But the staff were very professional and friendly, even the couples who own the place were present with us most of the time to ensure proper arrangements were made and safety aspects are strictly followed. The instructors were experienced especially A.J. and were... More

We went paragliding in August 2015, the owner (husband and wife team) Shannon and Pine were absolutely fantastic. Their staff also was so friendly and great to be around. We had a exciting time jumping off the cliff. They did an understanding job making it relaxing. They explained everything and put you at ease so that you could enjoy the... More

Pine, the owner, knew I'd had a bummer paragliding experience at another outfit, so he went out of his way to make sure I had a long, long, wonderfully exciting ride with a great (and fun) pilot, Vic. I highly recommend Adventure Paragliding. You guys rock! -Annie, a.k.a., "Arnie."

First time ever...and what a amazing flight I had over the Rockies with pilot Pine Pienaar! Amazing experience and stunning view of the Rockies and town Glenwood Springs. Thanks Pine and Shannon for the great service from the Glenwood Adventure Center to take off and a perfect landing! We will be back!

Really beautiful and amazing experience! The staff was incredible friendly and super comforting from start to finish. It's really not as scary as you would think and provides gorgeous views of the mountains and the valley below. We had Pine and Victor as instructors and they were both amazing, all the other staff were wonderful too. We felt safe the... More

This was the BEST experience ever! My husband, 13yr old daughter and I all had great pilots. They were very experienced and made the flight amazing. Words cannot adequately explain how enjoyable and fun it was.

The whole crew involved was helpful, calming, and just excited for the adventure we were about to embark on. Couldn't have felt safer w/ these fellas; the temperature and wind was perfect; the views were indescribable. As newb paragliders, we're... More

I flew on my 21st birthday and it was a great present! I was nervous about flying but the guides clearly knew what they were doing and I felt safe the whole time. The flights are tandem, which means you fly with an instructor harnessed right behind you (but not in an uncomfortably close way). Each flight lasts 20-30 minutes... More
