Couldn't fault this activity. We first went to the north of the island but, when the wind didn't pick up, we were taken to the west of Funchal to try a different site. The wind there was just right. We were kitted out with helmet, gloves and knee pads, given straight- forward instructions, attached to our pilots and took off. The pilots were great and found thermals so we quickly gained altitude to well above the take-off site. The flight lasted for over twenty minutes (much longer than one I did in New Zealand) and was absolutely brilliant. Whether you've done tandem paragliding before or want to try it, you won't do better than go with these guys. Have no fear, it's the closest you'll get to soaring like a bird.

My first flight; definitely not my last! A perfect highlight of an awesome vacation on Madeira! Remi is a great pilot who waits a long time to make the flight possible for his guest. The flight itself was amazing. Once you're up everything is just happiness. It's also nice to stay for a while and watch all the pilots and how they work together, even if they are from different companies.
Remi sent great pictures the same evening and the movies (uncut und cut) the next day. I recommend both since the cutted version is a nice quickly reminder.
First tipp: Book early on your time on Madeira since the weather isn't guaranteed and you might need a few tries. Second tipp: Rent a car. To get to the starting place by bus is almost impossible and a taxi is very expensive. Third tipp: During the flight move the camera around so you can capture more of the landscape.

2020 I decided was my year on saying YES to as many experiences in life that I could.
Remi was the first and BOY WAS IT WORTH IT!!! He made me feel very relaxed and I never once was scared. I have a thing with heights yet I was perfectly fine. It should be done at least once in your life but I'll definitely be doing it again thanx to Remi making it so easy and he's so caring too.
Highly recommended 👍👍

Despite the non-ideal wind speed meaning it took hours before we could take off, Remi and his pal Sergio refused to let my friend and I leave without experiencing flying! Instead, they took us to multiple take-off points, until we eventually found a good spot and once we were in the air, my god it was great. Especially with such an experienced pilot who made me feel completely safe at all times.

Even before we were in the air, Remi and Sergio were friendly, funny, and generous (even taking us for a quick drink). They are clearly passionate about paragliding and want others to get the chance to experience it for themselves. Thanks to Remi, I've since signed up for lessons to get my own wings. Thanks, Remi :)

We had an amazing experience with Remi and Sérgio Gouveia yesterday! Altough the weather wasn’t the best (the day before Remi said it was 50/50 chance it could happen) we went out to see if it was possible or not. After talking to other paragliders and checking several weather forecasts it was a go :) Safety first, that’s fore sure 👍

After lift off it was an incredible feeling to fly.
Even tough the circumstances weren’t ideal, Sérgio managed to keep me 17 mins in the air (myself with 85 kg not the lightest person ;) )

During the flight Sérgio explained lots of things and he asked several times if i was comfortable.

My girlfriend was a bit hesitant and scared at first, but after a few seconds in the air that feeling completely disappeared! She was very happy an excited she did it and i’m very proud as well ;)

Many thanks to Remi and Sérgio. I would definitely recommend flying with these 2 and I will do it again if i visit Madeira in the future!

All the best, Remi and Sérgio!

Remi gives you wings and an exhilarating feeling of weightlessness as time stands still...
With the help of the professional and passionate paraglider, I felt completely safe, floating over the beautiful and versatile Portuguese island. It was the perfect start to my adventurous vacation.
So I highly recommend "I Can Fly in Madeira" to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience!

My adorable wife decided to surprise me for my birthday by orgnanizing my first paragliding flight. Remy is a great instructor and makes it easy, even for a neophyte like me on his first flight with all the questions this might entail. He has such a strong command of the entire process, equipment, weather, winds, etc. and visibly enjoys sharing it that I was instantly made comfortable. After take-off, wow, what a glide it was.Fantastic views, wonderful gliding in the skies with expert explanations and comments. I warmly recommend Remy and would follow him off a cliff again :-)

I loved the flight over Funchal, with a combination of the different landscapes - we flew over the mountains, the city and the ocean. It was my first experience with paragliding so I was a little nervous but the pilots explained everything really well and made sure we were relaxed. It was an amazing experience that I look forward to do again!!

It was our first time paragliding and Remi and his team were very friendly and professional. They made us feel safe and relaxed before and during the flight. Porto da Cruz was an wonderful location to fly from as we got a beautiful view of the mountains, valleys, towns and the ocean. Price was very reasonable for this fantastic experience. We totally recommend this experience to everyone who plan to visit Madeira as you will get a chance to admire Madeira from a whole new level.

An amazing experience provided by Remi. He was super flexible with us even if in the last minute we had to reschedule our flight and Remi was available to come another day on purpose. The experience couldn't be better, I was afraid to try but Remi transmits you confidence. The video edition was also very nice.
See you soon, thank you
