How to Get to Iquique, Atacama, Northern Chile

Arrivals & Transfers

The only, realistic way to get to Iquique is to fly from Santiago. The city is located 1,790km north from Santiago, connected by the main Ruta 5 Panamerican Highway.

The flight time is around 3.5hrs, with daily flights from Santiago airport.

Upon arrival to Iquique airport there are these onward options:
Pick up a rent a car.
Take a local transfer service to your hotel.
Take a prearranged private transfer.

ExperienceChile.Org will be pleased to arrange the flight, plus rent a car, or private transfer to meet you at the airport. Our advice would be to not rent a car because nearly all of your time will be based in Iquique city, apart from maybe a couple of excursions outside the city and these we would arrange as part of a local tour, or with private transfer.
