The Challenge of La Palma is promoted in several International Festivals.


A couple of years ago, professional tandem pilot Javier Lopez had a vision: some of the best pilots of the world were speeding along the coast of his dear island of La Palma, together with Canarian pilots, to land on the beach of Puerto Naos in front of astonished tourists...

That vision came true during the Final of the Challenge Island of La Palma, a unique paragliding competition that succeeded in a task that very few competitions do out of the Acro scene: to bring Paraglider to the eyes of the big public. The second Challenge Island of La Palma is a Paragliding competition of distance flights that will give away a total of 24,000 euros in prizes for pilots in 3 categories (general, DHV1/1-2 gliders, and up to DHV2 gliders).

The objective is to attract a high number of pilots to the warm and sunny Canary Island and promote paragliding at this beautiful location.
