Hello - I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on something exciting to do in or around Mendoza City in early January? Hot Air Balloon, Hang-Gliding, anything like that. I found a sight that advertises something it calls "Canopy or Tirolesa." Any suggestions/recommendations?
Thanks so much!
-Michael

Michael..
Hand gliding definitely. Tirolesa is gliding on a rope, from one point of the cliff to another. Any time of the year.
I can investigate further.

Welcome Michael!

And don't forget rafting for a change of "air" to "water". And if you are into water sports, Mendoza has 8 dams where you could do canoeing, windsurf, jets/ski, diving, etc. I would not know specific service providers but you can count on this as well as with 'parapente' and 'aladeltismo' services around the city.

Also worth mentioning, horse riding in the Andes, not just for the day, but like 3 + days, roughing it up, camping etc..
4x4 wheeling also
Mendoza is big in adventure.. !
