Mendoza in paragliding

The mountains and winds are ideal for getting to know the city in paragliding. A panoramic view with lots of adrenaline. Are you cheering up?


We have already talked about  Cerro A  r  co mendocino. This massif that is accessed on foot, with a lot of physical demand, and from which you get a spectacular view of the city and its surroundings. However, it also serves as a  base for paragliding and flying through our sky . It is an unforgettable experience that you have to take advantage of, because  our geography, winds and landscapes make Mendoza a unique place for this activity. 

To find out in detail this adventure, we consult the people of  Zona de Vuelo . Its owner and manager, Horacio Quiroga, summed up the experience: “Paragliding flight is a beautiful walk from the sky. Our company has  17 years of experience carrying tourists  and complies with all security measures. We are authorized by the Argentine Free Flight Federation, with license number 277. In addition, we are recognized by Ente Mendoza Turismo”.

With the confidence that these rules generate us, the journey of flying through the skies in paragliding begins with the  transfer in 4x4 . We are accompanied by a  two-seater paraglider  with emergency parachute and instructor for each person, if you decide to fly as a couple, so they fly simultaneously.

The company's facilities have bathrooms, parking and supply at the base, from where the journey starts by van, in case our companions want to wait for us.

Shifts start at  8 in the morning, while the last one is at 17.30.  The tour, in total, lasts  3 hours  , but the  estimated flight time is 20 minutes  . One last fact to keep in mind is that it is not necessary to focus on carrying our cell phone and taking pictures or filming as this is the same instructor.

 Sport of risk 

Paragliding is considered a risk sport. However, the instructors are highly experienced people, with 23 years of experience and with 17 years flying alongside tourists, without registered accidents.  “ The secret is to fully respect the weather conditions,”  says Horacio, referring to the fact that many times you can climb to the top of the hill and be ready to take off, but wind and weather conditions can be unfavorable.  In that case, it is descended and attempted the next day.
