Algarve Coast: Paragliding Experience

1. Algarve Coast: Paragliding Experience

Take part in a truly unique experience as you paraglide over the waters of Meditteranean sea and the iconic Algarve coastline, experiencing a short aerial flight. With the help of an experienced pilot, you don't need any previous training or experience to fly over and enjoy the spectacular views off the Portuguese coast. If you depart from the West Coast, fly over the dramatic Costa Vincentina, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  If you depart from the South, fly over white sand beaches, light water, and red clifts, using the  Algarve ‘s south breeze with its fantastic ocean smell to help guide your flight. Feel an immense feeling of euphoria when you return to back solid earth and be able to share this special memory with friends and family with complimentary photos and videos from your flight. The interaction with nature is immense, but the ecological footprint is minimal as the take-off zones are in natural areas clear of rocks and trees for safety, and nothing is changed or altered to accommodate this activity.
