Activity description


Challenge gravity and learn how to fly in the skies in Gran Canaria by taking your first paragliding course in Playa de las Canteras beach, in the northeast of the island. 

Aventuras en Canarias will take you above Las Palmas de Gran Canaria so you can enjoy one of the most exciting experiences of your life. This flight will not be as the normal tandem ones, as this will be the initiation course for becoming a pilot yourself.

You can enjoy this first lesson and learn theoretical aspects of this sport and, if you feel this is for you, you can take the entire paragliding course of 10 days!

Flying on top of Gran Canaria will give you the possibility to appreciate amazing panoramic views. This area is well known for its gorgeous cliffs and beaches. Also, you will see the Silva Bridge and the Agaete port.

Despite this will be the first lesson of a professional course, you will not need to do much in this initiation day, as your instructor will take care of the practical aspects and you will just need to enjoy and ask as many questions as you can meanwhile you receive the theoretical lessons. 

The flight program will change depending on the weather conditions, but normally, the route starts in Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, located near Las Canteras beach. There is no need for previous physical skills in order to practice it.
