Fly a Paraglider in Rio de Janeiro! Paragliding instruction and tandem flights from the Pedra Bonita take off in Sao Conrado beach, Rio de Janeiro. Soar like a bird over the Tijuca National Forest, see the city's most stunning landmarks from up above, and land on Sao Conrado beach. Come and see Rio from a different angle!
