Some of you are still wondering what is tandem paragliding. Technically, paragliding is a free flying in a foot launched aircraft.

A tandem paraglider is designed to carry two people — the instructor and the passenger. The passenger is strapped into a harness right in front of an experienced paragliding pilot during the paragliding tandem flights.

Tandem paragliding is a sublime adrenaline rush. You don’t need previous experience, due to one of our expert paraglider pilots will be the one who will do all the hard work. Once you are strapped into your harness, you just need to run a bit to take off, and then sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning views. Oh, don’t forget to smile for the camera!
