about hang gliding

Hang Gliding is done from Pedra Bonita mountain ramp, located at Tijuca Forest National Park, at a height of 1700 feet (520 meters) and lands on São Conrado "Pepino" Beach. Hang gliding is one of the wind sports. It is a recreational sport that uses a craft often consisting of a metal-framed fabric wing, with the pilot mounted on a harness hanging from the wing frame. Hang Gliding Flights take place in Pedra Bonita, a beautiful mountain located in São Conrado area, just 20 minutes from Copacabana in Rio De Janerio.

Views from Pedra Bonita are breathtaking and mesmerizing and putting yourself in the air will make your experience even more exciting. The place is fitted with a suitable wooden runway, big enough to provide a fine track for your take-offs. From Pedra Bonita the main landing area is Sao Conrado beach (following by Ipanema). 

As for the Hang Gliding Tandem Flights, no previous experience is required since the instructor takes control of the whole flight while you'll be experiencing one of the world´s most scenic glides.
