Lake Atitlán has that special something - magical that makes you want to stay there and simply contemplate it. The lake is an immense crater flooded with a super volcano, which is surrounded by 3 other volcanoes. We leave from Panajachel in a pickup going up the mountain, passing picturesque villages. We arrived at the takeoff, and the view that awaits us is spectacular. A few minutes later you are floating in the air, enjoying this unique experience of seeing everything from above.

Who will I fly with?

You will fly with experienced pilots, who have been flying for a ling time, all trained and endorsed with international licenses like ÖAeC (Österreichischer Aero-Club, Austria), DHV (Deutscher Hängegleiterverband eV, Germany), FAVL (Argentine Free Flight Federation) and FEDEVIP - Venezuelan Fedration of Icarus and Paragliding

Why do we have weight restrictions with passengers?

The paraglider depends on natural thermic and dynamic updrafts encountered on the whole day. With average flying conditions, it gets difficult to keep the flying time we guarantee with a passenger weighing above 95Kg. (minimum 10 minutes). At the end, it will depend of the pilot`s judgement, whether to go to fly with a passenger of such weight or not.


A Paragliding flight depends on good climate, in order to fly well. If you are not able to fly on your schenduled date, due to bad weather, you can re-schedule your flight for another date, by contacting us.
