Nepal guided holiday tours with FlySpain

From the beginning, you are met at the airport and taken to your hotel to spend the first night in the ancient city of Kathmandu, before being flown out to Pokhara the next morning. The 25 minute flight provides the most spectacular vista of the Himal and a first taste of the views that you will encounter during the days to come.FlySpain worldwide trips and holidays

The lively lakeside town of Pokhara is nestled at the foot of the Annapurna massif. From your hotel room, you can see 3 of the
highest mountains in the world, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manasulu, all 8000m peaks. Your introduction to Himalayan flying is the vast Pokhara valley. We spend the first few days flying the sites around this beautiful landscape. From Pokhara we set off on a 2 night expedition to Sirkot, after some magic flying there we head back or fly back to Pokhara before our final leg to Bandipur, a traditional Newari village, to fly another couple of days.

The final spectacular drive to the Kathmandu valley will leave a lasting impression.

Colombia, South America

The aim is to arrive en-mass on the 3rd February and fly until the 17th ... our plan is to fly 3 or 4 areas around Colombia for some serious Xc - flying and fill our boots with air time.

This is an outstanding winter trip, we've been there four times over the last five years when Northern Europe is still dark and cold! Our winter fortnight trip abroad will be all about thermalling and Xc. Politics in Colombia has meant it is super safe and offers great Xc routes, well trodden by the recent world championships. There should be abundant opportunity to get some Xc flying at every opportunity and get to know what is one of the most friendly and beautiful countries in South America.

The driver has a Gps so you can phone or radio in your position and he'll track you down, the accommodation is can often be farm houses boasting pool and BBQ facilities. Breakfast will be included in most places you just need to find lunch and dinner.

Who can come? - Pilots who have done some thermalling, conditions are generally pretty mellow, so if you've achieved some good flying with us in Algo or elsewhere you'll be joining the XC dots in no time with two FlySpain Instructors on hand to guide you

  • Reliable South American weather for outstanding flying abroad over winter
  • Superb First Xc possibilities
  • Full Aircon retrieve vehicle and driver on hand
  • Two weeks of glorious winter paragliding
