Hang Gliding in Houston

Houston, TX
Hang Gliding
10 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day


Join Explorer Chick for a Women-Only Hang Gliding Mini Adventure in Houston, Texas!

Take to the skies gliding weightlessly around 2,000 feet up in the air!

We’ll start our Mini Adventure with Ground School learning everything we need to know for a successful flight. Then, you’ll hop aboard a Tow Plane with your instructor and hang glider to climb to an altitude of 2,000 feet.

Then, there’s no place to go but down! After launch, you’ll be riding the waves of the wind soaring through the sky!

The best part? The instructor will hand the reins over to you giving you COMPLETE control of flying your Hang Glider! 🤩

Yes, you heard me right! You will get a chance to FLY on your own! 🤪

  • Ground School prior to Flight
  • All Safety equipment needed
  • The Best views only able to be seen from the sky!

*Explorer Chick and its partners reserve the option to modify trip itineraries at the discretion of your tour director as necessary due to weather, conditions, illness, injury, group dynamics, or other unforeseen incidents.

*Tipping your Guides is optional and not included in the price of your adventure. Gratuities may be given to one leader—the team divides tips among themselves after the trip. We recommend 10-20%.

Why aren’t Guide gratuities included in the trip price? Allowing Guides to accept tips is customary in the tour industry and for good reason. Explorer Chicks enjoy the opportunity to recognize their Guides personally for their hard work and keeping them safe.
