Our Algarve microlight flights offer you an experience like no other bringing together an exhilarating sense of adventure and truly breathtaking views of the landscape below. You’ll see the region as you’ve never seen it before- the vivid blues of the sea and sky, the dramatic craggy coastline and golden sandy beaches, historic monuments and picturesque towns hugging cliff tops and mountain side and whitewashed villages nestling amongst citrus orchards.
From our base in Lagos you can choose between a number of microlight flights from a 10 minute microlight flight over the pretty seaside town of Lagos to a 60 minute flight to Sagres and Cape St Vincent the Algarve western most point where the land plunges into the sea. On each flight you will see how the microlight is prepared for the flight, the takeoff, an introduction to the effects of the aircraft controls and a gliding and landing demonstration. Prices start from €55.
