Once the wing is inflated and safety checks are done few steps are taken down a slope then step into the air. Read the following information carefully before you show up for your flight.

Paragliders are structures with a soft wing and no internal frame. You are connected to the wing by at least 30 lines any of which is strong enough to support your full body weight. The speed of flying is slower compared to other methods and the seat is very comfy almost like a lounge chair which allows you to relax and enjoy the views straight after take-off.

Included:  Paragliding flight with instructor pilot and all neccessary gear.

You will need:

  • Closed shoes, hiking boots are best
  • Warm clothes, as it is colder in the air than on the ground
  • Gloves
  • A thin hat to fit under your helmet
