SOMOSIERRA, Mountains of Guadarrama in Madrid

Flying High in less than an hour away from Madrid

In a few kilometres away from Madrid we can enjoy a spectacular flight when the northern winds blow. Right from the port of Somosierra in Madrid we’ll fly under similar conditions as in Arcones, but slightly lower in height. So it’s ideal for when the wind is blowing too strongly in Arcones. Furthermore, its wide landing area will allow us to take off on ParaTrike and take a route around the towns near the Meseta (high central plateau in Spain), sharing the flight with sailplanes that take off from the nearby aerodrome ‘Santo Tomé del Puerto’. Its wide take off site and its easy approach is a perfect scene for our pupil’s progression.

The combination of the proximity to Madrid and the more than 500 metres of height difference make it ideal for a high mountain flight experience on any weekday afternoon.

The flight at this location is a ‘High Mountain’ type, for 89€.
