For thousands of years, man has dream of 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 your feet and perhaps, a few minutes later, turning into the rising warm air of a thermal and eventually climbing, until you are just a speck, 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 in many countries as parapente, over the Sacred Valley fo the Incas. Be amazed at what is achievable in a real aircraft that can be stuffed in a backpack and taken anywhere, anyhow, any time.

Itinerary

Day 1
At 8:00 in the morning we will travel to the area of Chincheros 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 them up to the sky. In the flying zone the pilot will give instructions, talk about weather conditions, and demonstrate how the equipment works. We prepare the parapent and wait for the perfect moment to take off. We run and jump over the ledge of the hill, ones in the air you will have the most amazing view of the valley and the landskapes, Huaypo lagoon. You will be in the air for about 15 minutes to 30 minutes, reaching incredible altitudes, after all this incredible experience we land. You will go 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 4 pm.

 

My name is Jose Luis Infantes Santander. Paragliding tandem flight pilot. I was born in city of Cusco on 29th December 1979; I did my primary education and few schools, finishing my high school and the glorious Colegio Nacional de Ciencias of Cusco, in 1994.  Afterword I did work in several jobs, as waiter in restaurants and even pizza maker. In 1996, I start the course of paragliding at APVL (Asociacion Peruana de Vuelo Libre) being certificated in 1999, I did stay in the same association as flight monitor and later on as instructor,

Paragliding become my passion from the beginning. Now is more than 20 years cruising the Peruvian sky, over the Andes and I am not planning to stop.

I did start working as paragliding tandem pilot with Green Peru Adventures in 2011, since the beginning of the travel company.
