Our afternoon was spent flying over the Nazca lines. It was a thrilling flight offering a spectacular opportunity to some of the most famous Nazca lines including the hummingbird, dog, hands, monkey, condor, astronaut, tree, compass, spider, whale, parrot, and many other geometric lines. This part of the trip is not what we expected when we left home but it certainly turned out to be a highlight of our journey.
