    An absolute highlight of our trip. We loved everything about the experience and it was something we will cherish forever. The service, knowledge and expertise were impeccable with everyone from the head farmer to the harvesters to the captain and the chef. Absolutely recommend booking this tour.

Paracas Scallop Farm Tour

We'll meet at the Hotel Paracas pier at 10 am ready to take part in a very unique activity! The conchas de abanico, meaning "fan shells", are a type of scallop found in the bays of Peru.

First, we'll board a speedboat and sail out to the bay of the Paracas National Reserve to learn about how the fishermen collect the scallops, an important part of the local gastronomy.

During the trip, you'll learn about all the properties of this seafood by visiting the scallop farm on Atenas beach.

To finish off the trip we'll head to Restaurante Chalana, a specialist in dishes with these scallops. Here you'll get to taste the scallops in six different dishes!

At the end of the activity, we'll head back to the starting point for around 12 noon.
