve in Peru is one of the most interesting, fascinating and visually stunning experiences in the country, and I will guide you as we spend the afternoon exploring this vast space of dry and sandy desert, red and yellow volcanic rock, striking lagoons and gorgeous beaches.

Paracas National Reserve is located just South of the Peruvian city of Ica, and is attached to the town of the same name. It is known for its wide variety of flora and fauna, with a range of bird and fish species a particular highlight to see.

Setting off from Paracas town in the afternoon (approximately 1:30pm), we will spend around 3 hours wandering around and admiring the reserve.

Throughout the course of the trek there will be ample time to admire and take in our surroundings, with the Santa Maria Hill, Lagunillas Beach and the Red Beach proving enduringly popular.

After 3 hours we then head back to Paracas town, hopefully having provided you with some memorable sights to remember the National Reserve by.
