Go Paragliding in El Hierro

Fly over El Hierro and see it from a different angle. The constant presence of the trade winds in the higher areas of the island provide the best conditions for flying all year round.

It is the perfect setting for enjoying some paragliding. Enjoy amazing views, feel the freedom of the air and be in touch with the sea and the mountains. The perfect island and perfect sport for the more daring.

El Hierro is ideal for paragliding 365 days a year thanks to its geographical location and the gentle trade winds, whose currents help pilots stay up in the air for the longest hours possible. You will find numerous high-quality take-off areas all around the island so you can fly to new heights.

One of the most spectacular take-offs is Dos Hermanas – at an altitude of 1,200 metres. From there, you can enjoy one of the most fabulous views of El Golfo valley and the best conditions for paragliding. This is why El Hierro has become a must-do for fans of this sport.

The best views of El Hierro

Getting a bird's eye view of the island of El Hierro is one of the best experiences you can have in the Canary Islands. Climb up to the clouds and discover its peculiar volcanic scenery and the beauty of its coastline from the sky.

“Flying here is a huge visual explosion. I would stay up there eternally”

says Horacio Llorens, Aerobatic Paragliding World Champion

A panorama full of contrasts that are accentuated still more when seen from above: pine forests, juniper trees twisted by the trade winds, craggy mountains, green valleys, ropy lava that brings fame to the volcanic landscapes and small towns that altogether will make you never want to come down.

El Hierro is also experienced from the sky.
