Paragliding

Benasque Valley is one of the best flying sites in Spain for its excellent weather and spectacular views over the Pyrenees, especially on Posets and Maladeta massifs, with the highest concentration of peaks over three thousand meters.

Castejon de Sos, is the reference of national paragliding. It has excellent infrastructure, including several schools, many related utilities and a shuttle service to take-off at the summer months. The town has hosted countless national and international competitions, including several World Championship events, demonstrating their preparation and organizational skills.

The Sierra de Ubiergo in the Pyrenees, also has good flying conditions, with a warmer climate that allows the practice during most of the year.
