This was my first time to do paragliding and what an incredible experience it was!

I done the main flight which meant flying off the Galichica mountain 1700 metres high and the views were amazing! Check out the photos I uploaded to this review and you will see! I would say that if you are going to do it, definitely choose to do the main flight! It is so worth it!

An important point to make is that the whole thing was very organised and professional from start to finish.

My pilot was Kristijan and he helped make my overall experience unforgettable. He really went the extra mile in every way possible to do so. About 3 months ago I had decided to go to North Macedonia and do paragliding so I contacted the few companies that operate there. Kristijan really stood out to me and made an effort to connect on a personal level rather than just being business like just like the others. It is not just the activity itself that makes it an amazing experience, it is the people that you meet/do it with too. This is important to me and he really did that.

I highly recommend paragliding in Ohrid and with Fly Ohrid Paragliding!

I am sure that I will be back one day!

Thank you Kristijan!

Excellent communication, pickup straight from the door. Really friendly staff and experienced, knowledgeable instructors helped put us at ease. The flight was a fantastic experience - smooth and peaceful: Ohrid is a great location to do paragliding. My 10yr old son loved it and wants to do it again! Even the jeep ride up to the launching place on the mountain was fun.

The whole process from booking to returning home was smooth and easy. I’d definitely return again. We were offered a scenic flight for an extra cost before launch. I’m still unclear as to what the difference is between that and the regular flight, so perhaps the team could provide a bit more detail on this at the time of booking.

Fantastic memories from today - thank you FlyOhrid 😊

Had a wonderful time flying high in the sky. Ane and Kristijan were amazing guides and ensured that my team and I were always well looked after, fed and comfortable. Thank you so much for taking the time to support us all and sharing the valuable knowledge you have. I would highly recommend this company and will hopefully be returning again on future visits to Macedonia.

My son, husband and my paragliding experiences all lasted around 9 minutes. I feel a disappointed I did not get the promised 15-30minutes. I didn’t even fly over the lake. The weather was not an issue....we were told it was a perfect day.
They are safe, professional and friendly.

Hello My friends passenger First i want to say no one Paragliding Pilot can`t promise flight without engine 15-30 minutes , Many reasons, Firts on our brochure is 15-20 approximately sometimes short than 15min sometimes longer than 20min, Dependence from weather therm condition and from level altitude from take off. Many times flight time dependence from passengers hims filling, with longer flights many times they start to fill seek and dizzy. Flight start when we start preparing the passenger , and finish when we unlock passenger on the ground from hims harnesses. We say they a safety started and safety landed. Thanks to you for the last words "They are safe, professional and friendly.", I just want to explain to you and other passenger who will plan to come with us WE CANT PROMISED FLIGHT OVER 16min on the air, Also some times we have flight over 30min, when the conditions with therm give us chance to fly over 30min. the passenger doesn`t pay extra money for extra 3 or 4 min longer flight. Our cars need 15-20 min to come down for next tour, we want also flight time to be like 20 min, but some times we can`t calculate with the weather and passenger fillings. SAFETY FIRST... Thanks, Fly Ohrid Team...

We read positive opinions and we were looking forward to this experience,but nothing was what we expected and i had impression that my pilot he didn't care at all.
We flew with them this week and i am giving negative opinion because:
1) On the website they say fly over Ohrid lake but they brought us on the other side with worse view
2) We had to wait long time because of other customers that were supposed to fly but only 1 person did
3) The main car was not prepared(not enough fuel) and we drove to the top with this very old small car that was not very safe.
4) There was no explanation at all of both flights and how to use the Go pro camera and one was not even on from the beginning
5) In the price t-shirt is included and he promised to bring them to our hotel but it never happened.
HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

We were leaving Ohrid on Friday midday and managed to fit in a last minute paragliding session. We were picked up on time and straight away made our way upto the top of the National park ready to paraglide off the top of the hill. It was 4 of us in total, we were given a quick safety brief and off we went!

The whole experience was a lot of fun, beautiful views of Lake Ohrid & beyond. It was a very peaceful experience and the weather was beautiful! I was scared about the take off & landing and even though I didn’t do it completely right my pilot didn’t complain or make me feel bad.

Boris & Roman were our pilots for the day and they were so lovely! Always making conversation and having fun with us, we all even did some acrobatics in the air which definitely made for a funny video!

My boyfriend was even Boris’s 600th paraglide of the summer!!!!

Communicating with the staff from fly Ohrid was very easy by phone call/WhatsApp and their English is second to none!

We managed to also get a reduced rate as it’s coming to the end of season,

I would 100% recommend this company if you’re looking to paraglide for a very cheap price but still have the quality & care of a very skilled team.

The photos & video quality are amazing & a very good memory to look back on.

Thank you for a fabulous experience!

We went to Ohrid at the end on October and we were very lucky to find a weather good enough to fly.
We didn't have much notice but we decided to do it anyway and it was worth it.
Our pilot could speak english, he was nice but definitely a better pilot than driver. We went 1700m high and we had to wait fro the best wind condition, we appreciated the "safety first" philosophy.
It was 3 of us flying tandem and 1 student flying solo. I was the last one so I had to wait the other two but the view was great so waiting wasn't to bad.
The flight per se is quite short (around 10 minutes each) and during the flight if we felt comfortable we could decide to to some acrobatic moves for an extra fee (usually 15€, since we were to we had a discount) . The first part was exciting and yet relaxing, the acrobatic part was fun and a bit scary.
If you have a sensitive stomach don't eat before, after the landing I felt quite sick but it didn't help I was the last one so we went back with the car straight after.
The whole experience for 2 was 150€ (we didn't have to pay the NAtional Park fee because it was out of season, but is around 5€ per person).
Pictures and video of the whole flight are included in the price.
Overall, I would do it again and it was worth it.

The organization was excellent. Everybody was kind and friendly. When you go to their website you will read that the flight lasts betweeen 10 and 15 minutes depending on the weather conditions. When we got there the instructors knew that the weather conditions wouldn't allow for a long flight. We flew less than 5 minutes. Straight down from the mountain. They care more about the number of flights in a day (money) than the quality and length of an individual flight. Be ready to pay 70 euros plus 5 euros for the entrance into the National Park for something that could be a very short flight. They should think about making a pause and waiting for proper conditions instead of rushing people just to get more money. In the end nobody even apologized and there was no discount. Disapointing.

Hello my friend First at all i want to apologize for short time flight. You now we a free flyers without engine, and we can't control weather, we control safety. We put air time flight on our web because everyone ask for that, and we say around 10 or 15 min around mean can be less or more... If some one flight more than 10 or 20 min we not charge extra money for longer flight. also no discount for less flight time that's mine around. Our car driving down after our takeoff and they drive down around 20min. we want each flight doesn't matter witch elevation we use to be 20min. but that's we can't control depends from weather thermik , and fillings of passenger, We control Safety. This is explanation only. Sorry again.

The first part of the flight was wonderful, the weather was nice and I felt safe with Kristijan as my pilot. At the end of the flight, Kristijan asked me if I he could do some acrobatics in the air with me for an extra charge. I actually didn't want to do the acrobatics because I was anxious and I only wanted to enjoy the wonderful view. But he kept trying to convince me and I didn't want to start a discussion up there in the air, which is why I might have sounded a bit ambiguous to him. So he did the acrobatics with me, two times, and I didn't like it at all. Back on the ground I told him, that it was not okay to do the acrobatics without my clear consent and at least I didn't have to pay extra for the acrobatics. But sadly, this marred my first paragliding-experience a bit. So all I can say is - be VERY clear about what you want and don't want up there in the air, then it can be a cool experience!
