Because the good wheather, the low prices, the nice people…
Because in Spain we have the best climate conditions to fly paragliding the whole year round, especially in winter. While the rest of Europe is frozen, we can fly great thermals at 20ºC ! It is often quicker to be a qualified paragliding pilot here as there are more flyable days. In one or two weeks, you can complete paragliding courses that could take months elsewhere. Not only will you be flying but you will be enjoying new cultures, surroundings and the real people of Spain.
The mountains: Algodonales is a famous centre for paragliding and hang gliding in Southern Spain, with a variety of superb launch sites covering all wind directions and it is also within an easy thirty minutes drive of another five flying sites.
The coast is just one hour away and offers two other easy coastal flying sites above sand dunes. Algodonales is also ideally situated for visiting the surrounding great cities and sights of interests such as Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera and the Costa de la Luz and the Costa del Sol.
