For those seeking an unforgettable experience, book this paragliding tour now to satisfy your craving for adventure, breathtaking views, and the joy of silent flight.

Your adventure begins as you meet your professional tandem paragliding instructor at the designated meeting location on Blafjallavegur, off Sudurlandsvegur. If you opt for pick-up in central Reykjavik, a convenient option is available for an additional fee, and it will be 30 minutes before your booked time.

The total duration of the tour, including travel time and preparations, typically ranges from 2 to 3 hours, ensuring you have ample time to enjoy this extraordinary experience.

Before take-off, your experienced pilot will provide a thorough briefing, guiding you on the basics of paragliding. You'll be equipped with a safety harness and a helmet, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the adventure. As the paraglider is inflated, you'll take a few steps down a slope, and soon, you'll find yourself walking on air.

During the approximately 10 to 15-minute flight, you'll be treated to breathtaking views of Reykjavik city, the Langjokull glacier, and several volcanoes. With luck, you might even experience a full 360° view of the horizon. The highlight, however, is the awe-inspiring sight of the ground beneath your dangling feet as you glide through the air.

The landing is a smooth and controlled process, with your pilot expertly slowing down the glider. You'll either take a few steps upon landing, feeling like descending a set of stairs, or choose to land sitting with your legs straight in front of you, cushioned by the soft harness.

Safety is of the utmost importance, with rigorously trained and highly experienced pilots using top-notch equipment approved by international authorities. Before take-off, thorough safety checks are conducted to ensure a secure and enjoyable experience for every participant.

To enhance your adventure, make sure to capture the incredible moments with the free-to-use GoPro on a stick or bring your camera at your own risk. Revel in the thrill of soaring over Iceland's stunning landscapes and share the experience with friends and family.
