Flight schedule

Paragliding companies offer 3 flights a day, 7 days a week: 10:30 AM12 PM and 2 PM.

For best conditions, the sun needs to have been out long enough to heat the earth and create the thermals necessary for lift. The early morning flights tend to be a bit less than 30 minutes as the thermals haven’t developed yet. If you’re looking for a clam, less turbulent flight, this is the best time.

By 11:30 AM, the thermals have become active and the best conditions for paragliding are in place. If you want to get your money’s worth, this is the best time to fly.
