With its vast sand dunes and year-round sun, Ica is the perfect spot for sandboarding. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced sandboarder, Ica has something for everyone.
The best place to go sandboarding in Ica is the Huacachina oasis. It’s an oasis surrounded by sand dunes that are perfect for sandboarding. The dunes are up to 150 meters tall, so you can get some serious speed going down them. The dunes are also well preserved, so you won’t have to worry about any unexpected surprises.
If you’re a beginner, there are plenty of lessons available to help you get started. The instructors will help you learn the basics of sandboarding, such as how to position your body and how to stay in control. If you’re an experienced sandboarder, you’ll find plenty of challenge in Ica. You can try some of the steeper dunes, or take a tour of the area and explore some of the more remote dunes.
No matter your experience level, sandboarding in Ica is an unforgettable experience. The dunes, the sun, and the views will stay with you long after you’ve left.
