The flying is quite varied, from cliff soaring, in the beach or in the coast, to thermal flying and cross country. Thermals are gentle and our current distance record stands for 52 km, while the island is 65 km long. Lots of places where you can soar until you have enough and just wonna land and relax... We fly all year round, but usually the best season is from May to October.
The experience takes place in the biggest and more varied island of the archipelago, São Miguel. I have 22 years of flying experience in this island and will guide you to our best places and take offs, and help you make the best out of your flying day. We fly all year round, but usually the best season is from May to October. Once you take off you will understand why it is so overwhelming to fly in this island.
Plenty of other activities are possible, like whale whatching, trekking, bicycle, swimming in the ocean, visiting hot springs, or just go out and enjoy our luxuriant nature, immerse on our ancient culture, taste our typical food, or relax in the beach bar..
