Paragliding in Sierra Nevada, Southern Spain
The mild temperatures and the geography of the region of Granada make it an ideal place for those who love flying, hang-gliding and paragliding. You can take off from the impressive peaks of the Sierra Nevada and land in one of the many flight areas of the Costa Tropical: on the Cerro Gordo-Cañuelo hill, La Herradura, Otívar, Peña Escrita, Loma del Gato or the Sierra de Lújar. You can also land in La Sierra de Loja, in the Poniente Granadino area or on the Pico Jabalcón in Altiplano. Even in our own village of Nigüelas there is a take-off just at the border of the Sierra Nevada nacional parc. From our Hotel it takes you 45 minutes breathtaking drive on a dirtroad ( 4x4 recommended ). The views during the drive as the flight itself are stunning, on a clear day you can even see the shores of Africa. The owner of Alqueria de los lentos is an experienced paraglider and he can take you up in his tandem-paraglider. Just ask for information in reception. Niguelas has it's own paragliding club "lentofly"
