Absolutely worth the money! Flying lasted about 7 minutes but the experience was breathtaking and it really felt like a rollercoaster drop after the we ran off the run way but then everything felt smooth as we flew to the beach landing. This was my first time doing such an activity but it went flawless and I felt safe as the organizers strapped me up with my guide. I received an email and WhatsApp message from the organizer about a day before the event. I was told to arrive at one location in the morning which I did. From there I met my guide and paid the reals fee for insurance. Then we drove in a car up a mountain passageway. My guide then told me to relax as they began setting up preparations. Keep in mind, some fly suits have a small pouch for you to put stuff in but I’d suggest not bringing much besides your phone (to save pictures) and money. They offer many options for you to buy photos and video of your flight through their GoPro. Highly recommend this activity.

Amazing experience!! I have been wanting to hang glide for years and am glad I was able to do it in RIO! I went with my mother and father who are both 60+. My mother has Alzheimer's but she wanted to see me hang glide, there was complications with her but the guide and team made sure she was able to watch. Thank you so much, it means a lot!

This was my first time hang gliding and I was naturally a bit apprehensive. The entire process was super smooth and everyone of the company very professional. There are lots of safety checks and government regulation in place to make sure that every flight is a safe one. My pilot Beto was excellent and made the flight really enjoyable. It was a smooth landing on the beach definitely a bucket list moment I’m grateful I did.
