Paragliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies an aircraft called hang glider characterized mainly for its lightness as well as for being un-motorized and foot-launchable. Even though modern technology allows pilots to soar for hours and reach great altitudes, not long ago, pilots were restricted to gliding small hills on low-performance hang gliders.
An experience of paragliding in Rio de Janeiro will be memorable and unique. In addition to the common feeling of adrenaline invading your entire body, you will be surrounded by the Rio's most breathtaking landscapes of beaches and mountains, while a tropical but light breeze caresses your face, making you forget the common initial fear of not touching the ground. If you are planning a trip to Rio and you are open for some adventure, we strongly recommend to try this activity.
