Have you ever wanted to soar like a bird? Paragliding in the Azores is some of the best in the world. It is incredibly easy to get airborne.

If you have never paraglided before, book a tandem flight with instructors Jose or Arnaldo. You may like the look of paragliding, but being up in the air in the hot seat will be a very different experience. Booking a tandem flight, where a professional can show you what it’s like to fly with the birds minus the added stress of controlling the giant banana-shaped piece of fabric above your head.

Have some experience; Excellent, we have you covered. If vertigo didn’t get to you during your tandem flight, you may want to take the experience further and become a pilot. To do this you’ll need to book a course with certified professionals, who’ll take you from soulless ground dweller to sky god in no time. Paragliding can be quite expensive in the early stages, but once you’re setup with a licence and equipment, there’s only the cost of getting to the spots where you can fly.
