There’s a first time for everything. And, once you try tandem paragliding, there’s usually a second and third. The wonderful feeling of flying over the world-famous Spanish landscapes, the wind moving with you, your feet far from the ground – well, it’s as awesome as it sounds. 

We meet in the morning at our chosen flight site, which is one of a few options. Having multiple sites ensures that if one location isn’t ideal for takeoff, we can easily start our trip at a different spot. Once we’ve got our equipment ready, our highly experienced pilot explains some safety rules and how he will make the takeoff, landing, and full flight as smooth as possible.  

With the harness secured and everything in place, the pilot lifts the glider off the ground and you run forward, the only bit of activity before you sail into the sky. There is no fitness level required, so no worries – it’s as easy as can be. 

You are lifted off the ground and begin steadily rising to your maximum height of 800 meters (2,260 ft). For 15-20 minutes, you look out at a world of shades of green, with bright colors of nature and towns in-between. The beautiful peaks of the Somosierra mountain pass rise below you as you sit in the air, feeling limitless.  

If you want to have your experience captured in photos or on video, this additional service is readily available. And if you’d like to focus on specific areas – forests, mountains, or villages – just let us know! We are more than happy to make this adventure as perfect for you as we can, so you can get the most out of your time up with the birds.

We had a fantastic time on the trip! Gabriel provided very clear instructions and our guide, Charlie, was great. He is an expert in canyoning and made sure that our whole family had fun (wife, daughter (13), son (16), and me). This trip will provide memories that we’ll keep forever!

The ballon flight was a fantastic experience which we thoroughly enjoyed.The tranpotation arrangements from Madrid were excellent. The staff was very ooperative and we enjoyed Daniel's (the pilot) explanations. One recommendation - please supply the participants with a helmet for the landing. Thank you Yaakov Straus

We had a lovely tour. Our guide was knowledgeable about Madrid and we saw some interesting places. He also gave us tips on other places to visit on our stay. We went places we wouldn’t have seen so would definitely recommend.
