How long does it take to go paragliding?
In ideal conditions, this activity just requieres half the day. We leave Cusco city in the morning around 08:00 hrs and return by 13:30 hrs. Afternoon departures are scheduled for 14:00 hrs. However we schedule these afternoon flights usually from September to May because of the strong wind. If you’d like to fly in the afternoon but you’re coming during the other months, contact us first to check weather forecasts.
Please, remember paragliding is about patience. We wait for the best conditions in order to fly. There’s no rush in this activity. The point is to keep it safe.
During the rainy season, the waiting time can go longer. So, let us know if you have some other activities scheduled for the rest of the day, as tours or flights out.
Do I need previous experience?
Since you fly together with a professional pilot, there’s no need for previous experience as you go as a passenger. Safety briefing will be given anyway at the flying spot.
How long does the flight itself last?
The tandem paragliding flight can last from 12 to 30 minutes. It obviously depends on weather conditions. But at the same time, it depends on how you’re feeling.
