Experience The Excitement Of Hang Gliding in Rio De Janeiro

There is no place in the world quite like Rio de Janeiro in the South American country of Brazil and there is no experience quite as exciting as hang gliding. And when you combine the two it is an experience that simply cannot be matched.

Hang gliding is an activity that is not for the faint of heart. It involves strapping oneself to a large metal-frame contraption with nylon wings and jumping off an elevated surface in order to fly through the air like a bird. The glider soars high above treetops at relatively high speeds, all the while relying on a few seatbelt-like straps to keep you from falling to the ground.

Indeed hang gliding is not for everyone. But for adrenaline junkies and people who love to live a little bit dangerously, it is one of the most thrilling experiences that there is. And while the thrill can be experience anywhere there is a cliff and enough room to get a good running start, one of the most popular places to hang glide is in Rio de Janeiro.

If you have always wanted try hang gliding or if you have done it before and are looking for a great location to hone your skills, the São Conrado neighborhood of Rio is arguably the world's best place to go. Located around the Tajuca National Park, São Conrado is a beautiful juxtaposition of mountains and vast ocean that professional and amateur hang gliders absolutely rave about.

The scenery is spectacular and there are several companies that offer hang gliding tours led by professional, experienced hang gliders. These tours typically begin with a brief overview of the sport of hang gliding followed by in depth instruction on technique.

After you have been given all the information you need, it is time to take off and fly like a bird through the air over the beautiful Rio de Janeiro landscape. The majestic views are unbeatable and most companies offer free beverages and other refreshments upon landing.

If you have never experienced hang gliding before - or even if you have but have never done it in Brazil - then consider taking a trip to the amazing city of Rio de Janeiro for the hang gliding vacation of a lifetime.
