Para Glider Day Tour Medellin Colombia

Hello this is Russell, let me tell you about this tour day on top of the mountain.

This is a day trip takes about 4 to 5 hours duration. Drive up the hill less than an hour, get you ready for a flight maybe have a snack and return.   We pick you up at your hotel or hostel in a air condition private car which can accommodate 3 to 4 people, more in your group we will bring the “van”.   Pick-up time is around 9:00 to 9:30 am, flight are all most everyday weather permitting.  Rain does not mean cancellation as on top of the mountain the weather at the other end of the valley could be sunshine !! That is Medellin.

Takes less than an hour drive, depends upon the traffic to reach the Para Glider Port.   Here you will be given briefing from a certified Para Glider instructor, all flight are “dual” meaning your attached to the instructor.   The total flight time is around 30 to 40 minutes gliding around.

We bring a “sack lunch” which is included,  always available are a few bottles of water or soda is ready in our cooler.  Nothing fancy, but there is no food on top of the hill, a sandwich with chips n fruit plus a granola bar is a welcome site while your up at the Glider Port.  All left over food is donated to the homeless on the  return trip off the mountain.

Safety is always a item, the Para Glider company uses only new modern equipment, it is a concern of ours too, they do not fly in bad weather, if the day turns, they will land or not be taking off due to thunderstorms which do happen.

Check out the video, if you wish to book a tour, we would be happy to take you on top of the hill for an afternoon.   Cost is per person, minimum of two with four being the max for a private auto.
