Peru 2024

Peru 2023 was supposed to be a one off trip, but having just got home I am not the only one itching to get back so we have already picked dates for 2024.

This trip was designed by my good friends Thomas Schwarzer and Alex Schweig and it truly is a paragliding holiday like no other. Not only will this trip offer some incredible flying in some unique locations and the usual opportunity to improve your wing control, technique and style, it will also offer you the opportunity to dive into the culinary and cultural diversity of this incredibly beautiful Latin country. There is so much more to this tour than just the flying.

The trip will start in Lima, where you will have the opportunity to rest from the long haul flight before checking out the first coastal site in Miraflores. Due to the Pacific coastal breeze this location is ideal for ground handling practice and some of the most perfect coastal soaring conditions to be had.

In Lima you will also get the opportunity to experience the noise, chaos and curiosity of a 10 million inhabitant city. There will be the chance to visit the historical centre for a cultural tour, take part in a night walk along the coastline, try out a local famers market to discover Peru's incredible diversity of fruit and veg smoothies and eat at restaurants offering world class cuisine.

Our second stop will take us to Peru’s kitesurf Mecca, Paracas! In the morning Paracas offers perfect flying conditions to soar directly along the coast of a beautiful natural reserve. As the wind does not increase too quickly, this is also an ideal location for those wanting to develop new techniques for top landing. Paracas was such a hit last year we will be based here for 8 nights in 2024

Kite surfing lessons and a trip via speedboat to the Ballestas Islands, a nature reserve area with unique fauna including Humboldt penguins, sea lions, and a crowd of bird species are also optional extras in Paracas.

From Paracas we will venture deep into the desert for a special day tour of Huacachina. Huacachina is full of surprises, it is an oasis nestled in the Peruvian desert and the perfect backdrop for soaring down untouched sand dunes. In Huacachina in addtion to experincing desert paragliding there is the option for dune buggy rides, sandboarding, slacklining (at additional cost) and of course more spectacular Peruvian food.

After Paracas we head back to Lima for more flying, cultural activites and a variety of nightlife / live music options. There is also the opportunity to take a day trip and experience flying at the Pachacamac, Valley of Kings which is 40 minutes south of Lima. Flying here includes a grass landing with barbeque area and pool so you can expect a relaxed afternoon before returning to Lima in the evening.

This really is a special tour, it combines flying, culture and fun and promises to be a magical whirlwind two weeks. If you are interested in joining me, please either book here through the website or email me at
