Have you ever dream of flying free like a bird? First-timers often describe their flight as “breathtaking” and “spiritual,” saying that they fulfilled their dream of flying like a bird. Paragliding is flying in its simplest form, so it’s the closest you can get to this experience. People are often surprised by how comfortable they feel in the air and love how they feel “at one” with the elements.
Flying in smooth weather on a paraglider can be surprisingly calm and relaxing. If the idea of watching the sunset from a comfortable seat in the air, supported by the buoyant evening air, with perhaps an eagle joining you off your wing tip, appeals to you, then paragliding is for you.
Of course, if you want a more exciting flight, we can make it happen!
Paragliding is as safe as driving a car and safer than riding a bicycle. It is the safest way to fly. Of course it is an adventure sport, and as all outdoor activities it is very safe when practised correctly. Our main pilot Oliver has 27 years of experience and all his tandem flights have been completed safely with no injury. We use high quality equipment and always respect weather conditions.
Your safety is our priority and if we have any concerns at all we won’t fly.
It is possible to fly if you’re scared of heights. If you can stay on a mountain then you can also fly. There is no “jump” off the hill. Instead, you are gently lifted off the ground, so you won’t get that plummeting feeling in your stomach. Flying paragliding is like sitting on a comfortable sofa where your eyes are looking at the horizon. Many people have braved a flight before and surprised themselves by loving every minute.
Your feet will be on the ground at the start and end of the flight, and once you are airborne you won’t be expected to do anything other than sit and relax! Your pilot will have full control of the wing at all times so if in any case you don’t feel comfortable you can let him know and he will bring you back to the ground.
No. When you go parasailing, you are towed behind a boat, attached to a parachute-style wing. Your direction is controlled by the boat, which you remain attached to, and you have no control over where you go.
Paragliding is free flight under a high-tech, ram-air airfoil, which the pilot uses to control the direction of flight and (to some extent) the speed. It’s much cooler, it is freedom of flying!
You take a few steps and off you go! There is no “jump” off the hill. Instead, you are gently lifted off the ground, so you won’t get that plummeting feeling in your stomach.
