Fantastic experience in every way. Luiz and Daniela are super friendly, and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible experience. Everything was done safely and professionally, and the experience was more enjoyable than can be expressed in words! If you're gonna do one activity in Rio, make sure it is this one!

Professional, safe, and FUN!

Luiz and Daniela speaks well in English and were able to discuss the process thus making you feel confident you’re in good hands. They follow safety protocols before flying. Luiz was the pilot, and during the flight he gave a little tour guiding and tips, makes sure you’re comfortable, and took great videos and photos. Daniela took great pictures and videos too from her phone while I was up flying and share it with me. She even taught me how to use the Insta360 app! These two love their job and it shows! So the activity was more FUN than expected. It made me love Rio more! Thank you both and I'll see you around.
Wonderull experience
Jules_B, Apr 2023
Luiz Ireno and Daniela were very friendly for our first time paragliding. The flight was amazing, we felt very safe, Luiz Ireno explaining us the surroundings and how paragliding works ! Thank you again for that experience. We highly recommend
Best experience ever!
Nicola_B, Apr 2023
Had the best paragliding trip with Luiz and Daniela! They speak very good English and explained everything that was going to happen! The views are amazing and Luiz is a fun and very experienced pilot who let me control the parachute so I could fly it by myself! If your thinking of doing it just book it now! :-)
Fun paragliding experience!
Daven_R, Mar 2023
Daniela and Luis were great! Their energy and smiles were infectious. They messaged us the day before to see if we could come earlier because it was going to be cloudy in the afternoon. The process was smooth and we left with a pretty cool experience and videos of it.
Powerful Paragliding
Tanis_H, Mar 2023
Luis and Daniela were fantastic! They made our experience perfect! They were welcoming on our arrival, explaining exactly how our paragliding event would be done, and made sure that our experience was safe as well as adventurous.
The Best View In Rio
Uriel_M, Mar 2023
Daniela helped make the process so efficient and easy; happy to answer all questions around safety and concerns. Luis (who I flew with) had such a love for flying and made the whole experience incredible. Trust him, listen to him and just go with the flow 🤙🏻 Would absolutely do again with them.

One for the books

Omg, I had an amazing time yesterday. My heart was racing at first but my instructor made me relaxed and before you know it we were running down the runway and off we went. I conquered my fear and now I’m the envy of all my friends and family. They’re signing up Thursday.
Awesome, awesome,...
Anna_S, Mar 2023
Awesome, awesome, awesome! Professional staff, wonderful views, amazing experience and memories for the rest of your life!
Simply Amazing
AndrewFaulkes, Mar 2023
Amazing, simply amazing. Everyone involved was great. We were running late due to the taxi driver taking us to a different location, but no a problem once we contact the operator.
The best you will find
Wilsonlawoffice, Mar 2023
I have done many activities in many parts of the world and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Luiz and Daniella was the best, safest, most organized adventure I have ever been on. If you want to paraglide or hangglide in Rio look no further than these two, they are the best of the best.
Exhilarating experience
John_R, Mar 2023
Our hosts, Luiz, Andres and Dani were incredible. Both extremely friendly and explained everything about the experience in detail before taking us to the launch platform. The flight was exhilarating. Highly recommended
A must if you are in Rio!
Daniel_K, Mar 2023
I had a limited window of time with which to do this. The appointed day ended up being a wash because the wind wasn't good. Daniela was kind enough to reach out to me every day I was in town to give me a weather report and let me know time options that work for her team for my to fly. Finally on the last possible time that would work, I was able to get my flight in. IT WAS INCREDIBLE! My pilot had 40+ years of experience, we rode 'thermals' and did some tricks, got incredible footage, and felt safe throughout.
Amy_F, Feb 2023
Luiz and Daniela were great! We had an amazing time! They were both very personable and a lot of fun! Such a great way to celebrate a birthday in Rio! I would definitely fly with them again!!
Do this!!!
Alison_N, Feb 2023
Absolutely amazing time. The tour guides/pilot were super fun, shared some history on the way up the mountain, and made sure all of my questions were answered. And there’s NOTHING like floating over all of Rio and looking down from the sky. This was an incredible experience and I’d absolutely book with them again
Great afternoon
Alan_W, Feb 2023
What an awesome experience…great views and a once in a lifetime afternoon experience. My pilot Eduardo let me take control and do a few maneuvers…asked if I like extra adrenaline…so we did some upside down maneuvers…fantastic afternoon all around. Cannot recommend this experience enough!!!
Paragliding in Rio!
Tyshawn_O, Jan 2023
This was a great experience, had lots of fun viewing this beautiful country while paragliding. Luiz was an excellent pilot instructor with many years of experience. Daniela provided great information & assisted me with the footage & 360 video visuals of my journey. I recommend to anyone who would love to see Rio from an awesome view in the sky.
