Tenerife is one of the best places in the world to practice paragliding due to the great views and stable air currents. 

The weather conditions in Tenerife are very stable throughout the year, so it is possible to practice paragliding in Tenerife during the whole year.

However, according to the experience of the pilots, the ideal conditions for paragliding occur between October and May.

One of the most important things to bear in mind when you are going to practice paragliding is the best time to fly your paraglider. Of course, it is going to depend on factors like the place where you are practicing this sport, the time of the year and the time of the day.

If you plan to come with your paraglider and spend an excellent vacation flying on the island of Tenerife, you have to consider some things. Being an island bathed by the trade winds, the weather behaves differently from other places where you may be used to visiting to make your paragliding flights.

So now we are going to talk about what is the best time to fly your glider in Tenerife.

Weather conditions in Tenerife allow people to practice paragliding practically during the whole year, although expert pilots consider that the best time to fly is during the months from October to May — so we could say that the seasons of autumn, winter and spring are the best time of the year to fly your paraglider in Tenerife.

Some of the landing areas, especially those that involve beaches, are only available during the winter months. So, if you want to assure your descend from the highs to the coast, you must make your paragliding flight during the winter season. Nevertheless, there are some other landing areas which can be used, but you must be careful with the people at the beach!

Furthermore, you should always bear in mind that weather may change from one day to another, so we strongly recommend you to watch out the weather conditions for each day — both for the landing area and for the take-off area. The ones who can give you the best advice in terms of weather conditions are the experts of the Canary Federation of Aerial Sports (FECDA). You can visit their web page and contact them through the email fecda@fecda.org or by a phone call.

Generally, any time of the day is a good time to fly. Nevertheless, we recommend starting in the morning.

The best time of the day to fly during autumn and winter would be between 10:30 am. and 17:00 pm. Due to at these hours you will find the best weather conditions and the best winds for flying at Tenerife. Later its more calm, so there are fewer possibilities to get higher.

However, during the spring and summer seasons, the best time of the day to fly is typically from 9 am. to 7 pm., sometimes even later!

We hope that this information about the best time to fly your paraglider in Tenerife has been useful.

Now that we know what is tandem paragliding, the question is where do we practice it.

We fly mainly from the paragliding sites of Ifonche and Taucho, because we consider them the best places to paraglide in Tenerife. But, depending on the weather conditions of the day, we also fly from other sites like the slope of Guimar and Arafo among others.

Did you know you that you can also fly over the Teide’s National Park? One of our tandem paragliding flights allows you to watch this amazing volcano from the heights.

All our expert instructors in Overfly Tenerife will make sure that you get the most astonishing views of the island. You won’t understand how great it is is until you see it!

It is not compulsory to have a particular physical condition. If you weigh between 30 and 100 kilos and you can run a few steps, then you just have to fill out the booking form.

How old do you have to be to paraglide? Paragliding is for everyone starting from the 6 years all, but if you are between 6 and 18 year olds, you require a written parental consent require. Once you are 18, you can feel free to fly with us whenever you want!

This bad weather conditions include mostly strong winds or rain. Strong wind can make you lose control of the paraglider and difficult the take-off and landing. If you are not careful, it can turn out to be very dangerous for you.

Which ones are the best conditions for flying a paraglider? When is it not possible? There are some things you should take into consideration before your flight, like the wind, the rain or how bright the day is.

The Wind Is Key!

First, you should know that the wind velocity is quite important, the most important weather condition for paragliding in fact. If there is no wind enough, it will not be possible to fly with your paraglider. For the wind to be appropriate for flying, it should be less than 18mph or 28 km/h.

Also, the speed is not the only thing you should considerate when checking the wind before flying. We also recommend you that you check the airflow and the direction of the wind to see if it helps you or not.
