This will be our big trip for 2013. We’ll be in Ecuador from the 24 March – 6 April, meeting in Quito and basing ourselves there for a few days before heading to Banos and finally the Pacific coast. We’ll fly 5 different sites as well as taking in many of the remarkable sites that the country has to offer. We’ll have 2 dedicated vehicles for transportation and retrieves which is essential as some big distances are possible out here.
The trip will be fully inclusive so all of your accommodation and meals will be provided as well as transport, site fees – nearly everything is included! Ecuador is an amazingly diverse country and we’ll try to take in as much as possible. We’ll fly from one of the snow capped volcanoes (this is going to involve a significant hike!), you’ll thermal a thousand feet above Quito and take in some silky smooth coastal soaring above the Pacific at Crusita.
While this is primarily a paragliding trip, we will be visiting the Indian markets in Otavalo and Saquisili, exploring Inca ruins at Ingapirca, and if conditions permit we’ll horse ride and fly in the Paramo, a high altitude grassland wilderness; it rolls for miles between pristine mist shrouded lakes and is one of the great wilderness areas on this planet.
This will be a 10 person expedition which will include 2 staff and the cost will be £1950 per person (£1600 for non-flying partners).
2 places have already been booked so, if this appeals, you really need to reserve a place early.
We’ll be returning to Lanzarote next January from the 24 – 31 January. As you can see from the pictures above, it’s an outstanding place to fly at this time of year. We’ve got a stunning villa with private pool. It’s located in typical little village 15 mins from the airport and is very well positioned for all of the flying sites.
We’ve only got 3 bedrooms so if nobody wants to share it’ll be 3 pilots and 2 instructors. We’ll provide you with a breakfast that would put most 5 star hotels to shame and dinner on your first night is included.
See our Lanzarote trip overview page for more information.
The cost is £675 for a private room, £620 for a shared room and £360 for a non-flying partner.
