Paragliding is a tandem flight that can be done in the Andes everyday. Anyone under 100kg can take part of it. Depending on the site conditions, the experienced pilot can fly from 20 to 40 min. Paragliding begins at 1600m. A couple of steps are enough and the take off begins. Most of the year there are good wind conditions that make possible this exciting tadem flight.

You might even land on the the same place you started.

The drive to the paragliding site goes through the cactus canyon of las Gonzales. The ride begins on 900m. Half an hour over an earth road takes us to just to the paragliding site. Once there the pilot prepares the equipment and looks for the right harness for everyone. After it one after the other takes off and experiences his or her special and unforgettable moment.
