Fly off and discover the delight of the Abyssinian high plateaus from above. RasRobeenTours gives you the opportunity to combine Ethiopia’s cultural and historical highlights with the ultimate adventure of paragliding.

 

Even though Ethiopia is not yet very well known for Paragliding, flyers have been coming for more than 10 years to explore the country’s spectacular scenery and landscapes providing great-speed flying potential above large clear fields, sleep sloping terrain, canyons and numerous flying sites.

 

We are cooperating with very experienced guides to combine cultural, historical and paragliding destinations. Our tour guides are specialized in accessing sites for paragliding, dealing with local authorities and will ensure that you have a well organized trip.

 

Level required: Our staff has vast knowledge of the country and its flying sites; however none of them are paraglide pilots. Thus travellers that wish to paraglide need to have a brevet of confirmed or equivalent pilot, and master techniques of landing to all types of possible relief. For those wishing for guided tours by professional European pilots, please contact us.

 

Security: Rescue helicopter are available from Addis Ababa and Hawasa

Best time for flying: December until February.
