Activity description

There is no better way to get the full picture of Rio de Janerio than from the skies. As you paraglide, Ipanema, Corcovado and the Pao de Acucar will seem just within arm's reach!

Just picture it, the warm tropical weather of the Brazilian coast, the sunny beaches under you, the cool breeze of the ocean...absolute paradise! Rio From Above will take you on a paragliding flight over Rio de Janeiro that will become a memory to cherish forever.

On an average day, during a paragliding flight in Rio de Janerio, you can see the Tijuca forest, an absolutely stunning landscape that seems like a green ocean of trees right in the heart and you will actually take of from there! The Tijuca National Park is one of the world's biggest urban forests.

Once you've met you pilot and got geared up, you'll take off and fly towards the coast. From the air, you'll witness São Conrado beach, Rocinha, one of Rio's most famous favelas, several mountains: Pedra Bonita, Pedra da Gávea, Dois irmãos. Rio's most well-known staples will unveil themselves in a new perspective: Pao de Acucar and the Christ of Corcovado!

Safety is one of RioFromAbove's top priorities and they will only fly if the conditions are suitable. If conditions are anything less than perfect before take-off, they will wait for them to improve or and try again another time.

It was a damn nice experience. I was picked up at the beach and taken up by fabricio and Elisa up. Everything was nicely explained and I was also given insights on details of paragliding. The flight was a a nice driving along the mountains skirting the clouds. Going down but also up which till now I didn’t knew was even possible. I was almost 20 mins in air and like all addictions ended up asking for more. Elisa and fabricio have 2 amazing children and speak excellent English. I felt like coming and meeting flight instructors but leaving as friends.
