How does paragliding in Rio work?

Unfortunately it was raining when I was in Rio de Janeiro so I couldn’t do it 😩. 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 paragliding over Rio de Janeiro’s coast

During a paragliding 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.
