Suitability – All Levels
To find out if you're suitable visit our pilot levels
Portugal is a natural holiday destination for fliers and non-fliers alike so you can bring a partner or family along on this trip with confidence that everyone will have a great trip.
Lisbon is a historic city full of life with great restaurants and night life. The beaches and lovely coastal towns are very unspoiled and inland there are mountains and forests.
The town of Nazaré which is local to our base is particularly appealing with high cliffs, great cafes and restaurants and narrow streets going down to the sea. The whole coast is a surfing paradise with the biggest waves in the world reported here!
We keep returning to Portugal in search of the best paragliding locations. The whole country is fantastic but the location we have chosen would be hard to beat. An hour or so north of Lisbon on the coast is the beautiful town of Nazaré. We are located at a lovely camp site just north of the town offering close access to the four main flying sites we will be using with others nearby. The coast here offers predictable daily sea breezes with endless soaring possibilities and top landing areas. Cliffs and dunes stretch endlessly all along the coast. Within half an hour or so there are very impressive inland sites with varying wind directions.
Our trips are aimed at all levels of student with it being particularly suitable for low-airtime post CP pilots wanting plenty of relaxed airtime. The coastal sites are ideal for building up your flying hours and confidence.
IS IT FOR YOU?
If you want to get some excellent airtime with plenty of trouble-free relaxed paragliding in a very lovely environment, either on your own or with friends and family--then this is the one for you!
Our base is the Vale Paraiso tourist site. You will be sharing a self-catering chalet with all that you need for your time there. Each chalet has two bedrooms and fully fitted kitchen and bathroom. The site where we are based has excellent facilities.
Flights to Lisbon are from Manchester and Gatwick with TAP flight. There are other flights from all the major airports and at reasonable prices. EasyJet and Ryanair all offer cheap flights.
We will supply transport during your trip and airport transfers (provided you arrive and depart at the recommended times). Transport will include lifts to and from the flying sites, recreational trips or travel to a fantastic local restaurant.
