Guided "Safari" for paragliding pilots, exploring Granada and Jaen, 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 the province of Granada and Jaen.
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.
BONUS: EL YELMO FESTIVAL!
During our tour we will visit for a couple of days the International Festival of El Yelmo, one of the most important paragliding events in Spain.
