Sand Boarding in Peru

We took an opportunity with a couple of friends while in Peru, to go Sand Boarding at a little Oasis called Huacachina. It was the first time for all of us to try this sport out. All of us were glad we did. We had Ace along, you can see him here at that lake in Haucachina checking out the mermaid.

Now to go Sand boarding it isn’t like just going on top of hill and sliding down it. You drive out in the sand dunes and find a nice hill, board down and of course when you get to the bottom of the hill your driver comes down and picks you up for the next run. This was our vehicle for this little adventure.

Look at this next picture to get an idea of where we were doing this at.

The sand here is very fine and reminds me of the Sahara sands. After a bit of instructions we started boarding down the slopes

After a long day riding around the dunes and sand boarding we headed back to the oasis…

It is a tough life sand boarding the dunes of Peru…but we would do it again in a minute 🙂

  1. love Ace checking out the mermaid !
    I’ve seen sand boarding somewhere in South Australia on one of the lifestyle programs, but when you get to the bottom you have to climb up again by yourself !
