Guided Holidays for paragliding pilots at Algodonales, southern of Spain
We offer paragliding tours at Algodonales and the surrounded areas; a paragliding guide service and thermal tuition which will allow you to maximise your time flying the best sites.
You won't waste time trying to find the best places to fly every day; We have more than twelve different flight spots in our radio of action. We fly not only in the mountains, but also in the coast, and we don't mind to drive two hours to the place with the best weather if necessary!
We don’t want to be a simple “taxi driver” just for driving and to show you where the landing field and the takeoff spot are. There are already some people who can do that... We want to go beyond and do it better.
In the daily briefings, we check together with the best weather forecast websites in the giant screen of our classroom, we visit the landing areas before flying and we advise you about the local flying in each site. Our guided tours are run by experienced instructors who’s interest is not just with those pilots that fly the furthest, but they take an active interest in the ability and progress of everyone in the group.
You will benefit from the local knowledge of the instructors. Most of the paragliding foreigners guides and instructors come here just for a few months, during the winter season, and after that, they go back home... but our staff are Spanish. We were born here and we have learned to fly in these mountains. We know our place.
YOU SIMPLY MUST COME!
Because in Spain 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 Algodonales are one of the best paragliding spots in southern Spain and one of the most popular in Europe. During the spring it is a great thermal site and has good cross-country potential, even for your first XC flight. But it is also an easy place for beginners, full of big landing areas.
The coast is just one hour away and offers two other easy coastal flying sites above sand dunes.
Not only will you be flying but you will be enjoying the culture and the real people of Spain. 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, Costa de la Luz and Costa del Sol.
