Launch yourself into the sky with an expert paraglider in this unique experience. Paragliding is a hybrid between hang gliding and skydiving that can be as peaceful or as thrilling as you like. Paragliders launch from hills or the top of cliffs like hang gliders, but look more like parachuters and land at a much slower speed.
After arriving at the location and doing a short hike to the launch site, you will be paired with a highly experienced tandem instructor who will teach you a little about paragliding and set you up in the tandem paraglider. After launching, you will have stunning views from the sky and, if conditions allow, your instructor might even let you take control of the paraglider. You do not have to have any prior knowledge about paragliding to enjoy the phenomenal views and remarkable experience.
