Thanks to Nick and his team, I had the experience of a lifetime. I had never paraglided before, so I did a tandem flight. I could tell that Nick has a lot of experience and that safety was his number one priority. The views from the flight were spectacular, and I had the biggest adrenaline rush I've had in years. I would highly recommend it!

Having learned to paraglide in Germany, I was looking for the opportunity to fly with - and under the instruction of - Brits. I'm so happy to have found Paragliding Guide. Nick, Alan, James and the whole team gave great advice, and tips, in just 3 flying days, I feel I learned more than I had in the past year. Great experience overall, with great people. Fantastic location, with many great flying sites within easy reach. The team's local knowledge and attention to safety is second to none. Furthermore, everything well organised, at the same time relaxed. I'm looking forward to going back as soon as I can...

I had an amazing experience with Nick and Alan. Before going I was feeling very nervous but as soon as I met them my nerves disappeared. By the end of the week I had done my longest flight ever and feeling way more confident in the air. I'm so grateful for my time there!! I hope I can go back one day :)

By chance, we met Nick at the takeoff site in Montellano. He quickly noticed our slight skepticism about the conditions that day and, unlike the typical experiences women may encounter in paragliding, he tactfully explained the takeoff site, flying area, landing approach, and weather peculiarities with great empathy, making us feel confident to take off. From that day on, we happily spent the rest of our time with him, immensely grateful for the incredible experiences we could have in Algodonales, despite not even getting to fly at the „main“ mountain. We will definitely come back and will surely visit Nick and his fantastic team again! Highly recommended for paragliders who seek more than just reckless flying in all conditions, Nick and his team provide a safe and enriching experience that goes beyond expectations.

Can't recommend Nick enough for your next (or first) trip away. I joined him for a week to escape the UK winter and even though our of season in Algodonales I learned more than I'd have imagined. Very personal experience with a massive focus on my skill level and experience, even though at the time mine was not much. Loads of fantastic theoretical discussions and great support for those tentative launches. Nick is amazing at molding around the learning styles of his pilots and makes it all extra fun with a solid sense of humor. Go and book, you'll have a blast ????

After flying with Paragliding Guide in Algodonales I can safely say that my skillset has improved massively. For those looking to up-skill or just get more airtime in a beautiful neck of the world… go for it. You won’t regret it. Experience tells me that the weather conditions in Algodonales, combined with the expert support of Paragliding Guide’s instructors and coaches will take your flying abilities to the next level, improving your knowledge and confidence along the way.

Nick macht seinen Job aus Leidenschaft. Für ihn steht stets der Mensch im Mittelpunkt. Ich war im letzten Jahr kurz nach meiner A-Lizenz bei ihm und kam in diesem Jahr wieder. Ob Anfänger oder langjähriger Flieger. Hier kommt jeder auf seine Kosten und Nick kann jedem in seiner Entwicklung weiterhelfen. Zusammen mit seinem Team die perfekte Kombination aus Wissen, Empathie und Herausforderung. Ich habe viel über Wetter, positive Einstellung und übers Fliegen gelernt. Anders als andere Guides in Algodonales viel familiärer und individueller. Ich komme wieder :-)

Hatte 2 Wochen bei Nick und ich war sehr zufrieden. Ich bin urlaubsflieger und ich konnte zusammen mit Nick meine Flüge sehr verbessern. Die Gruppengröße ist überschaubar und ich musste daher nie lang warten bis mir geholfen wurde. Einfach ein super Guide. Vorsicht Wiederholungsgefahr ????
