Imagine yourself flying above the Marvellous City… it sounds like a beautiful adventure, doesn’t it?

Hang gliding is one of the best things to do in Rio de Janeiro and I am very happy to tell you that our followers can go hang gliding in Rio de Janeiro with Best Fly Rio paying the lowest fare possible and getting photos and videos as a bonus, which is equivalent to R$100 discount.

How does hang gliding in Rio work?

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do it yet because the weather conditions were not favorable during my trip to Rio (it was raining 😩). But while I don’t do it myself, nothing prevents you from doing it, right?! That’s why I’ve gathered some information and have negotiated the best rate and benefits for you.

What you need to know before hang gliding over Rio de Janeiro’s coast

During a hang gliding flight in Rio de Janeiro, you can see the famous Pedra da Gávea, Tijuca Forest and São Conrado beach from above. This is undoubtedly an incredible and unforgettable experience!

You will be lying next to the instructor, both need to run a little to be able to take off, this being one of the moments of greatest adrenaline. You will be landing on the sand of São Conrado beach.

Why you should fly with Best Fly Rio

I got to know Best Fly Rio through the recommendation of friends who have flown with them, when researching more about them I noticed that it is one of the most experienced companies in the region and, in addition, it has a maximum score on Trip Advisor and also has a super competitive price. After I have added this coupon page, some LMTM followers flew with them and really enjoyed it.

Another point that I found amazing is that they have instructors who speak Portuguese, French and Spanish, so foreigners can go hang gliding in Rio with more tranquility and safety.

Speaking of tranquility, remember to wear comfortable clothes and closed shoes during the flight. The use of personal cameras is not allowed, so trust the records made by the Best Fly Rio team, because we got free images for you!
