Accompanied by a fully certified instructor, launch from the Tijuca Forest National Park, and glide over the lush, verdant Mata Atlantica (Atlantic Forest). Take in views of some of Rio's most famous landmarks, such as Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Rocinha Favela, and the Christ the Redeemer Statue atop Corcovado Mountain. Touch down for a gentle landing on the white sands of Sao Conrado Beach. Round-trip transportation is available for additional cost, but a video DVD of your hang-gliding experience is included.

Great experience. Thrilling and beautiful flight - you won't be disappointed. While the flight itself is short (about 6 mins), you'll need to block out 2-3 hours for registration, basic training, transportation up the hill, and potential weather delays. Note that the fee only includes the front camera. The side and rear cameras are an extra R$100 (Brazillian Real).

Not only the best thing we did in Brazil, but probably the best thing we have ever done period. Klaus was a total pro and made us feel at ease. His skill apparent as soon as we left the platform. The wind was better than average (per Klaus) and allowed almost ten minutes of glide time. If you are in Rio, you need to put this at the top of your to do list.
