Flying like a bird above, beyond and through some of our world’s most incredible wonders is one of the most unforgettable activities you could ever hope to experience. Don’t believe us? Then head to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and catch a totally unique view of the Christ the Redeemer Statue as you propel yourself off Corcovado Mountain on a hang-glide and make a smooth landing on infamous Ipanema Beach.
Nepal’s Pokhara region is a magnet for hang and para-gliders the world over and offers the unrivalled chance to fly through the world’s highest mountain ranges. Although this is a relatively new sport to be introduced to the Himalayan region it is certainly one of the most exciting of all. Failing that, head to the Swiss Alps, some of the most incredible hang gliding can be found in the heart of Switzerland, with a view of Europe’s famous mountain, the Matterhorn.
