Information and details

Guided tour for paragliding pilots, exploring  Andalucia, southern Spain

Paragliding pilots are like hunters; we like to collect flights in amazing new areas like hunting trophies. Let's explore together!

During this week-long 'safari', we will fly in some of the best and most popular paragliding sites in Andalucia, southern Spain.

You will benefit from the local knowledge of the instructors.
In the daily briefings, we check the best weather forecast websites together, we visit the landing areas before flying and we advise you about the local flying in each site. Our guided safari is run by experienced instructors who are not just interested in pilots that fly the furthest, but they take an active interest in the ability and progress of everyone in the group.

 

ANDALUCIA, SOUTHERN SPAIN

YOU SIMPLY MUST COME!
Because in Andalucia we have the best climate conditions for paragliding the whole year round, even in autumn and winter while the rest of Europe is frozen we can fly great thermals at 20ºC!

The mountains around here are one of the best paragliding spots in southern Spain. During the spring it is a great thermal site and has good cross-country potential.

We will visit some of the most popular paragliding sites, as Algodonales, El Bosque, Lucena, Loja, Cenes, Otivar, Jabalcon, Pegalajar, Mancha Real, El Yelmo,...

Not only will you be flying but you will be enjoying the culture and the real people of Spain.

 

 

THE PLAN

A GOOD COMBINATION OF FLYING AND TOURISM
We will visit some of the most popular flying sites in Andalucia; of course that we must be flexible due to the weather, but this is the main plan to be followed

On the arrival day, we will pick you up from Malaga airport at 13h00 (buy your flight tickets according to this time). We will go towards our first destination, Algodonales. After you are accommodated in the hotel we will try a sunset flight. We will spend some days flying at Algodonales, El Bosque and, maybe, on Matalascañas beach.

After a couple of days, we will move and establish our base at Granada, which is well located in the centre of the area and most of the flying sites are less than one hour from here, so we will have more options to fly.
Granada is also one of the most tourist cities in Spain with many alternative activities to offer. We won't miss the popular free tapas per every single drink!

For the last three days, we will move to Jaen to visit the International Festival of El Yelmo. You will enjoy the amazing flight (900 m top-to-bottom) and the festival with shows, cinema, night party and much more.

Departure day: We will depart early in the morning to Malaga, expected arrival time to the airport approx. 14h00 (buy your flight tickets according to this time)
