What is paragliding? Everything you need to know before your flight
Paragliding is the simplest and lightest means of free flight in existence. It consists of a steerable wing connected to the pilot’s seat by a system of funicular beams. Updraft winds are used to fly, allowing the paraglider to make scenic descents lasting from 10 to 60 minutes. During the flight you remain comfortably seated and the feeling is similar to riding on a chairlift…but much more exciting!
