Cheap flights and generally good weather make Southern Europe ideal for Paragliding holidays. We have many years experience running paragliding holidays abroad to France, Spain, Austria, Greece and Morocco. To paraglide, beginners need gentle safe slopes and stable conditions, with the more Advanced Pilot requiring larger sites with conditions suitable for cross country flights.

A guide to Airsports Paragliding Holidays in Europe.

Complete Beginners
will require, stable, light wind conditions with little or no thermal activity, low slopes for the first few days and then higher sites with large landing and take off areas. France in May and September is normally ideal, Spain in November and February can be good.

Elementary to Club Pilot
paragliding Holidays abroad are perfect for completing your Club Pilot tasks. With good weather this can be achieved in one week and normally some thermal flying as well! Nearly all the guests on our paragliding holidays have met each other while training for their Elementary pilot and this makes for a fantastic atmosphere.

We love flying abroad but please remember Paragliding abroad is not the same as paragliding in the UK and unless you only intend to fly abroad we would recommend taking your Elementary Pilot in the UK and then complete your Club Pilot on a holiday. Although the weather is generally more consistent abroad it is by no means guaranteed, There can be weeks with little or no training even in Southern Spain. Please call if you require further advise.
