Boasting numerous incredible mountain ranges as well as plenty of stunning scenery, Spain is an ideal spot for all sorts of aerial sports trips.
Paragliding and paralpinism are among the most popular. Heading to the Sierra de Guadarrama, just outside of Madrid, is one of the top places to practice the sport.
Relatively short and easy ascents up some of the range’s highest peaks means gaining significant altitude in a hurry is not too hard. From here, it is a long way back down with plenty of great views en route.
For something a little bit different head to the volcanic slopes of the Canary Islands. Jump from the summit of the volcano on Tenerife and enjoy incredible views of the forested island below as well as the shimmering Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
Spring and autumn have warmer temperatures (20ºC - 25ºC) and are generally sunny and dry. Summer can be quite hot, which might make climbing a bit tougher, but the days are almost all sunny, clear and beautiful. Winter is generally quite cool with temperatures hovering around freezing. In the mountains, it gets considerably colder and in the north a bit wetter too.
This largely depends on where you are heading. Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD), Barcelona–El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport (BCN) and Málaga Airport (AGP) are three of the main airports in Spain. From any of these, you will find connecting flights to more minor airports, as well as transportation by bus, train of rental car to your final destination.
