Both hugely popular with the adventurous traveller, hang gliding and paragliding involve soaring high above the earth in a non-motorised, kite-like aircraft.
Although there are slight differences between the two activities, both offer a truly unique and exhilarating experience, not to mention breathtaking vistas of the landscapes below, and from Turkey’s picture-perfect southwestern coastline, to New Zealand’s rugged South Island, across the world, there are myriad great destinations where you can try this adrenaline-rich activity!
One of the most beautiful and vibrant cities on earth, Rio is an intoxicating blend of soaring mountains, tropical forests, golden-hued beaches, and some of the best nightlife on the planet.
The perfect destination for a hang gliding adventure: take in awe-inspiring aerial vistas of the city’s spectacular scenery and iconic landmarks as you soar high above its maze-like streets before landing on one of its beautiful beaches overlooking the glittering waters of the ocean.
Although both activities can be dangerous you will always be accompanied by an instructor who will issue you with safety instructions and ensure the conditions are safe for flying.
In order to operate a paraglider or hang glider on your own, you must undertake a course.
Although both activities can be done year round, generally the warmer summer months offer the best conditions.
Most flights last between 20 and 40 minutes.
