I had a great trip with Sammi, Ása and Thráinn! They explained everything really well, were really happy and positive and overall made this a super fun experience. And then the paragliding itself was pretty cool as well ;P It was amazing to fly in between the birds, next to the cliffs and see Iceland from above. I would definitely recommend it and hope to go paragliding again some time!

My husband and I just came back from an incredible trip to Iceland. We participated in snowmobiling, Inside the Volcano, Zodiac Glacial Lagoon, snorkeling the Silfra FIssure,and more.....but hands down, Paragliding with True Adventure was our FAVORITE activity that we highly recommend. We are in our 50s by the way. Sammi and Throwen (sorry for the spelling!) are very experienced, fully licensed paragliding pilots. We took off over the beautiful mountain Reynisfjara with the black sandy beach and basalt columns below and landed back on the top of the mountain without a hitch; Sammi let me steer and I was surprised at my lack of nerves...it truly felt like we were flying like a bird. Please keep in mind that due to weather and wind conditions, you may be taking off from another spot. These pilots must understand the weather well to do this job safely as they do. Many thanks to the team, Sammi, Throwen (sorry for the misspell), Ausa and Isa were all super friendly and helpful from the booking to the successful execution. The photos and video from this were priceless and if you do nothing else in Iceland, you must Paraglide with True Adventure!

Kids (23,21,19 & 17) all went Paragliding with Tim and Þráinn and Sammi and Katla joined us at Black Sand Cafe by the beach to celebrate. Just an amazing experience. I was to go that day but postponed and weather didn’t cooperate today (too windy) so missed the chance. Don’t make the same mistake and go when you can. These guys are amazing. Thanks!

We were originally scheduled to do tandem paragliding but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. We switched to do their zip line adventure instead. It was a super fun alternative. Even after the zip line they still attempted to check the winds to see if we could make it happen. They really went out of their way and we appreciated their professionalism and knew they thought safety first. Great people to work with and I highly recommend.
