Flying is a dream of many but accomplished by a few. The reason being, not every individual has the courage to go the extra mile by taking that risk. But the ones who do embrace the risk, experience the most thrilling ride of their lives. In Tenerife, people usually find it difficult to resist flying due to the overwhelming sight of paragliders in the sky. Digging deep into it, tandem paragliding flight from Izaña is one of the best aerial excursions in all of Europe.
Read along to discover the true feeling upon taking tandem flights in Tenerife.
Flight From Izaña
It does not happen every day when you get to the height of 2300m and fly all the way down to the sea level. Considered to be one of the best paragliding journeys in Europe, the flight from Izaña takes the experience of flying to a whole new level. It is an enthralling journey that surpasses your imagination with its enormousness and uniqueness. Taking up this journey is not a child’s play as many people would not fancy their chances of flying from an altitude of above 2000m. But those who do take it can go back home with a feeling of accomplishment.
In the tandem flight, you are harnessed to the paraglider and are seated with a professional pilot who is in charge of the glider. One of the many advantages of a tandem flight is that it allows the participants to make the most of their time in the air. Tourists get a bird’s eye view of the spectacle of nature from a not so regular height that surely leaves them awestruck.
After the regular safety drill, the flight is ready for take-off as the instructor gets the paraglider in shape. The launch takes place after a minor sprint to gain momentum. Once you are off the ground, there is no looking back as the paraglider soar higher into the skies and all you can see are the clouds, mountains, fellow paragliders, and magnificent natural beauty.
The journey commencing from the height of above 2000m is bound to last for a decent amount of time, 45 minutes to be specific. Weather conditions play a crucial role in deciding the trajectory of the flight as the take-off could either be from Izaña Norte (Izaña North) or Izaña Sur (Izaña South). When the launch is from Izaña Norte, the flight takes you over the valley of La Orotava. If the flight takes off from Izaña Sur, the journey is over the Valley of Güímar. In both the trajectories, majestic views of Mount Teide, the highest mountain in Spain, is a common sight.
The Izaña Norte flight journey terminates with the landing at Puerto de La Cruz and that from Izaña Sur ends with the touchdown at Puertito de Güímar. Due to the altitude from where it takes off makes it one of the unique paragliding journeys.
In case you want to fly from a lower height, paragliding flights in Adeje is a viable option.
