On the coast you can get good weather all year round. Depending on the exact direction and strength of wind, we will take you to the right spot within a short drive. The best time to fly on the beach is from September to May. The westerly winds tend to dominate on the coastline, allowing long soaring sessions until sunset.
Portugal is the hidden treasurebox in the SW corner of Europe. Its mediterranian landscapes rich in historical monuments, olive and cork trees, fishing villages with delicious food and wine along the whole country will leave you astonished. The portuguese are welcoming and warm-hearted people, always ready to help. Although we'll pass by famous spots, we will show you the real Portugal.
Portugal offers you high-quality flights throughout the whole country. From south, through western till north-east winds, you can find amazing spots along the several-hundred-kilometer-long coastline with huge diversity on the landscape from friendly sandy dunes to majestic rocky parts. Inland you will have the chance to fly big triangles on the less windy days and go really far when the conditions set in. Always challenging but safe conditions will surely improve your skills at all levels. Astonishing and unique landscapes will follow your flight, friendly vultures will help you to find the thermals and welcoming locals will ensure that you are not thirsty and hungry until retrieve arrives.
We offer a complete and mixed-trip. We will pick you up from Lisbon Airport and then head to our base for our costal flying in the surrounding area. Within easy reach there are plenty of take-offs along the coast. We will be chasing the good weather and exploring all different spots according to the current conditions. In case the weather does not allow flying in one day or another, there are plenty of alternative options to chose from (kite-surfing, sailing , caving, wine&food tasting, sightseeing, coastal trekking etc). This is ideal for paragliders and their non-flying companions.
Our offer covers different kinds of accomodation. You can chose to stay in simple hotels, appartment houses or flats, campsites. On the coastline we arrange accomodation in charming fishing cities/villages so you can easily have dinners, bars, etc. in walking distance. The accomodation is either in Lisbon city center - in a hostel - or in small villages in cosy rural houses which are comfortable, clean and fully-equipped. Dining out is never a problem in Portugal.
