What is the best time to fly your paraglider in Tenerife?

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.

When is the best time of the year to fly your paragliding 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 or by a phone call.
