Guanabana Tours paragliding offers you spectacular views of either Medellin the city or the beautiful countryside east of Medellin. We have two flying parks to enjoy the bird's eye view you achieve soaring high in thermal currents on a paraglider.
Cost: 250,000 pesos.
- Programmed flight time is 15 mins but paragliding depends on air currents, not engines, so it could be less or it could be more.
- GoPro video and photography.
- Transportation in private vehicles
with AC and English speaking guide.
Paragliding arrived to Medellin in 1993. Many of the instructors here are local campesino kids from the small rural towns where we practice this sport that literally grew up in the paragliding scene finding in it a trade that kept them from otherwise working the fields. The talent pool here is unreal. National and international champions have come out of Colombia.
The flying here is world class due to a fortuitous combination of geographical and meteorological conditions that make it flyable almost every day of the year. You will have an adrenaline charged experience in the safe hands of our professional certified licensed pilots that you will never forget!
Note: Paragliding is a very weather dependant activity so we are constantly adjusting dates, pickup times, or straight out cancelling the program if there is rain or strong winds, any of these can happen at last moment and even after driving up to the launch site, but it is rare that flights are cancelled up on the hill, but it happens. Flight time is programmed for 15 mins, but we always make clear that we depend on air currents, not engines, so time can be more or it can be less.
Included in the price is pickup in private SUV with English speaking driver/guide that will pick you up and take you to one of our two flight parks, accompany you during all activities, then after flights drive you back home. We have our own team of pilots waiting and ready to go as soon as you arrive. With Guanabana Tours there is no waiting around. Included are GoPro video and pictures which we always check after each flight and before leaving the area to make sure they came out all right.
Technical glitches are way too common with cameras and micro SD cards and in case they did not work correctly we suit you up and take you airborne again (if the weather allows), as many times as it takes (really, it's in our reviews). We've even had cases where glitches have occurred but only discovered that evening when clients have returned to their hotel, so we pick up our clients next day and fly them again, no extra charge at all!
Medellin is famous for its quickly changing weather so if it happens that we arrive and it is not a flyable day due to rain or wind direction, we return you to your place of residence and do not charge you anything at all, nada, not a peso for transportation or anything and we try to reprogram you for the next day if possible.
Besides guaranteeing prompt service thanks to our own private team and equipment, with Guanabana Tours there is no hiking up steep hills to arrive out of breath to the launch pad, we drive our SUVs up the narrow dirt road that leads directly to the launch pad.
Flight is 95% of the time top-landing (landing up on the same spot we launch) but if it happens that there is a bottom landing we have transportation ready for you. We are always with our clients from pick-up to drop-off. Flight is with certified licensed pilot, GoPro video/ photos, and travellers risk insurance. Flight time is programmed to be 15 mins but due to the fact that we depend on the weather and air currents, not engines, flights can be shorter or longer.
Please bring a sweater or jacket and shoes that cover toes completely
