Description

Do you dare to try some paragliding in Bariloche and fly over the amazing Patagonian landscape?

This exciting proposal that I bring today consists in a tandem paragliding flight. You will be accompanied by a certified pilot throughout the air route.

I think that paragliding in Bariloche is an easy and fun way to try the wonderful feeling of being in the air while enjoying a stunning scenery from above. In addition, it is not necessary to have previous experience or an excellent physical condition. It is even an activity that children can do if they are authorized by their parents. However, there is a minimum and a maximum weight required for safety reasons. Passengers can not weigh more than 110 kg.

Normally this tandem flight over Bariloche takes between 10 and 20 minutes. But it will depend on the weather conditions of the moment. The complete activity will take us approximately 2 hours.

We will meet in the km 5 of the Pioneros Avenue, 15 minutes before the arranged time, where is the cable car station that ascends to the top of the Cerro Otto. We will get there by car (it will take about 20 minutes). The takeoff is from 1400 meters high, having about 580 meters of altitude change to the landing.

The feeling of flying in combination with the Patagonian landscape will make this experience unforgettable. Once in the air you will be able to enjoy the most incredible views of Bariloche: lakes and mountains everywhere and why not, some bird flying to our side!

The paragliding experience was unbelievable! Getting to see Bariloche and it's surrounding lake and mountains was breathtaking. I would definitely do this again. Pablo was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of experience paragliding. He gave clear instructions on how to take off and made you feel safe every step of the away. Throughout the trip, he will capture pics and videos for you to take home. He was very friendly and always looked out for your best interest.
