HANG GLIDING & PARAGLIDING IN PATAGONIA



The opportunity of flying like a bird, letting oneself go by the Patagonian wind, has no age limit. The experience may last a few minutes or several hours. In some places you can rent equipment and take some lessons.

Recommended places

General Roca
It is one of the ideal places for hang-gliding. Every weekend you can see these "birds" flying the skies.

El Bolsón
At Piltriquitrón Peak instructors can be hired. You only need to be fit and daring.

Rada Tilly
Its quiet beaches and cliffs can be appreciated from the sky. If the wind takes you, you can even get to see the sea lions colony south of the town.

Cinco Saltos
In this location in Río Negro there is a hang-gliding school. There, you can practice tow-assisted flying, as the low heights do not allow good launchings.




HANG GLIDING & PARASAILING IN BARILOCHE


Bariloche Adventure Travel & Tours...

Patagonia Pictures - PARAGLIDING IN BARILOCHE - Adventure Travel in PatagoniaSan Carlos de Bariloche is, perhaps, the most thrilling place to practice this sport that attracts those who seek the meaning of life on the horizon. It is an activity that combines adventure and scenic landscapes, since from the heights you get the best panoramic vantage points in the area.

Hang-gliding or paragliding is an activity that is suitable for all ages, and is practiced all year round. However, it is a good idea to receive proper and responsible instruction in the handling of the equipment guaranteeing familiarity with the sail, and the local climate and relief. So six days of good weather should be enough for you to fly in search of adventure.

Neither special skill nor physical fitness is required, nor is there a minimum age limit, since no major effort is demanded from the "pilot". It is recommended that rookie flights be made on two-seater gliders, together with an experienced instructor. Those who show keener interest can take beginners' courses, with theoretical and practical content.

The climate is a permanent question mark for paragliding due to its variability. The winds should be under 30 km/hour.

Patagonia Pictures - PARAGLIDING IN CERRO CATEDRAL - Adventure Travel in PatagoniaIdeal places for descent include Mt Otto and Mt Catedral, which are easily reached by chairlifts. Hang gliding can also be practiced from the "Anfiteatro" and Mt Villegas to the north, where there usually is a soft north wind.

In order to be as safe as thrilling, the flight should both keep its magic, while it loses its mystery. This is achieved when the necessary theory is learned and the instruments are properly handled.




HANG GLIDING & PARASAILING IN PUERTO MADRYN


Puerto Madryn Adventure Travel & Tours...

Anywhere in the world, a chance to view a city from the air is an unforgettable experience. More so when that city is Puerto Madryn, where you have the chance of jumping from a mountaintop crag, balancing in the wind, and filling your soul to bursting point with the sound of the wind blowing in your face and a spectacular view of valleys, forests and Cordillera streams. Altogether, one of the greatest delights you are likely to ever experience.

In this entrancing corner of Patagonia, natural and unique scenarios unfold one after another, providing "bird's-eye views" that will delight both experts and novices alike.

One of these options is Lake Puelo, where you can share your hang-glider with expert professional instructors that fly with you in tandem. Another option is a one-hour air excursion to admire the coastline from Lobería de Punta Loma up to the Ameghino Isthmus, in light aircraft from the Puerto Madryn Flying Club. For the more adventurous, there is also a chance to fly over the city in "ultra-light" planes.
