Discover the flying sites for your paragliding trip to Spain, in the heart of Andalusia.
Flying a paraglider in Algodonales, province of Cádiz in Andalusia, in the southwest of Spain, is enjoying exceptional sunshine, restaurants and bars in the village and the wild beauty of the region.
The main site, the Sierra de Lijar, is unique in Europe because it is possible to fly thermals all year round.
With the proximity of the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and the many Sierras de Cadíz, Seville, Granada and Malaga, the weather conditions vary over short distances. For a well-informed pilot, it is therefore almost always possible to fly in exceptional conditions. Local and updated information from your URUBU paragliding guide will be very useful.
