Paragliding is the calmest and safest form of free flying known to man. A tandem flight is performed with an experienced instructor pilot, keeping you safe while feeling the adrenaline rush through your veins. Once the wing is inflated and safety checks are done, we take a few steps down a slope, then we soar into the air.
Tandem paragliding flights vary in duration and it is not possible to fully guarantee a specific flight time, due to the changeable nature of winds and weather in Iceland. We aim to fly for 10-15 minutes, but if conditions are not ideal and we think we might shorten the flight time, we will tell you beforehand.
Your pilot will be equipped with a high definition video camera, from which you can get the files at the end of your flight.
Are you in a wheelchair or have limited mobility?
That is not a problem! We are equipped with a specially designed wheelchair which enables us to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. Our expert staff and the sleek design of the wheelchair will keep you safe and comfortable as you soar, like a bird through the air.
