How do I know where we are going to fly?

Depending on the weather conditions we usually go to different places where we can fly paragliding in Alicante

If you are in Alicante and fly in the mountains or on the cliffs next to the sea you are about 25 min by car.

If you are in Benidorm and you are going to fly in this zone the time is about 45 min

and we going to fly in Benidorm the time from Benidorm flying zone is around 20 min

Normally a day or two before the activity we have a good idea of where we will go, depending on the conditions, so we get in touch and coordinate everything.

What many people do not know is that paragliding activity can vary greatly depending on the company you choose to fly.

In this area all the pilots are very experienced and offer a good price value relationship, however each offer a different experience in paragliding, so in this case it is not always good to look for offers, look for information in the opinions of both TripAdvisor and facebook to know exactly if it is what you are looking for.
After choosing your company and deciding which day you want to fly, wait one of the most exciting activities you can do in your life.....



Two new friends from UK

Tamden Paragliding in AlicantePosted by Juan Carlos Becerra Tue, September 19, 2017 21:53:32


Today we went to fly paragliding in alicante with two nice girls from UK, they were in the center of alicante spending their vacations with other friends in an apartment that they had rented in airbnb, right in the center of Alicante, one of the most beautiful places of the city that pools small cafes and bars where people gather in the evenings at these gatherings at the end of September.

Vicki had written us an email to reserve the activity of the Paragliding in Alicante, they were looking for something to do on the birthday of her friend Caroline

The truth is that the temperature, the light of these days is insurmountable and the thermics are very comfortable, with instability in the environment rise smoothly and at heights of more than 1200 mts

The first to fly your birthday Caroline, determined and with a desire for adventure.

The take off was smooth and although it cost us some height to get the thermal, we just took it up very fast to more than 1200 mts.

What can I say, with more than 20 years of experience in free flight every day impresses me more than being able to fly like birds.

After some nice shots with our go pro, I gave Caroline the handles for her to fly the paraglider, she did it wonderfully and I think she liked it a lot, then started the acrobatic flight, wooow was good. We landed for once on land we laugh and celebrate the magnificent flight that we finished

Then we fly with Vicki, who can say all the above but with the charisma of Vicki, she is so expressive, and the truth that we had super good, as we decided to land in the lower part we had even more height for the acrobatic flight.

Thank you very much, Vicki and Caroline for your company and good vibes, I hope to see you soon in your next visit to Alicante



Flying over the sea

When Viktoriya called explained that she was looking for things to do in alicante and saw our opinions on tripadvisor and wanted to fly Paragliding in Alicante over the sea, we were delighted because Santa Pola is the perfect place on the beaches of the Costa Blanca. We checked the weather conditions, and they were great to fly in Paragliding on the scheduled day.

We were at the take off at the agreed time, we prepared with all the necessary equipment to fly with the highest possible security and we prepared to take off.

The flight conditions were great, the sunny day and incredible visibility to perform this extreme and complete adrenaline activity.


The flight passed perfect, seeing the lighthouse and the island of Tabarca where Viktoria planned to go to do snorkeling the next day.

We enjoyed the flight to the maximum, the photos and videos were spectacular, and in this way she was happy with her adventure activity of the day.

Once more happy to show how beautiful the free flight is and even more in these awesome views of the white coast.





Would you marry me ?

When Samuel called me and explained to me that he wanted to ask Alba if she wants to marry him flying paragliding in Alicante, what I thought was my Ohh my god, I confess that these things make me nervous, not because of the flight itself, but because everything must turn out well but can become a disaster.

We coordinate everything, we would arrive and we would leave his car in the place where we landed, soon to go up in our van to the takeoff.

Alba knew nothing, the marriage was a secret, we only knew Maria my wife Samuel and me.

Once in the take off then explain in detail everything they need to fly in paragliding.

As I was agreed first I flew with Samuel, the flight was spectacular, with the help of a nice thermal quickly climbed more than 1000 meters and was super pleasant,




but for more that I tried, I could only think that everything would work out well and Alba would say yes.

We landed with a gentle south wind, okay Samuel came the time to prepare everything.

Maria arrives to look for us and Samuel is in charge of preparing everything, a banner and balloons for Alba.

Ready we are again in the takeoff now with Alba.



Ready We took off, the thermal and an exceptional flight, the truth that we enjoyed it very much, and more relaxed we started our flight with roller coasters including, we arrived landing perfect, right next to the banner and a Samuel that with ring in hand and knees asks Alba, would you marry me?

Yessssssss

Wooooow, We in Summer Paragliding are very happy to be part of this love story, and we wish them endless happiness .
