Soar like a puffin across the gorgeous countryside of Iceland’s South Coast with this fantastic tandem paragliding tour, and experience the country’s most beloved attractions like never before.

This is the perfect tour opportunity for guests looking to add a higher level of adventure to their South Coast visit, as well as those edging to give paragliding a try in one of the world’s most beautiful regions.

This tour acts as a combination of the scheduled South Coast tour by minibus, added with a tandem paragliding flight over Reynisfjall, or another location in the Vík neighbourhood. Before taking to the skies, you’ll first pay a visit to the magnificent waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, two of the most prized attractions on the South Coast.

The tandem paragliding section of this tour begins at the meeting point in Vík í Mýrdal, a coastal village in South Iceland, found right beside the infamous black sand beach, Reynisfjara. You will be greeted by your experienced paragliding guides and, after a short safety briefing, will head off towards Reynisfjall for your aerial adventure. All paragliding guides in Iceland are APPI certified, highly knowledgeable and eager to show you the joys of their sport.

Paragliding is one of the calmest and safest forms of free-flying known to man, so be prepared for a truly unforgettable experience. Flight duration is around 15 minutes per person, though this can change given wind and weather conditions.

Fear not if you’ve never tried paragliding before, this activity is open to both experienced gliders and total newcomers. There will be no jumping off cliff faces or insane, aerial acrobatics—just a gentle, memorable experience.

Don’t hesitate any longer! Hurry now, and you too can experience the majesty of flying across South Iceland with this fantastic paragliding/sightseeing combo. Check availability by choosing a date.
