1-Day Sacred Valley Paragliding Tour

Tour Itinerary

Explore our expertly designed itinerary below, crafted to showcase breathtaking views and provide unique adventures every step of the way.

Cusco – Sacred Valley – Cusco

  • 8:00 AM: Begin your adventure with a drive to the picturesque Chinchero area, nestled in the high hills of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This early start is designed to capture the magic of the rising thermals that emanate from the valley walls. These are the same thermals that the majestic condors utilize to ascend to the skies.
  • Morning Instructions: Upon arrival, meet your experienced pilot who will brief you about the day’s activities. Dive deep into the intricacies of the weather conditions, learn the fundamentals of paragliding, and get acquainted with the equipment. As you gear up, feel the anticipation build while waiting for that perfect gust of wind to launch into the air.
  • The Flight: As you sprint and leap from the hill’s edge, feel the rush of adrenaline. Soon, you’ll be soaring over the Sacred Valley, marveling at the panoramic vistas below. Gaze down at the sprawling landscapes of the Huaypo lagoon and let the serenity of flight envelop you. Depending on the day’s conditions, you can expect to be airborne for approximately 15 to 30 minutes, reaching awe-inspiring altitudes.
  • Return Journey: After touching down and absorbing your incredible paragliding experience, it’s time to head back to Cusco. Arrive in the city by the afternoon, with memories of your flight etched in your mind.
Note: Paragliding is a weather-dependent activity. While every effort is made to ensure a successful flight, be prepared for a full-day experience. The last opportunity to take to the skies is typically around 4 pm.
