Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    The Paragliding Medellin Tour, takes place 7,000 feet above sea level.

    We will be going towards the west of Medellin to a rural area looking for the perfect altitude.

    Our flights usually take around 15 minutes. However, this can vary depending on weather conditions.

    A Unique Paragliding View

    You will be flying over one of the best contrasts: hundreds of dairy farms as well as skyscrappers in the bottom of the valley.

    At all times you will be safe knowing that your licensed pilot is right there with you.

    Who Are The Pilots In Our Paragliding Medellin Tour?

    At  Medellin Day Trips we only hire local experienced pilots. Some of them started to work on this since they were 10 years old.

    They are all farmers' children that chose this profession instead of the rural duties.

    So by taking this tour you are  also supporting them.

    Remember we are a social focused agency, read more about us here.

    We Accompany You Throughout The Whole Process:
    • Pick you up at the hotel and take you there.
    • Help you with the sign-up process and the insurance registration.
    • Keep your belongings safe while you are flying.
    • Translate all the instructions the pilot gives you.
    • Drive you back to your hotel after the flight.NOTICE:

    Paragliding is a very weather dependent activity, so we are constantly adjusting dates, pickup times or straight out canceling the program if there is rain or strong winds.

    This tour was a highlight of our trip. Our party of six people aged from 21 to 72 all went on the flight. We all felt safe, and would do it again for sure. Where else can you jump off a mountain for 70 bucks? And survive? If you have the opportunity do not pass this up! Some

    Wow, what a wonderful experience. From the ride up the mountain road into the clouds, to the last stretch of hills and stairs that you must climb to get to the launching point. What a workout. Definitely thinner air up there and what a way to get your heart rate going. Good
