Description of Volar en Asturias

Crossing the heavens has always been a yearning for mankind since the most remote times. But nowadays that desire can already be fulfilled thanks to the technology emerged in our days. Therefore Flying Asturias is dedicated to performing different types of activities but with a common goal: to fly.

In the current times, taking a flight is a very simple and accessible thing to everyone. Our company offers two types of flight, both very different from each other so that each person can choose the flight that best fits their preferences.
  • Paraglider: With this option, the participants will be accompanied by an instructor on a two-seater paraglider. The professionals will be the ones to control the flight and allow the passenger to enjoy quietly the trip and even take pictures with a special camera. There are different types of flights depending on the take-off area. Participants have also the option to control the paraglider if requested.
  • Hot air balloon: These aircrafts have a capacity for more than one person, so it is a highly recommended activity for small groups, or for couples on a romantic trip. You can attend to the assembling process live, observing also how the giant envelope is inflated and understanding how the magnificent hot air balloon works.

Choose the option you like the most and finally fulfil that old dream of contemplating the whole landscape at birds-eye.

Totally recommendable experience !! I gave him a balloon ride to my partner for his birthday and we really enjoyed it. The views of the coast and surroundings of Gijón are spectacular, the balloon imposes a lot (it is huge) and the landing is an adventure that has to live. Also, Jorge and Maria are lovely and explain everything to you. We will repeat for sure !! Beatriz

Perfect, flying through the City of Gijon and enjoying incredible views of the city, beach and surrounding hills has been a unique experience. Very well organized, and in spite of the meteorology the pilot Roberto has been able to choose the best time for the activity. A 10 per team and highly recommended experience.

It has been a very nice experience and recommended for all who enjoy the heights :) It is well organized, although this type of activities always depend on the weather, we were lucky and we were able to fly at the agreed time. Also, the monitors are very nice and tell you many things of interest during the flight.

Impressive feeling of flying. Not only the activity is great for the sensations and the landscapes in sight of bird (Crow's Hill). The people who form the crew of volarenasturias, both on the ground and the pilot, provide an exquisite treatment. Very important and thank you to get in touch the night before the day of the flight to confirm or cancel before adverse climatology.

The experience was good, how good we had more flying time because we could not find a meadow to land and we enjoyed more time flying.

If we had actually flown the estimated time equal is a bit expensive for what it is, but it's worth it.

Very relaxing and beautiful. Good professionals.

How to get there?
We are in Nuevo Roces. Arriving from the highway take the exit of "El llano", when arriving at the roundabout take the 3rd exit that indicates "shopping centers", you climb a small hill and go down until you pass under the highway reaching a new roundabout. Take the first exit towards Leroy Merlin on our right. Passing Leroy Merlin we arrive at a new roundabout in which we take the first exit and drive along the left lane. We will arrive at a crossroads in which we will turn left, we advance 50 meters and we arrive again at a crossroads where we turn left again. If we are going back to Leroy Merlin again, we are going in the right direction. Just turn in the right lane we will see our place about 30 meters from the last crossing.

Description of Volar en Asturias Ballooning

Surfing the skies in a hot air balloon is a simple activity, that can be practised by everybody, and that allows us to admire, from an incredible height, everything that lies beneath our feet. In Volar Asturias we love the features of this type of flights, that is why we want to let anyone willing to do this activity to jump into one of our balloons and live the emotions that arise on board.

We fly across some of the main areas of Asturias in our journeys, such as the coastal city of Gijón, the capital Oviedo and some less urban areas like the Nava Valley or the tourist Llanes.

At the beginning of the activity, before going up, you will be given the necessary instructions to know how to act once in the balloon, as well as the basic safety measures. You can see from the first line how the structure is assembled and the balloon is inflated, and even participate in the process if you wish to. The routes last around 45 minutes and one hour, enough time to travel around the area chosen and appreciate the stunning views.

At the end of the trip, a certificate will be handed out stating that the person has made the flight, and a toast will be held to celebrate that moment. After that, we'll return to the meeting place after packing the balloon.

It must be taken into account that the weather conditions can influence in the performance or not of the activity.

Riding in the sky was never so easy. Fly with us!

Description of Volar en Asturias Paragliding

Volar en Asturias offers you the possibility to see what if feels like feeling the fresh air in your face first-hand. This is possible down to paragliding flights, a unique way of flying hand in hand with a professional instructor. He will be in charge of ensuring your safety so that you can make the most of the experience.

We offer four different kinds of flights. You can choose among the following:
  • Coast flight. This flight takes place nearby the sea and will enable you to gaze at the beaches and rock formations from the heights. 
  • Mountain flight. The starting point is Picu del Solo. By means of this flight, you'll be able to look at the streets, squared and roads of Gijón.
  • High mountain flight. You'll take off from a high altitude point and get to know the mountain in which you're in: L'Angliru or Cotobello.
  • Flight and steering. This modality is perfect if you want to go a step futher and learn how to ride a gliding.
The length of each flight will depend on each traveller's likes and the place. We'll give you a photographic report at the end of the activity.
