Sandboarding in Huacachina, Peru

[ 9 ] April 23, 2011 | Alison Adey

Travelling through Peru? Sandboarding in Huacachina is a dream come true for adrenaline junkies with a need for speed.

Over the course of 3 hours you’ll race through the desert in sand buggies, bomb headfirst down some of the steepest slopes in the region and watch a spectacular sunset sink beneath the horizon.

Tours cost from 40 soles (£10) and include transportation – which is just as fun as the sandboarding itself – equipment, hostel pick-up and guides. The instructors at Desert Adventures are great, going beyond the call of duty to show you a good time.
