Owner description: Fly a Paraglider in Rio de Janeiro! Paragliding instruction and tandem flights from the Pedra Bonita take off in Sao Conrado beach, Rio de Janeiro. Soar like a bird over the Tijuca National Forest, see the city's most stunning landmarks from up above, and land on Sao Conrado beach. Come and see Rio from a different angle!

I went for one afternoon from Sao Paulo to Rio only to do the hang gliding. Therefore I had pretty high expectations. I am flying single engine and acrobatic aircrafts sometimes but the hang gliding especially at this location is an experience of its own. Everything was great. Especially the team is professional from top to bottom. They take their job very serious, have tons of experience from competitions and speak English very well. (However, my pilot used to say sorry for his poor English, it was more than good enough). The guys have seen the world already during their competitions and also for working as instructors for other sports (Skiing, Climbing etc.) so no matter where you come from you will feel familiar and warmly welcomed.
Great stuf!

Me and my two friends decide to make a Paragliding over Rio, because we thought Rio is the best City to do so. And it definitely was! The view was breathtaking and Daniel and his team were just the best Paragliding team, we could ask for. With their kind and helpful behaviour, they make our trip awesome.

Befor we decide to go, I asked him a lot of things at WhatsApp and he answeder me everything very patiently.

Daniel and Christopher speak fluent english. When I told Daniel that I am high frightend, he tried to help me out of it.
Even my wish in the air, to fly over a favela, he tried to fulfill.
At the end you get all your pictures and videos at an USB-Stick, which is very nice.

So a huge thank you for this great experience and see you next time in Rio!

(The photo shows me and Daniel right before our flight.)
