Tandem Paragliding Experience from Reykjavík

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your expert paragliding instructors on location at the activity center; alternatively, choose pickup at your Reykjavík hotel when booking. 

    Climb into a 4x4 vehicle and head up an off-road mountain track through the rugged terrain. Once at the jumping-off point, get a thorough safety briefing and orientation to the sport of paragliding. Your instructor will evaluate the flying conditions just prior to takeoff to ensure your complete safety and comfort; conditions can change rapidly. In case of a cancellation you have the choice to re-schedule, choose another aerial tour or a full refund.

    Strap into the paraglider with your instructor, take a running start off the precipice and let the drafts lift you into flight. Lean back into your harness and get comfortable to enjoy the views. Revel in the feeling of pure freedom; many adventure athletes consider this sport the closest that humans can get to the feeling of true flight. Bring your camera at your own risk; a GoPro video of the flight is available for an additional fee. 

    Your pilot/instructor will control the glider, but you have the option to take supervised control yourself. Learn the basics of free flight and give it a try, or ask your pilot to perform some heart-pounding tricks. 

    Land safety with your feet on the ground after 20 minutes of flying time, then hit the road back to Reykjavík.
