This group was awesome and I am very happy to have had them take me paragliding for the first time. It was a whole bunch of laughs and good times but when it came to flying I thought they exuded a lot of confidence and professionalism that made me feel comfortable. Not to mention, Chicamocha is a stunning place to... More

I didn't know what to really expect today but this was so much fun. Not too much of a long day either as we got picked up at 9 and was back by 2. The fly time itself was only 30mins but it was so beautiful. The guys are super friendly, make you feel very safe and also pull a... More

The parapente it self was nice. But It took a whole day for just 25 min of air time. I'm never in a hurry while travelling but the waiting became kinda tedious. With better information we've would have brought something to eat. Leaving at 0930 and back at 16.30.

Sergio was an amazing guide. The parasailing over ChicaMocha is incredible. The thermals are very strong. We jumped off from 2.7k feet above the canyon floor and ascending 4k up from the jump site. The views are breathtaking!!! If you're asked whether you want to spin, be prepared to pull 2Gs on the end of the sail!!!

This is something everyone should do at least once in their lives! Paragliding is something amazing, but experiencing it in Cañon del Chicamocha is something I will never forget! I was feeling nervous at the beginning, but always completely safe because of the equipment and the guides. Every pilot was really friendly and eager to make you enjoy the experience.

Went today up in the air above parque chicamocha. I had a very good and nice pilot. The flight was very smooth except some acrobat rounds wich were thrilling. I dont think there are many places more beautifull than this Canyon to fly above. Of you are around here go for it you won t regrett.

It was the best travel experience I've had! It was actually the first time that I did paragliding so I was a little scared but Sergio and his team were really nice and professional. They made the flight a truly unique experience. The view over the canyon is incredible and definitely a must-do in Colombia !! Very Highly recommended !!

Being from Tampa, Florida, I had no idea that paragliding meant anything more than being 30ft. off the ground and pulled by a motorboat. Sergio and his staff at Parapente Chicamocha completely redefined paragliding and flight for me! My friend and I signed up on recommendation from a hostel where we were staying. The whole activity took about a half... More

The experience becomes much better when you do it in Chicamocha mountains, is a place that you can not describe the sensation and the spectacular view. I did it around 4 years ago, simply amazing...
