If there is little wind, you won’t even have to run. You don’t need any training or any physical condition to paraglide! Takeoffs are on grassy slopes without too much inclination.

What people are saying about Community of Madrid

It was absolutely wonderful. Great customer service from the EOLO team. From Virginia, who contacted us to give us details and Emanuel who picked us up and pretty much was our guide and Jose, our astute pilot, It was just perfect. It was a complete experience where, Jose even explained to us the history of the Hot Air Balloon, and it led to the moment where we all had Cava and brunch of sorts. Loved it

I was just a beautiful experience in the air. It was on our Bucket-list - communication was excellent and even though we booked it in Toledo and due to weather we had to switch to Segovia and what a beautiful city in Spain. The team was absolutely nice. The only recommendation to make it even a greater experience is the setting of the Brunch but other that that I’m ready for my net ride.

From the moment Eduardo collected me from the accommodation the experience was enjoyable. The flight was amazing, the pilot informative and entertaining, and the views were breathtaking. To top this off, the champagne breakfast afterwards was a delight and the small touches such as video and photos provided were the icing on the cake. Thoroughly recommend.

oh what a great experience! The eagle eye view of Segovia and the Alcazar in the morning with sun at the horizon. it's a spectacle to behold. The guides were fun and got us all involved in packing of hot air balloon by the end of the trip making it more immersive experience!

This was awesome. We didn’t do the walking tour part but the balloon ride was very fun. Next time I am bringing a warm hat, gloves, and a sweater, cause it was very cold! I went the last week in September.
