Paragliding in Tenerife is to know the island from the best perspective

If you want to get to know the island from another perspective, paragliding in Tenerife offers you spectacular and unique views of the jewel of our island: the Teide National Park.

Emociónate Noelia offers you the possibility to enjoy your paragliding flight in Tenerife, organizing even the smallest detail so you don’t have to worry about anything. It is not necessary to take any kind of course, since it is done through the “tandem” mode, so you will be accompanied by an instructor with extensive experience. We will pick you up at only 100 meters from our Hotel GF Noelia and we will take you to the option you choose.

Deporte de riesgo


Paragliding from Izaña, in the Teide National Park, is one of the most spectacular flights in all of Europe, not only because of its scenic beauty, but also because it is the highest flight in the entire continent, at no more than 2,200 meters.

If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy the impressive views of the Teide National Park and the Orotava Valley, landing in the coastal town of Puerto de la Cruz. If the weather is favourable we can even fly through the magical sea of clouds that sometimes bathes the Orotava Valley. This flight has an approximate duration of 40-50 minutes.

Forest Crown

If you want a first contact with a paragliding flight in Tenerife this is your ideal “take off”. At 850 meters high you will take off from the forest crown (Los Realejos).

You will enjoy a flight over pine forests, crossing the valley and landing in the coastal city of Puerto de la Cruz. This flight lasts approximately 40-50 minutes.

What are the requirements for this activity?

The performance of this activity depends almost one hundred percent on the weather conditions, so if the weather does not allow it, the departure can be postponed for other dates or choose other places on the island to enjoy the flight.

In Emociónate Noelia we have several alternatives, such as Taucho, located in the south of the island, is the place par excellence for paragliding fans thanks to the good climate of the area. Here the take off will be at 700 meters.
