Best of Both Worlds:

Epic Ridge Soaring

Incredible thermals and XC

 

Overview

When it was time to add a second destination to our tour offering, we knew it had to be Iquique. Located on the coast of Northern Chile, just west of the Atacama Desert (the driest place on earth), Iquique is know to be the most flyable place in the world. No joke, the locals say the skip about 10 days a year. From epic sand dune soaring, to thermal and huge XC down the coast, this place has it all. Most pilots rack up 3-5 hours a day, dialing in ground handling , ridge soaring, and thermaling skills. Land right on the beach next to our awesome hotel with roof top pool for the afternoon siesta. This trip is not to be missed!
