City: Lima, Coast // Activities: Sandboarding, Off-road jeep tour in the dunes of Lima//
Sandboarding in Peru is a very special and adrenaline-rich adventure sport. With this half-day tour, you will enjoy sandboarding in Lima and a tour in a professional off-road jeep through its dunes. The most popular option to do sandboarding in Peru is Huacachina, but as it is rather far from Lima this is the perfect alternative. Also, instead of being surrounded by large tourist groups you will feel like you own the entire desert as there is nobody around you. Fasten your seatbelt as you enter the dunes because driving through them feels like a rollercoaster ride. With professional equipment (compared to cheap wooden board from Huacachina) and a sandboarding pro, you will learn how to board step by step: first on small dunes, then on big ones. You can stand, lay down or slide, whatever you prefer. On the way back to Lima, there will be a brief stop in San Bartolo to enjoy the beautiful beaches and the sea for a while.

Afterwards, you will enter the desert and the dune expedition in an off-road jeep will start. After you have gotten to know the dunes a bit, you will stop to do sandboarding. The professional sandboarding instructor will teach you some basics on a small dune. Once you are ready, you will sandboard on some larger dunes. On the way back, you will stop in San Bartolo to get to know Lima's beaches and its sea (optional). In Lima, you will be dropped off at your hotel.
