What to Expect
Following pick-up from your hotel or apartment by air-conditioned vehicle, drive along the shore from Copacabana through Ipanema and Leblon to a hang gliding club in São Conrado.
Upon arrival, fill out all the necessary paper work and get a short briefing from the world's best tandem pilots. They will tell you about the take-off and other aspects of hang gliding before you get airborne. Then, glide smoothly through the tropical air after 7 steps over the platform! Any fear you may have will soon disappear and you will experience a sense of tranquility.
Enjoy bird's eye views of Rio de Janeiro's main attractions, including Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corcovado, Copacabana, Ipanema, Lagoa and Niteroi city on the other side of Guanabara Bay.
