I cannot recommend High Sierras highly enough. Chris and the team make you feel extremely welcome from the moment you arrive and really look after you all the way through your stay. I went for the “development” week and found that my stay was completely tailored to my needs and capabilities and in just one week I came back feeling hugely improved as a pilot. Chris strikes a great balance between stretching you though the encouragement of tasks but at the same time equips you to achieve them thro
Marvellous experience. Chris and Ray welcomed me to a week of unforgettable excitement. Provided me with expert guidance to improve my flying skills. I had many good flights. By the end of the week my confidence had improved considerably. I am a better pilot.
I felt masterly prepared before I arrived thanks to Chris' proactive approach. I had a wonderful experience which will set me on my way to become a good flyer I hope. I will revisit for sure. In fact I stayed an extra 5 days. You will be put into a cottage in town. It is non fussy clean and comfortable. If you require anything then ask for it and it will be delivered to you. The village has all you need and the surrounding areas are beautiful and culturally astonishing.
I recently spent a week flying with Chris, also supported by his wife Lynn and colleague Ray. Having not flown for many months, it was reassuring to know Chris was there to help guide and advise me, especially when flying from new sites. Their set up is perfect for pilots of all standards, and there was a mixed level of experience during the week I stayed with Chris. The accommodation on offer is available in two nearby locations (Algodonales & La Muela) and pick up from each location is provide
High Sierras paragliding is a top notch operation. I couldn't recomend them enough. My brother and I flew to Spain on a whim and called Chris last minute and he fit us into his schedule with no problems. He provided guiding service, along with Ray Wooding, for the next 5 days. We flew everyday and had some really nice XC flights. Chris communicated brilliantly and was super generous and sincere with his guidance and advice. They manage groups really well and do there best to help everybody
Just had a fantastic week in Algo with Chris and Lynne. Great place, company and flying. Just the ticket for a great guided week.
Chris and Lynn will make sure you have a fantastic time in the Algodonales area. Their accomodation is an excellent standard and they are both really friendly and go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your holiday. I improved my paragliding dramatically with Chris's expert tuition. Even though it was windy all week, Chris was prepared to drive two hours to find us a site, so that we flew on 4 days out of 6. He even took us mountain biking on another day. The whole area is stunning.
Well what can i say! The guys at High Sierras are hands down the most genuine people who really go out there way to get you to fly!! ( Even if its a 5 hour round trip)! Really enjoyed the time we spent at Algodonales, the house we stayed in was very clean and had everything you need, weather wasn't on our side at all but at least we had good company and one of the best experiences yet. I will definitely be booking again for sure as it's a wonderful place to see and visit
Great week paragliding with High Sierras, dodgy forecast turned out fab as Chris and Lynne made every effort to get us in the air. We flew every day except the travelling days. Happy days. 😎.
A great team Chris an Ray both being supportive, constructive and helping to improve my ground handling an thermal flighing giving me confidence to leave the mountain for XC pastures new, my first full XC unknown landing point, not so far at twin peaks but a million miles for me an a beaming smile. Sorry you had to land out behind me Ray 😜 In summary totally happy with the service.
"I have just completed 2 weeks CP+ course with High Sierras and can thoroughly recommend them. After completing my CP last August I was 'rusty' to say the least, but with Chris's expert guidance and lots more ground handling practice I was led confidently to my first flights by the end of the 2 weeks. Chris is one of the most passionate paraglider instructors I have met and is very patient, working hard to get the most progression from you. Flew most days, even when other outfits around did not"
"Brilliant guiding , lovely people. Highly recommended 😎"
"Just come back from my 4th paragliding trip with Chris and Lynn. Great location, very friendly and easy-going hosts. Extensive local knowledge, patient guiding in the air, efficient retrieves all make for a brilliant flying holiday."
This is a great location for paragliding, with plenty of sites within a short drive and stunning scenery. Where Chris and Lynn excel is that they don't think of themselves as just paragliding guides (like so many do), but they go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday too. Accommodation is simple but spotless and the organisation is superb. Can't recommend High Sierras highly enough. I'll definitely be back.
"Had a mint time with Chris Williams got an out and return to Ronda & back + a 60 triangle and XC to Ronda"
"Had a great week of paragliding guiding with Chris Williams. A very knowledgable, attentive, safe and proactive guide. He and Lynn are also nice people and fun to be with. What more could you want?!"
"Chris and Lynn take the personal approach to para-guiding. They're their for you at every step of the way, and when you finally get the hang of it, Chris is an epic flying buddy!"
"Just returned from another excellent trip with Chris Williams of High Sierras at La Muela based very close to Lijar take off sites. Chris and Lynn and excellent hosts. Chris and Ray actually fly with you while guiding. I am going with them again in June for a SIV course."
"Brilliant week of flying. Chris and Lynn are excellent hosts and really go the extra mile to make your holiday a great one 👍"
"Chris is a great pilot AND a great teacher. With Lynn as driver-retrieve support they make a very good team, friendly, generous with their advice and time, you won't find a better paragliding experience"
"1st class guiding in the air by Chris and working as a team with your mates. Great fun, nice place to stay. Really enjoyed Chris and Lynns company. Looking forward to the next trip. They go the extra mile! My second trip very pleased."
"Excelllent week thanks. Definately went the extra mile! Thanks Chris and Lynn"
"Just got back from a week with Chris and Lynn. Even though we had a poor week of weather they tried hard to get us airborne whenever possible and on non flying days alternative activity was on offer. I will be back!!!!"
"In this small village you’ll feel like nowhere else. No tourists, incredibly chilled out and beautifully quiet. Chris and Lynne are giving their full attention and lots of their time, some days starting at 8 AM and not finishing until you all had a solid meal and a few pints! Plenty of sites around, amazing weather (even in November!) and Chris’s great coaching and ad-hoc line repair ;) skills will help you to get some unforgettable memories. If you're lucky Pepe's landing bar will there"
"Had a great week with High Sierras, perfect location, accommodation is good and Chris & Lynn went out of their way to ensure we went flying 6 days out of 7. Lost only 1 days flying through rain, (it was October)"
"Brilliant week, well looked after both in the air and on the ground. Chris and Lynn are great hosts, with good guiding, retrieves and accommodation. Thanks!"
"This is my first paragliding holiday and I have really enjoyed it. I've made loads of progress during the week. Chris has Ben an excellent guide on the mountain and Lynn has been a most brilliant hostess. Highly recommended."
"I would highly recomend if you are looking for a guided week. My first big thermals, first cloud base and first XC and of course flying with the vultures…Truly amazing Chris and Lynn went above and beyond to make sure we had great week."
