Activity description

Admire the northeast of Gran Canaria and the city of Las Palmas from the air on a tandem paragliding flight from Los Giles!

A small hill inland from Las Palmas, Los Giles is the most popular site for paragliding in Gran Canaria. Located only 10 minutes from downtown Las Palmas, it is easily accessible and is one of the best take-off points to enjoy a paragliding flight in the northeast of Gran Canaria.

You will have the opportunity to admire from the sky during 15-20 minutes the city of Las Palmas, including its famous long beach of Las Canteras and its peninsula La Isleta, but also the amazing cliffs of the north coast of Gran Canaria, as well as the Atlantic Ocean. You can even see the coast of Tenerife to the west!

This paragliding flight from Los Giles will be done in tandem, with an experienced instructor who knows the incredible thermal currents of the north of Gran Canaria. You'll have a safe flight, with views of Las Palmas that you won't soon forget!

Me ha encantado. Agradezco la versatilidad del monitor y su ayudante, Alex y Alfredo, para cambiar de lugar ante la imposibilidad de hacerlo en Giles.

He nacido para volar. Ya he tenido otras experiencias antes: en globo, parapente con motor... Esta es la que más me ha gustado. Sin duda repetiré en breve.

We went up in the air for the full 40 minutes I booked. We used a lot of thermic to go up higher and higher and to fly along the coast. It was an awesome view!
