Description

Soar over lava fields, geothermal areas and snow-capped mountains on a 2-hour tandem paragliding adventure in Reykjavik. As a tandem passenger, no prior experience is needed. Expert paragliding instructors walk you through preparations and safety checks before your flight. The paraglider has no motor and uses flowing air to glide through the sky like a bird.

Your paragliding adventure begins at your accommodation in Reykjavik or at the predetermined meeting point. Hop in a 4x4 truck and drive up an off-road mountain track to the jumping-off point which varies based on the weather.

When you reach your location, your experienced pilot will evaluate the weather conditions. If flying conditions are not ideal, you have the choice to reschedule, choose another aerial tour or get a full refund.

Strap on the safety gear with the help of your pilot and prepare for the flight. Bring your camera at your own risk; a GoPro video will be available for purchase at the end of the flight.

Stay on your feet as your pilot pulls the paraglider up over your heads. When your pilot gives you the go ahead, run together down the slope until you are running on air. The paraglider will lift you both up and and before you know it, you’ll be flying.

Relax and enjoy the sights as your pilot controls the paraglider and you soar over Reykjavik. If you feel like it, take supervised control of the paraglider and learn the basics of free flight or ask your pilot can make some extra in-air adrenaline-filled moves.

Land on the ground after about 20 minutes of flying time and head back to Reykjavik.
