Retrieve (XC)

We have the best climate conditions in southern Spain, allowing us to fly the whole year round, especially in winter while the rest of Europe is frozen. Even in this time of the year we can fly great thermals at 18-20ºC! The mountains of Algodonales are one of the best paragliding spots in southern Spain and one of the most popular in Europe, especially in autumn and winter. During the spring it is a great thermic site and has good cross country potential, even for pilots who are looking for their first XC flight. But it is also an easy place for beginners, full of big landing areas. The coast is just one hour away and offers two other easy coastal flying sites above sand dunes.

The Destination

Algodonales is a famous paragliding destination known for it's great weather conditions during the winter months, and allowing a nice escape from the northern cold. Not only will you be flying but you will be enjoying the culture and the real people of Spain. Algodonales is also ideally situated for visiting the surrounding great cities and sights of interests such as Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz and Costa del Sol.

The Experience

We offer paragliding tours in Algodonales and the surrounding areas. At your diposal will be a paragliding guide service and thermal tuition which will allow you to maximise your time flying the best sites. You won't waste your precious time trying to find the best places to fly every day. We have more than twelve different spots within easy reach. We fly not only in the mountains, but also in the coast, and we don't mind to drive two hours to the place with the best weather if necessary! We won't be a simple “taxi driver” just cruising around to show you where the landing field and the takeoff spots are. We want to go beyond that and take you further.

In the daily briefings, we will check the best weather forecast together in our classroom, we will then visit the landing areas before flying and we will advise you about the local flying in each site. Our guided tours are run by experienced instructors who’s main goals are not just with those pilots that fly the furthest, but having an active role in developing the skill and progresses of everyone in the group.

You will benefit from the deep local knowledge of the instructors. Most of the paragliding foreigners guides and instructors come here just for a few months during the winter season and after that they go back home. But all our staff are local Spanish pilots. We were born here and we have learned to fly in these mountains. We do know our place!
