Description:

Paratrike is a new and exciting flying activity in Gran Canaria. What is a paratrike? It is a seated paraglider geared with back engines and a set of wheels. These eliminate the physical requirement (i.e.: running) during take off and landing, thus minimising the impact and risks during these flight phases -  making paratrike one of the safest flying activities around. The motorised gliders allows for more “air time” as the pilot gains better control of this flying machine. So all you need to do is just seat back (literally), relax and enjoy the flight!

The flight time is approximately 45 minutes, but please allow for 4 hours for hotel pick-up, transfer to one of our flight zones (depending on the weather of the day), briefing and gearing up etc. There is no fixed route, but be sure that our enthusiastic and experienced pilot will take you to the best highlights of the south Gran Canaria, depending on the weather of the day. Expect to see mountains, canyons and dune-fringed coastline of southern Gran Canaria!

The paratrike flying experience goes like this:

  • Pick up from your hotel entrance to our private airfield(free transfer from hotels in Playa del Aguila and Puerto de Mogán, and resorts in between)
  • Relax and enjoy light snacks (sweet & salty snacks with tea, coffee and water) as you watch your paratrike being prepared
  • Safety briefing and flight plan
  • Gearing up with safety helmet, headphone and microphone for communication as warm clothes (if required)
  • LET'S FLY! 
  • During the flight, adrenaline junkie can request for some tricks. Weather permitting, let's see if we can fly high to touch the clouds, fly flow till almost touching the water, or glide next to the gorge walls while spotting different sea creatures.
  • Landing time (awww)
  • A little secret "initiation" ceremony
  • Drop off to your hotel 

We take photos and HD video of your paratrike experience (included in the price), so you can share your flying experience with your friends and family. The photos and video (with special effects and music) will be emailed to you within 10 days.

Our friendly and experienced guides speak English, German, Italian and Spanish.
