Flying in Lleida is possible
Discovering Lleida from the air is an experience that will not leave you indifferent. Either paragliding, hang gliding or hot air balloon, any option is good to experience these lands from another point of view.
Paragliding and Hang gliding
Exploring Montsec from the sky is quite an adventure. Suspended, with a paraglider or hang glider, you will enter the world of free flight and discover the beauty of a landscape dotted with fields and cliffs. Taking off from the Montsec mountain range. You have at your feet a valley with an incredible nature.
If you want to experience the feeling of flying just for one day, our recommendation is paragliding. A two-seater flight is an unforgettable experience in which you will be accompanied by a professional who will ensure that the activity takes place in complete safety. The flight, between 20 minutes and an hour, will make you feel like a bird. If the practice hooks you, in Lleida there are also schools where you can become a professional paraglider.
Another area to experience paragliding is the Orgañá area, which has a special climate, being protected from strong winds that allows you to fly most days, and make cross country flights.
For the more adventurous and expert, the best option is hang gliding . Due to the characteristics of the Montsec, the chances of enjoying a dynamic flight are fantastic, especially at midday when the thermal conditions are excellent. In this area of the Pre-Pyrenees of Lleida they have been hang gliding for more than 20 years, in which they have organized important national and international championships, among which the Hang Gliding World Championship that was held in 1995 stands out. .
Hot air balloon
Something more relaxed but just as spectacular is the hot air balloon , an activity suitable for all audiences. Getting into the basket and letting yourself be carried away by the wind is an experience that you can do with friends or family. Children from the age of 5 can ride in the balloons. Most rides include a toast or lunch, and upon completion you will get a travel certificate!
One of the most spectacular exits is made in the Cerdanya Pyrenees, where you will enjoy the Pyrenees of France and Catalonia, you will walk over the Sierra del Cadí , you will fly over the Masella and La Molina ski slopes, a part of the French lands, and the Canigó .
You can also fly over the Pyrenees with Camins de Vent , a company that organizes flights where you can feel contact with nature, silence and calm. A very good gift option.
