Summary of The Day: Flying has been one of humanity's most sought after dreams. It has been subject of fascination, passion and fantasy. On this tour you will have the chance to experience firsthand the magnificent feeling of flying without the help of an engine.
Those who try it, often find themselves hooked on the experience. Paragliding is a unique activity that makes mankind's desire of flying real and gives you the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful landscape while you linger and navigate gently through wind currents.
The trip starts at 10:00am from your hotel. We will drive you to La Cabaña Alpina, in the nearby village of Sopó - located at one-hour drive form Bogota. That is a perfect place to try one of the many dairy products of our region. There you will meet our pilot and drive up to the launching pad. When wind allows for it, you will run - accompanied with our expert pilot - on a tandem and softly rise up in the air making use of the thermal streams. For 20 minutes you will enjoy an amazing ride, with Bogota’s savannah and Andean landscape at your feet, as well as the Guatavita Lake in the distance.
After the flight and back on land, our driver will drive you safely back to your hotel in Bogota.
