“Great place to stay and fly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stayed in the Altazor flight park in Iquique. It's a nice hostel built with ship containers. It's very tidy (nice kitchen) and has good showers. The hostel is situated 20 to 30min (by bus) from the citycenter which could be a disadvantage. However several micro buses (number 5, 17,..) take you there for only 400 pesos/person. On top of that the center of Iquique doesn't really have a lot to offer.

Being guests in the flight park we couldn't skip a tandem flight paragliding. It was great! Very professional and correct. We flew 35 min for only 35000 pesos/person (low season price). The pilots were friendly and entertaining during the flight and cared for our wellbeing constantly.

Thumbs up!

“UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

i did paragliding with Altazor in July!
booking process through facebook was fast and easy.
they gave me a pick up service on time and we drove to
alto hospicio where all paragliders usually take off.

20minute flight was awesome!
iquique looks absolutely amazing from above
and the whole scenery was breathtaking!!

pilots are from european countries so
they all speak good english and spanish
which was very important since you need to communicate while flying.

you might suffer from motion-sickeness if it's your first time so
taking a pill before the flight will definitely help.

after living in iquique for 5 months,
paragliding is the best fun you can have in this city!
