Paragliding in Medellin : An Exhilarating Experience
If you’re an adventure seeker looking to get amazing footage of a picturesque valley, look no further than Paragliding in Medellin. An activity for all ages, paragliding is the perfect way to step out of your comfort zone and get unreal views of Medellin.
Each week, we send groups of people up to San Felix which is a small town located just 40 minutes away from Medellin. Within these groups there are always one or two people that wait until the last minute to build up the courage to fly.
What is Paragliding?
Many confuse paragliding with parasailing and hang gliding so we wanted to clear the air and make this distinction.
Paragliding is an activity that was born in the 1960s and was created as a parachute. You and a trained professional are suspended under the parachute and the expert will steer the fabric wing to do all sorts of spins and flips (if requested). This is not to be confused with hang gliding where a pilot flights a firm lightweight glider off a cliff. Sounds the same but hang gliding requires you and the pilot to be lying down in prone position while paragliding is you the pilot sitting down. Paragliding is more comfortable and less scary if you’re a beginner.
Paragliding in Medellin
Paragliding in Medellin is an experience like very few others. It is the thrill of flying combined with amazing views of the Aburra Valley. Bring your GoPro and you’ll have a great opportunity to film this entire experience, from the moment you’re asked to run out and jump off a questionable cliff, to the instant you land and everything in between.
Daytime Tours in Medellin
Out of all of our daytime tours and excursions, there is no tour that divides groups as much as paragliding. If you’re here with a group, most people can consent to participating in ATV tours in Medellin and even take the 2-hour trip to the beautiful Guatape. Paragliding in Medellin is a whole other animal.
With acrophobia (fear of heights) reaching the top 5 phobias humans have, paragliding is without a doubt out of the question for many. For those still left that are open to trying new experiences, this daytime activity will help clear your mind plus provide you with great photographic memories of this amazing city.
The tour itself is focused on paragliding, of course, but the tour also has our clients visit a small town and mingle with locals. Dozens of ‘Paisas’ gather around the area where these adventure seekers take flight and use this space to fly their drones, walk their dogs and even go on dates.
