Overview
Highlights
    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 would 100% recommend going back. Don’t let anyone’s age fool you, they’re a great group of couple, very considerate of all skill levels, and push you to try new things. We had one friend on skis, and two on boards. We also had some pretty wild rides between the dunes which

    Thank you very much Yuval, this type of comments motivates us more and especially to our instructors - Jhayr y Sergio (who are also athletes of sandboarding and currently the best of the world raking of the last world cup of sandboarding). Definitely the reviews of our travelers help a lot to convey the experience that one can live and that the price is worth. Welcome to the SandSnow community and greetings to Eran too.
