Full description
Take part in a truly unique experience as you paraglide over the waters of Meditteranean sea and the iconic Algarve coastline, experiencing a short aerial flight. With the help of an experienced pilot, you don't need any previous training or experience to fly over and enjoy the spectacular views off the Portuguese coast. If you depart from the West Coast, fly over the dramatic Costa Vincentina, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  If you depart from the South, fly over white sand beaches, light water, and red clifts, using the  Algarve ‘s south breeze with its fantastic ocean smell to help guide your flight. Feel an immense feeling of euphoria when you return to back solid earth and be able to share this special memory with friends and family with complimentary photos and videos from your flight. The interaction with nature is immense, but the ecological footprint is minimal as the take-off zones are in natural areas clear of rocks and trees for safety, and nothing is changed or altered to accommodate this activity.

First it was parawaiting through fog and no wind. But Nelson is a real heart person and stayed confident and patient. In the time he explained us a lot about the Portuguese culture and landscape. At the end of the day we got the experience of our trip. Finally free to fly like a bird. Inside gladly again

Despite the fact that we both suffer from vertigo, we thought it was a very nice experience. Pilot Nelson is a super nice man who explains everything clearly. If you ever want to do this this is the perfect place. The view from the sky is fantastic! The only thing you have to take into account is that it may not be able to take place on the day you booked, due to the weather conditions, then it will be moved to another day.

Experience was more than great, it was a breathtaking experience. I would have loved to do it all over again, it's totally extraordinary to see everything from above and you sit comfortably and you don't have to jump, you don't really have to do anything and you don't need to be afraid at all because you just go into the air without anything to make it simply extraordinary you have to have done it once in a lifetime, super values more than 5 stars. Would do it again anytime until next year
