Have you been paragliding before? If yes, you know what to expect, either you enjoy to fly or you just repeat the muted scream ohmygodohmygodwewilldie! behind your frozen face.
If this would be your first a few comments may help. The guys go everyday if the weather allows. And they don't mind if you want to join in. Picked me from my guest house and on the way leaving the city we shared extreme sport experiences. His nose was all bruised, what made me think for a moment if you want to go with him, but he told me what happened so the trust was not lost. Arrived to the landing area I have been offered either to be taken with the car to the starting point, or just climb up on the hill. I chose the climbing, and have been given a bottle of water - nice touch. After a 15 minutes climb at the starting point I have given the sit I will use - it would have been nice to be told BEFORE the flight that this sit would protect me in any unwanted situation. Anyway, I was instructed what to do, and in 5 minutes we were ready to fly. And so we did. It was a 20 minutes ride, and I have no idea if you will enjoy it. The only way for me to describe is to compare to the flying dreams. (the nice ones, not the falling ones) We had seagulls flying next to us and peace and the wind is gently blowing your hair. I noticed these things right after screaming for 5 minutes with frozen face. (see above)
My guide told me, if somebody is too scared, it is possible to land fairly quick, so nobody is tortured too long. I have been offered to take over the control, and asked which direction to fly. Overall it was a big adrenalin rush (really big) and a memorable experience.
It is a shame that I have no chance to join their 5 jump tour, what they do over nice Icelandic spots. Cannot imagine how nice it would be to see Sellfoss from bird eye view.
