Peru seen from the sky

Flight has always been a dream of man. Paragliding and hang-gliding enabled the fulfilment of this old desire. Soaring through Peruvian skies and seeing the sea, mountains and valleys is a truly gratifying experience. It is also a different way to appreciate Peru’s immense geography.

Paragliding in Peru offers a series of settings with beautiful landscapes in Lima and the country. There are companies that specialize in giving visitors the experience of travelling through the skies, with instructors registered with the Peruvian Free Flight Association (Asociación Peruana de Vuelo Libre).

Hang-gliding really took off around the world in the 1970s, when it became a universal pursuit. There are hundreds of fans of the sport in Peru, and, although it has lost ground to paragliding, it is a daring way of combining tourism and sports. The gliders currently used are 5 metres long when folded and 10 metres long when extended, weighing approximately 35 kilos. They are immensely strong, and advances in aerodynamic technology have made the gliders stable and manoeuvrable, with broad safety margins.
