 Welcome to the only original Rio Hang Gliding, operated by international competition champion, Hang Gliding master Konrad Heilmann and his team. Hang gliding lanzarote is part of our new "Rio Hang Gliding on the Road" project, which consists in bringing our hang gliding adventure to people in different places around the world.

Hang gliding over Lanzarote is a very special experience. You will have the unique sensation of flying like a bird, with a light breeze of tropical air in your face and surrounded by the beautiful volcanos, mountains and beaches of Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is the Canary Island where the exotic beauty of nature is strongly present. This is where the volcanic mountains rise out of the Atlantic Ocean. The Famara Risco, the largest ridge on Lanzarote, prevails in the northern part of the Island from the famous town of Teguise, the oldest of Lanzarote all the way to the north cape next to the Mirador del Rio and the town of Orzola where the Ferries leave for the neighbor Island of la Graciosa. The mountains that surround that area are home to four of the most popular take off sites on Lanzarote, Famara, Las Pequeñas, Mirador del Rio and Arrieta close to Mala. The choice of where we fly from is based on the winds present at the time we fly so we will always confirm the location a couple of hours prior to your Hang Glider flight

First you will need to fill out the usual paper work related to the activity, then a short briefing with the your tandem pilot about the take-off and other aspects of hang gliding. Taking off that is very simple and easy and not terrifying as you might imagine but it's a team work and your participation running will be part of the process. Soon we will be airborne with our hang glider. Flying means gliding smoothly through the air, after seven steps you will feel and understand why birds are peaceful animals. The fear of not touching the ground will disappear and will be overcome by tranquility of floating in the air.During flight you will often see the many attractions Lanzarote such as the Famara Risco, Teguise, La Graciosa and more.

The whole adventure will be photographed and recorded by our GoPro cameras attached to the glider so you can share this great adventure with your friends and relatives back home.
