Famara CliffsLanzarote

January / February

A midwinter break for all levels of hang glider pilot. Superb volcanic scenery and the awesome Famara cliffs. We stay in villa accommodation near Puerto Del Carman. Hire cars provide access to the flying sites. Often too breezy for paragliders Lanzarote is perfect for hang gliding with magnificent coastal soaring and inland thermic flights with interesting convergence over the island.

Cost: 725 includes fly guiding, transport and accommodation. Flights approx. 140.
