Enjoy the thrills of an accessible tandem paraglide flight over Iquique, with panoramic views stretching across the town, the mountains and the sea.

This experience will begin with a pick-up service at your hotel and a transfer in a vehicle to the take-off site at Alto Hospicio, located 500 meters above sea level. Your flight instructors will assist you to put on the flight gear and explain safety proceedings to you. The paragliding company has over two decades’ worth of experience in paragliding and have worked with many visitors with physical and visual disabilities, so they will be ready to help you wherever necessary.

You will then wait at the take-off site, a sandy field, until the conditions are ideal for you to ascend. Your instructor will guide you for the entire flight and take care of all of the technical aspects of the paraglide, leaving you free to relax and take in the incredible views. You will be in the air for at least 20 minutes, giving you plenty of time to swoop over Iquique, the coastline, the mountains and the sand dunes.

Once you have soared over the bay, you will gently come into land on a field outside of Iquique.
