Paragliding

Enjoy unparalleled aerial views of the countryside and experience the feeling of weightlessness as you soar through the clouds amongst the birds.

Paragliding is an air sport in which a trained pilot and participant fly a foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid structure. Upon takeoff the shape of the paraglider canopy is maintained by air pressure with the pilot and participant being suspended in a sitting or supine position. Once airborne, it takes very little effort or skill to fly a paraglider. However, practice for take offs and landing is important. As a beginner, training will be involved here to land and take off safely with your pilot.
