Doubts and Frequent Questions about Paragliding in Cusco

Do I need to have any technical skills or training to Paraglide Cusco?

No, all paragliding tours in Cusco and the Sacred Valley are flights that should be operated by trained instructors. The experts will give you the steps before the flight of how to take off and land in a safe way, but once you airborne the pilot will be in full control.


Can we fly without wind?

No, the paraglider can not fly without enough wind for it to rise.


If we are flying and the wind is going away?

Nothing happens because the Paraglider is a device designed to fly, for that reason if the wind goes away, the Paraglider descends gently and the pilot directs it to land in one of the alternate landing areas, which are very wide and safe.


Can I take my camera during the flight?

No, since during the flight you can not have anything in your hands. But nevertheless, we can videotape your entire flight.



If during the flight I wish to land before time, what can we do?

Yes, of course, if for some reason you want to land then we will do it immediately. Our intention is that you have a pleasant experience.
