For thousands of years, man has dreamt about flying…. Have you read that sort of thing a few times before?
Well, these days many people are coming very close to that often-expressed yearning by leaning into the wind, taking a few steps and then gently parting company with the land of the Incas under their feet… and perhaps a few minutes later turning into the rising warm air of a thermal and eventually rise, until you are just a peck, high up and far away in the domains of the Condor. Just pausing here to let you indulge in that incredible daydream for a few more moments…..
Welcome to the exhilarating sport of paragliding (known as parapente in many countries) over the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Be amazed of the idea that what you can experiment in a real aircraft can just be equally induces by a stuffed backpack that you can take anywhere, anyhow, at any time.

Itinerary

Day 1

At 08:00 am in the morning we will start our adventurous trip and travel to the area of Chinchero in the upper hills of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will get there early to catch the rising thermals wafting up the valley walls. This is the same thermals the condors use to lift themselves up to the sky! In the flying zone, the pilot will give you instructions, talk to you about the actual weather conditions and demonstrate you how the equipment works. We prepare the parapent and wait for the perfect moment to take off. We run and jump over the edge of the hill – once in the air, you will have the most amazing view of the valley and the landscapes, for example the beautiful Huaypo lagoon. You will be in the air for about 15 to 30 minutes, reaching incredible altitudes. After this incredible experience we land and get back to Cusco in the afternoon.
Please note that the activity depends on the weather, so you might need a full day as the last chance to fly is around 04:00 pm.

 

My name is Jose Luis Infantes Santander, Paragliding Tandem Flight Pilot. I was born in the city of Cusco on 29th December 1979; I did my primary education and a few schools, finishing my high school and the glorious Colegio Nacional de Ciencias of Cusco in 1994.  Afterwards, I worked in several jobs, for example as a waiter in restaurants and even as a pizza maker. In 1996, I started doing a course of paragliding at APVL (Asociacion Peruana de Vuelo Libre), being certificated in 1999. I stayed in the same association as a flight monitor and later on as an instructor!

Paragliding became my passion right from the beginning. Now I am cruising over the Peruvian sky and over the Andes for more than 20 years – and I am not planning to stop!!

I started working as a paragliding tandem pilot for Green Peru Adventures in 2011, since the beginning of the travel company. We always have a wonderful time and became great friends in these long years of working and flying together! I am very proud to be part of the company that supports and trusts me, where I found family and friends.

I personally invite you to fly with me and enjoy your adventure with Green Peru Adventures!
