Valados - paragliding spot


Access is by private roadside property.

Due to its orographic characteristics, this place is often a good alternative when it is not possible to fly in Pico da Barrosa (due to excessive wind intensity). Good cross possibilities.

Do not fly without the knowledge of local pilots and without permission of the competent authorities.
