    Good spot up the hill with nice platform for the paragliding and handling. Go pro footage is a bonus.

    Do it!
    Donald_H, Dec 2022
    The ride up the mountain, and the preparation for it were as wonderful and enjoyable, as the flight, and the landing! It was very safe with a thoughtful process throughout. I would not trade this experience for anything in the world!

    Experience of a lifetime

    What a great experience. Luiz and Daniela were great. They explained in detail all the steps and safety was a top priority. Once we lifted off it was an experience of a lifetime.
    10/10 Experience
    Lee_M, Aug 2022
    I was unlucky because there was heavy rain on the day of my original booking. The team reached out to me to schedule a new time that worked around my schedule. They were extremely flexible and accommodating. Although it was still a bit rainy and windy on the day/time that we decided, we still went to the top of the mountains to "test" if it was safe enough to fly. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this group if you'd like to hang glide or paraglide. Seeing the city from that perspective (with an extremely knowledgeable and safe pilot) was the highlight of my time in Rio. 10/10 experience.
    Great time flying

    I went parasailing with a friend. We wanted to go on Wednesday but it was cloudy, Daniela contacted me to offer us a good spot for Thursday. It was a great tip! Daniela and Luiz are very nice people! My friend was a bit nervous but it immediately disappeared. We didn’t have to wait for anything (except for the right wind). Waiting for the right wind took long this day, but it was totally worth it! I felt safe and had a lot of fun! It’s a great view and Luiz is a very enthusiastic guy. I already told my friends they should go here as well!
    Best Experience. Winter...

    Paragliding in Rio
    Raul_L, Jul 2022
    Alex and Daniela are the chilliest couple in Rio! It is a great experience. We also noticed a girl that got nervous last minute and Alex reassured her and make her super comfortable to go thought the experience 10/10
    David_P, Jul 2022
    I was so lucky as it was really misty but it cleared briefly and off we went. A truly memorable experience. Great fun
    Great experience great service!!
    ManuelAlejandro_M, Jul 2022
    Daniela and Luis are great!! I am afraid of heights but their treatment and knowledge make the experience the best, fun and safe, I have no doubt that whoever has this experience will be very pleasant!
    WOW!!!!!!!! RIDE OF A LIFETIME!!!!!!
    Preethi_R, Jul 2022
    If I could give 6/5 stars, I would!!! Dani and Luis were absolutely incredible!!!! They made sure that the timing of the paragliding was safe and suitable with the wind patterns and talked my friend and me through each step. You can get photos for free but only pay if you want the backup camera photos for 200 real, TOTALLY worth it. Highly recommend this experience!!!!!
    First time Hang Gliding
    Damien_R, Jul 2022
    Had an amazing time going hang gliding for the first time. The hosts of the event made me feel safe and comfortable. Not to mention they were full of energy and kept everything exciting. I would definitely travel back here to do it again!

    Great experience, a must do in Rio Good communication befor the event, great people, great spot emphasis on safety, felt safe at any time made excellent films/photos using an additional 360 degree camera that allows a total 360 degree view of your flight, not sure if other operator provide this Highly recommended
