Hang gliding and paragliding from the Pedra Bonita peak, overlooking São Conrado, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is a spectacular thrill, and a great way to see Rio from a different angle. After 15 minutes of breathtaking soaring over the treetops, you land on the soft sands of Praia Pepino. There are several highly professional operators offering tandem flights, including Just Fly, run by Paulo Celani, a professional pilot with 23 years’ experience.
