Destination
On a tandem paragliding flight you are driven to the top of the hill/cliff where you get kitted up with your helmet and harness. The instructor then prepares the paraglider so that it catches the wind and lifts up into the sky and it is fun floating gently over the landscape. The flight lasts around half an hour before the instructor guides the paraglider gently to the ground.
Flights cannot be booked early, but if you contact us with your holiday dates and location where you will be staying, we would be more than happy to keep in touch with you and confirm flights during your stay!
