Paragliding has a long tradition in the Sierra Nevada in Andalusia. This applies to aviation at all. Large parts of the mountains belong to a biosphere reserve. The compact area has several peaks over 3000 metres high, some of which are covered with snow almost all year round. At the same time, Andalusia is one of the regions of Spain with the most hours of sunshine. Here you will find good conditions for all Ourdorra activities. Paragliding is possible in the Sierra Nevada almost all year round.
