PARAGLIDING IN ARGENTINA

Paragliding in Mendoza Paragliding in Jujuy

Paragliding and hang-gliding are performed taking off from a mountain, making use of the wind currents blowing upwards along its slopes to glide and ascend, and thus achieving long-term flights.
A relatively short space is needed for landing, thanks to the low or medium speeds reached by these devices.

Hang-gliding in San Javier (San Miguel de Tucumán)
This fascinating and astonishing experience, for those encouraged enough to undertake it, is realized from the summit of the Cerro San Javier Mountain, 25 kilometres away from Tucumán's capital city.

Paragliding over the slopes of the Chapelco Mountain (San Martín de los Andes)
Flying like a bird over a valley with a paraglide is an experience long to be cherished in your memories. You can make this beautiful experience come true in San Martín de los Andes by invitation…

Paragliding / Hang-gliding
Descending from hills and cliffs with a paraglide or hang-glide is a thrill hard to describe. There are many mountains and hills, as well as cliffs rising over the ocean beaches, where to practice these sports.

Following are a number of spots appropriate for their practice:

Northeast
Mountains in Salta, Jujuy, Tucumán, Catamarca, La Rioja and other provinces.

Cuyo
Cerro Arco Mountain (Mendoza)

Centre Sierras
Cerro Carpintería Mountain (in San Luis, accessible from Merlo), Cuchi Corral (accessible from La Cumbre), and other zones on the west side of the mountain range.

Andean Patagonia
Cerro Otto or Cerro Catedral mountains (in Bariloche) and Cerro Piltriquitrón Mountain (in El Bolsón).

Atlantic Patagonia
Cliffs and beaches (in Las Grutas)

PARAGLIDING IN MENDOZA


Mendoza Adventure Travel & Tours ...

Hang-gliding and Paragliding are practiced in the Capital's near-by cliffs. The Arco Mountain is a good example of this. For the inexperienced travellers, these flights can be done with a skilled instructor.


PARAGLIDING IN JUJUY


Jujuy Adventure Travel & Tours ...

In Jujuy, the best alternative for this kind of activity you will find at El Jaire, at 2,200 m.a.s.l. Go from San Salvador de Jujuy, following the Ruta Nacional Nº 9, until you reach the village of Lozano. Then you take off for 4 kilometres towards the east and Tiraxi. The entrance to the take off area is found one kilometre from the kiln of the lime stone quarry of El Jaire. Those travellers interested in theses activities should contact local practitioners.

The take off is facing southeast. It is easy. But you have to be careful not to get stuck within the canyon of El Jaire, which is a possibility if you get stuck on some walnut tree. The landing places are located between 600 and 700 metres further down, depending on which place you choose.

You can either land on a soccer field in the village of León (1,600 m.a.s.l.) or a smaller field at the bottom of the hill at 1,500 m.a.s.l. The Río Jaire and the Río Grande rivers are also alternative landing places, less elegant, but valid.

The best season for the practise of this sport is the southern hemisphere spring, and the start and end of the summer. Then you will have the opportunity for thermal flying and some crosses. It is a rather exiguous place to hang glide but no big problem if you have previous experience in mountain gliding.

During January and February the rainy season shuts down the possibilities to practise this sport in the area.
