The north of Tenerife is completely green due to the humidity, while the landscape in the south is completely arid. The weather in Tenerife is the result of a combination of cold ocean currents, warmth from the nearby Tropic of Cancer, the trade winds and the Island’s orography. Although the Canary Islands are located close to the African continent, meaning Tenerife’s climate should be hot and dry, the truth is that the Island reveals a curious contrast between the north and south. The side of the Island that is exposed to the trade winds has a more humid atmosphere, with more abundant rainfall inland and on the peaks. This is the reason why we recommend practicing paragliding in the south of the island. The wind is more stable and there are not many precipitations, then we will have more possibilities to fly. Nevertheless, let’s see some of the best paragliding sites in the north of the island. zaña’s take-off point is located in the Teide National Park. This is a very special paragliding site in terms of views, because you will take off facing the Mount Teide. Moreover, it is a unique flight due to the difference in altitude at the start and finish. It is one of the biggest in the whole Europe. It starts from Izaña at 2,200 metres above sea level, and it is just 2 kilometres away from Teide Observatory. It is noteworthy that paragliding is the only sport activity authorized throughout the National Park. It is extremely important to get an updated weather report before taking the paragliding flight. The degree of difficulty is intermediate throughout the day depending on the weather, although it can switch to expert level in a couple of hours. The landings points associated to Izaña are Faro Puerto and an open esplanade by El Peñón football pitch, both located in Puerto de la Cruz, in the northbound. - Take off : This is one of the only two legally permitted TO-sites in the 'Teide'-National Park! This site is normally flown (very) early in the morning; later the cloud cover can clodr completely and/ or the east wind will not permit TO anymore. More information on ParaglidingEarth Landing is in the parking lot in Puerto de la Cruz. There is a bail-out LZ just after crossing the highway/ round-about (N28.39794 W16.54144/ 100m) Weather hazards : If the wind is coming from the EAST (landside) in Puerto de la Cruz, do NOT set up your approach over the water, ALWAYS remain over land! (you'd not be the first pilot to drown in the sea, because he could not reach land anymore...) Going there: 1) launch direction Güimar: From Puerto de la Cruz direction Teide/observatory. Pass by road to observatory (military sector). 2 km after that you see a longer straight road section with view to Gran Canary. 2) launch direction Puerto de la Cruz: Drive on a bit more until you can see the Orotava Valley. takeoff 1) is E-SE oriented. You launch on a road, best time after sunrise - soon the clouds arive and make it impossible. 45 min glide. Attention, it is advisable to take binoculars and check waves on the sea - sometimes beach wind is strong N/E, then you should either not launch or choose a landing inlands. takeoff 2) is a natural slope, W-NW oriented landing zone for 1): Puerto de Güimar. In Puerto de Güimar direction Puerto de deportivo (sport boat harbour), parking directly at the sea. If there is strong wind at the sea you should land inlands. South of Güimar there is an open cave, that is an alternative. landing zone for 2) on the parking lot between sea and station, next to Playa Paraiso - or in front of the light tower at the parking lot. Eigentlich möchte man ja vom höchsten Berg Spaniens(!), dem Teide, fliegen, der zudem noch von einer Seilbahn erschlossen ist... doch dies ist leider, da im Nationalpark gelegen, absolut illegal und bringt Mega-Aerger mit sich. Als Alternative bieten sich da die 2 offiziell zugelassenen Startplätze (in der Nähe des Astronom. Observatoriums) von "Izana" an. Früh aufstehen ist angesagt; va für den Flug nach Puerto de la Cruz; dort bildet sich oft schon kurz nach Beginn der Sonneneinstrahlung eine mehr oder weniger geschlossenen Wolkendecke, die einen Flug dann verunmöglicht. Flüge Richtung Guimar sind aber auch möglich - mit SEHR viel Wetterglück sogar beides am gleichen Tag. Schwierigkeit eindeutig stört der Passatwind; besser: die Bewölkung! Obwohl wir mit unseren Gleitschirmen nicht "IFR" fliegen (dürfen), kann ein GPS (ev ein Kompass) durchaus nützliche Dienste leisten, sollte diese Wolkendecke etwas zu dick werden ;-) Gefahren/ Probleme: siehe Beschreibung der Landeplätze Seilbahn:Auf den Teide: JA - aber nur zur Aussicht und OHNE GS-Ausrüstung...Unterkunft:www.teneriffa-paragliding.de/index2.htmlSonstiges:Mike (Michael Theiss, DHV Fluglehrer; 0034 6 19 54 03 36 (> www.teneriffa-paragliding.de/index2.html), bietet nicht nur Unterkunft auf seiner sehr ruhog gelegenen Finca in der Nähe von Valle San Lorenzo (Jama) und geführte Gleitschirmtrips auf der Insel an, sondern hat auch ein sehr grosses Wissen über die (Flug-)Verhältnisse auf Teneriffa. Mit ihm besteht eine grosse Chance "zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort" zu sein! http://www.zonasdevuelo.com/zonasvuelo.html?fz=83 2200m de desnivel, junto a la carretera del Parque Nacional del Teide.
