Sandboarding Experience in Ica
From US$49.50
Bring your snowboarding skills to the desert on this 3-hour sandboarding experience in Ica. Whether you’re an experienced boarder or have never been, this adventure is for you. First sit through a short sandboarding lesson at Huacachina oasis, and then take a buggy up to one of the tallest desert dunes to practice your skills. Ride the sand or catch air, while you take in stunning views of the everlasting golden scenery.
What to Expect
This 3-hour sandboarding experience meets at the International SandSnow School in Oasis Huacachina, Ica. Your meeting time is dependent on whether you chose the early morning or afternoon departure option.
The first hour of this tour takes place at the school. Test equipment to find the right stuff for you, and listen to a short introduction from the school’s staff. Afterward, your instructor takes you out to the small dunes in the area for a lesson. Here you can also get a feel for how different the sand feels from snow.
Once everyone feels up to it, take a buggy to some of the biggest dunes in the desert. Your instructor lets you ride down the dunes on your board. More experienced boarders can even try to catch some air. Pictures and videos are taken while you’re practicing your skills.
Go back to the school, turn in your equipment, and watch some of the videos of other boarders before heading back home or to your hotel.

I wore exercise leggings and a short sleeve dri fit shirt. My husband wore shorts and a long sleeve dri fit shirt. I would recommend sunglasses and a buff to protect your face from the sand blowing around.
