Full description
First, listen to a short briefing from the world's most safe and experienced Hang Glider 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 about 7 steps over the edge of the platform. Any fear you may have will soon disappear and you will experience a very unique 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. Land safely on a sandy beach in São Conrado and enjoy some refreshments as you watch others come in to land.

I gas the best experiente of ma Life! We had to postpostone it a few days due to bad weather but finally the day arrived! ( December 2019) They picked me up at my location and we went to the spot where I got all information and guidance and especially met the pilot: Klaus! The best so far!

I had booked a German guide for two people. Unfortunately it didn't exist and in English. Then we would have to pay 60rael for the club fee. Despite the long wait between the individual jumps from us, it was a unique experience that I can only recommend. A fantastic view and also a long flight due to the great weather conditions.

Amazing experience and spectacular views

The instructor did not speak Spanish (in the reservation he had expressly requested it) he had an unprofessional attitude, he was late and he started joking with the controllers when we had everything ready and already in position for takeoff. We expected the wind to be in our favor and ready to start running and taking off. All the while he was telling me to look at the camera and start greeting the people of the skyscrapers, a lot of show. When landing everything went well and very safe but minutes before you almost took a lady who was on the beach. A lot of insistence in general with selling the videos at exorbitant prices to do business include several cameras and then you have to wait when you have finished a good time to be sent the video.
