Smooth, exhilarating, the feeling of flying in this safe setup is awesome. The whole staff was friendly, knowledgeable and reassuring that it is a safe ride. They were great. Wished the ride would have lasted longer it was that fun. We talked my sister into doing it and she was glad we did. I didn't stop smiling for hours. Highly... More

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 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.
