The power of flight is at the top of just about every kid’s wish list, and for a good reason. Seeing the world from a new perspective, feeling the sun and breeze on your face, and experiencing the rush of freedom from the world’s most constant force are all dream-worthy goals.

Paraglider Jean-Baptiste Chandelier and his team met these goals in a video that shows paragliders soaring high above the Portuguese Azores, skipping down a snowy mountain in southern France, and streaking across a beach in northern Brazil. His ability to hover almost completely still, or to hop from pylon to pylon with total control, makes this some of the best paragliding footage ever captured.
