SURF TRIP PERU

This Surf trip will provide our customers with the best waves and travel experience in Peru. Offering a completely exclusive and memorable experience that will show you the potential this beautiful country has to offer as a great destination.

Your safety and security is as much a priority to us as finding great waves. The itinerary will be flexible due to the swell to ensure that you get the best waves that are happening at the time of your visit.

The most consistent breaks are found in Pacasmayo-Puemape. Punta Rocas is very similar just south of Lima. The longest left in the world is in a magic place Chicama. Other spots like Pacasmayo, Bermejo and Pimentel are nearby. This tour combines surfing adventures, historical sites and the best gastronomy in each city in Peru we get to visit.
Northern Peru is sunny with hot dry weather is almost of the time except in the unusual El Nino years when there can be heavy rain. The ocean has this awesome blue-green water quality and with water temperature between 17 °C and 23 °C.
There are 2 distinct seasons for surfing. The North swell season from November to March, and the South swell season from March to November. Because of this we can choose uncrowded beaches with plenty of empty waves. Waves in these zones are both heavily tide sensitive, direction sensitive, and size sensitive, so local knowledge is crucial.  That’s why we have our Peruvian surf gurus as our tour conductors.

We organize this trip according to your plans.  8 people per group maximum.

Incadventure always finds the best option for you.
