See the magnificent South Coast of Iceland from both the ground and above with this amazing paragliding self-drive tour. Those looking for unique activities to fully experience the beauty of the Icelandic nature should not miss this adventure.
You will be picked up from your hotel or place of choice by a representative of the car rental company who will drive you to collect your vehicle. Then you'll hit the road, driving past glaciers and waterfalls on your way to the village of Vík on the South Coast.
On the way, you will make a few stops to admire the view as you drive on the Ring Road (Route 1). After booking, you will be provided with a recommended itinerary, pointing you to some of the South Coast's most beautiful attractions like the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, and the black sand beach of Reynisfjara.
Once you get to the village of Vík, the highlight of your tour begins. There, you will meet your experienced tandem paragliding instructor pilot who will take you to the take-off location for your adventure.
After brief instructions and safety checks, you will take off into the air. No prior knowledge of flying or paragliding is needed; all you have to do is follow the instructions, run down a gentle slope, and then you'll be in the air! You can just sit back in your harness and enjoy the views of black sand beaches, tall and mighty mountains, and vast lava fields from above.
Should you want a keepsake of your fun and exciting day, you can purchase an SD card with in-flight HD videos and photos of your adventure in the air.
