As you look up to the sky, you feel the fresh air on your face. You run like crazy until the parachute lifts you into the air and all of a sudden you're soaring over the trees. It feels as if you could touch them with your tiptoes. Looking back, you see Mount Teide. Looking down, you see the steep slopes lined with pine trees, vast valleys of banana plantations and volcanic black sand beaches for you to land on.

Of the main paragliding spots, the easiest to get to are:

  • North - Los Realejos.
  • South-west - Adeje.
  • East - Güímar.

To make the most of these areas, it is very important to be under the supervision of local pilots or companies. Although there are no official infrastructures for take-off or landing, these are the areas that people currently use. If you have any questions, contact the Air Sports Federation.
